About Padel

Discover padel, the world's fastest growing sport


Padel is a thrilling racquet sport that combines the best elements of tennis and squash, offering an accessible experience for players of all ages and skill levels.

Rules and Gameplay

Padel is played in doubles format. The game follows similar scoring rules to tennis, with points awarded as 15, 30, 40, and game. The court is surrounded by glass and mesh that the ball can rebound off (after bouncing) and still be played, adding excitement to the game.

Court and Equipment

Padel is played on a court that measures 20 meters in length and 10 meters in width. The smaller court and closer proximity makes the game more social than tennis. The court is enclosed by glass walls and a wire fence, allowing players to use the walls to keep the ball in play. The equipment required for padel includes a padel racket, which is solid and perforated, and a padel ball, which is similar to a tennis ball but slightly less pressurized.

Accessibility and Popularity

One of the key reasons for padel's popularity is its accessibility. The sport is relatively easy to learn, making it appealing to beginners, while still offering room for skill development and strategic play. Padel can be played by people of all ages and fitness levels, as the smaller court size and use of walls minimize the need for excessive running. Additionally, the social aspect of playing in doubles creates a fun and engaging experience for participants.
