Análisis de una Bandeja de Pádel y Consejos para mejorarla

November 7, 2019

In this section we do the technical analysis of amateur and professional players to study the details that improve performance. The first point we are going to analyse is the path of the bat As you can observe the path of the hand is downwards and finishes at the height of the net this reduces the mergin of error and the times the ball hits the net. The contact point as the path of the bat is at shoulder height. Keeping in mind his height and that he performs a leg flexion he is lowering the margin of error. Although the rebound off the wall will be lower The distance to the impact point is important to assure a good hit when moving the ball. Analysing several shots we can observe that there are significant variation in contact point distance, so adjustments are needed to improve the consistency. A good start to improve the previous points is to work on the angle of the arm during shot preparation As you can observe the angle between the body and the arm is 60° which makes the bat start from a shorter distance We can increase this angle at least to 90° Some of the best bandeja players reach 100° to 110° The weight transfer line doesn’t match the ball trajectory The angle beween the two is 14° and this makes Nacho need more effort to help the arm move the ball Forthermore, his position after the impact is not adequate to cover the return of the opponent who is moving towards the net. in parallel As we saw previously the movement of the shoulder is downwards this is not a big problem when the starting point is not low and as we can observe again in the final part of the movement Nacho is almost crouching I hope this was useful and as always: See on the court!

    Muchas Gracias! . Si , el impacto está algo mas atrasado en ese golpe, quizás para que la bola pueda salir en dirección cruzada para él (zurdo). Un saludo!!

    Incrible en analisis biomecanico… muy util. Ojala pudiera analizar mi golpeo de igual modo para cambiarlo

    Interesante, pero creo que hace falta el análisis de un profesional o alguien que sí haga bien la bandeja de tal manera que podamos ver y aprender los movimientos correctos. Un video contrastando al buen Nacho con un profesional sería genial.
