The aim of this study was to analyse the influence of the game and set score on game volume and intensityparameters in professional padel. A total of 3241 points (1639 for women and 1602 for men) corresponding to22 matches of the 2020 season of the World Padel Tour professional circuit were analysed through systematicobservation. The results showed a longer playing time (p <.001), number of lobs (p <.001) and less intensity ofthe game (p <.001) in female padel. These differences still exist depending on the point and game number. Inaddition, the playing time, rest time, number of shots per point and number of lobs is significantly higher in goldenpoints compared to the rest of the points (p = .000), with no differences depending on the number of games. Inconclusion, during golden points, there is a higher point duration and a higher number of lobs comparing with therest of the points, both in the male and female categories, not observing changes in the intensity of the game.
