#18 - Great Match Preparation
This solo episode we discuss some ideas that could help you when it comes to preparing for your matches.
Whether you are playing international competition or a friendly game in the evening after work - you want to win, right?! So the easiest way to give yourself a leg up on the opponent is to be better prepared.
Turning up 3 minutes before your match and doing a few arm swings does not count as preparation. So here we talk about considerations before you even get to the club.

#17 - My FIRST European Championships with Nikhil Mohindra
This episode we talk with one of the up and coming British players, Nikhil, about his first European Championships experience - what he did to prepare, what he felt on court, about the other countries being represented and what he plans to train for the future!
There are also some very valuable tips for anyone looking to improve the level of the competition and this is a MUST LISTEN for any junior players coming through.
#16 - Padel Communication - New Partners vs Long Term
This episode with one of our students is an interesting discussion about match preparation, communication and the difference between playing with a new partner vs playing with someone you know very well.
There are different levels to understand your partner on - it is not just understanding how they play shots, it is also their decision making, their personality, what motivates them and even their organization.
Thank you to Mats for allowing us to record one of our coaching sessions and I hope more players would find this useful!

#14 - Interview with Norbert Nemcsk (Padlr) & Swiss Padel
We always enjoy interviewing players in different countries and Norbert has been involved with padel in Switzerland for the last couple of years. He gives some interesting insight into it's growth and where he think it will go from here.
We also found out the Norbert plays for Hungary, so maybe that is a place we should also keep an eye on!
Norbert also has his own podcast, which has some great interviews and you can find that here: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-padlr-podcast/id1554144344
#13 - Swedes on Tour with Andreas Johansson
Always love speaking to Andreas to find out padel news from Sweden and how the players are doing on the WPT.
The players and Andreas put in some great training time and effort during the off-season and now all that work is starting to bear fruit. The players have had a very solid start to the season and are competing well against players that have been training in padel for over a decade.
In this episode we discuss what it takes for the Swedish pairs to come through at this level and the idea of "padel concept" or "padel IQ" - probably the most valuable attribute at the highest level!

#15 - Interview with Sven from Otro Nivel
Great to chat to Sven today from Otro Nivel (YouTube Channel) about how he started his padel journey, what he thinks is important for new players to learn and about how he recommends rackets.
Sven has spent many hours on court introducing padel to people and has started his own shop in Holland, specifically designed to bring more information to players wanting to choose a racket.
