What Is Padel?
Padel is a mix between Tennis and Squash and most commonly played in doubles. Courts are enclosed, surrounded by walls of glass and metal mesh and the scoring is the same as in a game of tennis.
One of the main advantages of Padel is that it can be easily played in groups of mixed ages and abilities.
The rules are broadly the same as tennis, although you serve underarm and the walls are used as part of the game with the ball allowed to bounce off them.
The rackets are very different to a normal tennis racket, being stringless, much thicker and shorter and with holes.
Most new players can pick up the basics within half an hour and find it easy to build up a good level of skill to enjoy the game.
