RIGHT OR LEFT? Which side of the court you should play

Coach Galo emphasizes hand dominance in selecting side

Coach Galo of Rocket Padel Bristol discusses the significance of hand dominance when selecting a side to play on. For left-handed players or a lefty-righty pairing, the right-handed partner should play on the left side, allowing optimal coverage and enabling the lefty to focus on their strengths. Conversely, if both players are right-handed, the more skilled player should choose the left side to minimize exploitation by opponents. The ability to play on both sides is emphasized for improved paddle skills, as most players favor the left side. The coach also considers the opposing team’s positioning when making this decision.
