What is Padel?

Padel’s an innovative form of tennis that’s fun, easy to learn and extremely sociable. Played on an enclosed court about a third the size of a tennis court, groups of mixed ages and abilities can play together.

Who can play Padel?

There’s a reason why it’s one of the fastest growing sports in the world – it’s easy to pick up and much more difficult to put down. No matter your age or ability, everyone is welcome on the padel court. 

You don’t have to have played tennis – or any other sport before – just grab a bat, a doubles partner, and away you go! 

Padel vs Tennis

A padel court has walls, so your shots can be played off them – like in squash – to find wicked angles and creative shots to beat your opponents. As a bonus, you can even bounce the ball off a wall on your own side of the court – if you can get it to land on the other side of the court.

The Padel Court

Padel courts are designed for four players and are roughly 25% smaller than the size of a tennis court. The speed of the game, combined with the smaller size of a padel court, makes singles play difficult, and most padel matches are played as doubles.
