A complementary team in padel is the main reason for the success or not of a team. To win more games, you should not just work on your physique, on your tactics or on your technique, but also on the relationship you have with your partner. The more you know yourself, the more you will be able to improve yourself and make real progress in games.

This is the main difference with tennis. Indeed, tennis (singles) is an opposition of two players, individually, who clash. On the other hand, the padel is a team sport, so two players are facing two others. So do not stand on the individual technical level of each player, but also on their complementarity. A pair that will be more complementary than the other (although technically weaker) may be able to win the match against two players intrinsically more technical (or said “better”).

This article will inform you that the relationship you have with your partner is essential, and that it must be maintained (training for two in particular). Knowledge of the partner’s game (strengths and weaknesses) is necessary for the success of the team.

Trust in your partner: the team’s base

You must believe in your teammate, you must trust him, if you are not, you will be tempted to take balls, and put you in delicate situations.

By trusting in your partner you will be able to win matches against players who are superior to you, all thanks to the motivation. Indeed, thinking about teaming up with a good player motivates, and you will increase your performance. Whereas if you tell yourself that you are teaming with a worse player, it will demotivate you. In any case, you have to trust your partner, this is the basis for being a complementary pair. In addition, if you feel comfortable with your partner, he will feel it too, and boost his performance too, but the opposite is true too, so it’s double-edged.

The relationship you have with your partner is important and important. Indeed, what you say, what you do, your partner will interpret it for good or bad. It will be necessary to be careful about of our movements and what you say to keep a good relationship. You will have to encourage him, and give brief explanations on how to proceed on the next situation.

Finally, we must not forget the communication. The success or failure of a pair in padel is in its ability to communicate with each other. This communication is there for a player who has discovered a fault in the opponent warns his partner, but also on the balls that pass in the middle to find out who takes them, a little “I! “, And that changes everything.
