WHAT IS PADEL?
The sport originated in 1969 in the Mexican beach resort of Acapulco. The founder of padel, Enrique Corcuera, was a wealthy businessman. At home, he didn’t have enough space to put in a tennis court, so he came up with a similar sport, played on a court that was 10 x 20 m in size and surrounded by 3-4 m high walls. A net divided the court into two equal sides. Because of the smaller playing field, he decided to play with wooden rackets that were smaller than traditional tennis rackets.
HOW DO YOU PLAY PADEL?
It’s played on an enclosed court measuring 10m x 20m with glass walls and is a mixture of tennis, squash and beach tennis. Four people play the game in a doubles format with a tennis scoring system. It’s a faster moving game than regular tennis and is said to be much easier to play, suitable for all ages and abilities. Each rally begins with an underarm serve and the bats are shorter versions of a tennis racket – made with fibreglass or carbon and soft foam with no strings.
