WHAT IS PADEL
Padel, which is growing rapidly all over Europe, is played on an enclosed court about a third of the size of a tennis court. The rules are the same as tennis, played with the same balls, although serving is under-hand and the walls are used as part of the game.
WHO CAN PLAY
Padel is great for all ages; it’s not power dominant and caters to all levels of play. With limited racquet skills players can quickly engage in dynamic and fun rallies, utilising the court’s surroundings. Padel is always played in doubles, which makes it very social and therefore ideal for the entire family.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED
Tennis attire, omni court and/or clay court shoes, padel bats, and padel balls.
Note. Padel balls have slightly less pressure than the traditional tennis ball).
