Do You Use The Fake Smash?

Do you use the fake smash? – Padel

When should and when shouldn’t you use the fake smash?

These steps will help you by performing the fake smash in padel

  • Push back from your front foot and start turning your shoulders
  • Make sure your feet are underneath the ball and place your body in a “trophy position”. This position looks like the serving pose in tennis.
  • Make it look like you’re going for a topspin smash
  • Your racket arm goes straight up for contact and your legs come a bit off the ground
  • Contact the ball in the middle of your racket and give the ball slow speed
  • Follow your racket through in the direction of the ball
