Where, when and how to hit the lob in Padel

The YouTube video discusses the importance of the lob in padel, highlighting three options: cross-court, down the line, and down the middle, and recommending viewing tactics courses.

In the YouTube video “Where to hit the LOB – Padel Tactics,” the presenter highlights the significance of the lob as an attacking shot in padel, distinguishing it from the defensive lob in tennis. Three lob options are discussed: cross-court, down the line, and down the middle.

Cross-court lob targets the opposite forehand corner for maximum challenge, while down the line lob is difficult to execute but can make it tough for opponents to attack. Down the middle lob offers more court space but also increases the risk of opponents counter-attacking with a bajada. The coach advises considering the opponent’s position and skill level when deciding which lob to use and encourages viewers to check out their tactics course for more in-depth information on lob techniques.
