Knowledge of the psychological variables involved in sports performance is a fundamental aspect of achieving success in competition. The purpose of this study was to identify and describe the main psychological characteristics of high-performance padel players, to compare the psychological characteristics of padel players according to gender (male-female), to correlate the psychological characteristics of high-level padel players performance (both sexes) and compare the results with those found in the general sample of athletes. Using the Psychological Characteristics Related to Sports Performance (CPRD) questionnaire as an evaluation instrument, the available results show that paddle tennis players obtain lower scores on the different CPRD scales than the general sample of athletes; female competitors show better psychological performance than male competitors; finally, the correlations between the scales are different depending on gender.
