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).

HOW IT ALL STARTED

Officially founded in Mexico in the 1960s, it then took off almost over night throughout Argentina.

Padel then began to spread throughout the southern coast of Spain, and in 1993 the Sports Council of Spain recognised Padel as a sport whilst changing the spelling from it’s original “paddle” to ‘Padel’ for pronunciation purposes in the Spanish language.
