The serve to the Basque, a different way of serving on the padel

- Advertising -

In his day we were talking about the types of serves that we can find in the pádel. Two formations were explained: serve the Australian and classic serve. In this article we will talk about a third, the Basque serve.

In the first place, we are going to remember the main difference between the serve to the Australian and the classic serve, the position that each player of the pair that performs the service will defend. With the serve to the Australian each player will be in charge of ALWAYS defending her side, while in the classic serve each player of the couple that serves will have to defend both positions (the right and backhand).

The serve to the Basque, an innovative training

From Basque lands we received a new formation for the service in the pádel which turns out to be quite innovative, which they called the Basque serve, a formation that comes from doubles tennis.

Far from being a simple invention, this new form of serve has been developed and implemented by the technical team of the club. pádel Padeleku coming to be verified its utility by the Spanish team runner-up in the world in Mallorca 2014.

 Advantages and disadvantages of serving Basque

  • You need a lot of coordination with your partner ... a bad implementation can make the player in the net take a hit or you can earn the point easily.
  • If it is carried out in a coordinated way it can be a surprise factor for the opponents. As we see in the video, the player in the network sends instructions to the player who takes. The synchronization between both players will be key.
  • This technique can break at a certain moment the monotony in a match where couples know each other very well.

Is this training useful?

This new form of serve can be interesting if the partner who performs it has it well rehearsed. In any case, it should be carried out in a timely manner at certain moments of a match looking for the surprise factor. If you look at the older brother of the pádel, tennis, we can see how in doubles this technique is used at certain times.

    • Very good question Cotyx! Following the regulation there is a section that could be applied to this situation. It could be considered a interference "When a player commits an action, whether deliberate or involuntary, that disturbs his opponent to execute a stroke". I will ask some referee judge to help me in the matter and I inform you. Greetings and thanks for your comment!

  1. If it is on your side of the track there are in a couple of videos that the player has his feet one on each side of the track.

  2. It is interesting this variant, auqnue as well you say to use sporadically or punctually surprise factor.

    I do not know if it compensates to train and to dedicate time to prepare and coordinate this service to use it a few times. Be as interesting as possible!

  3. As they comment on padelagogo, these things are fine to use very occasionally, if you do not lose the surprise factor and all you do is screw the very partner you get. As a habitual form of serve, it seems a bit silly to me, otherwise we would see it in all the WPT matches ...

  4. in addition, the players should be "off-road", because the same would have to play on the right or backhand side ...

  5. They should improve their serve and point, I do not think that this move from a certain level has the least positive impact for those who make it. It is as if you are caught with a kick-off, lack of reaction speed and / or perception / concentration of the receiver.

    • Thanks for your comment Miguel! I suppose that if the professionals do not practice it, it is because they do not find it very useful. However, in the video you can see Paquito Navarro practicing it. It is one more option that is there. Its use or not depends on each one. Regards!
