What is Padel?

Padel is a mix between tennis and squash, and also has similarities to pickleball.

The sport is typically played as doubles on an enclosed court with glass walls. The court is about a third of the size of a tennis court. Scoring in Padel is the same as tennis (you must win two of three sets). Sets are played to 6, with a tiebreak played at 6-6.  Serves are made underhand and shots are made before or after the ball bounces off the surrounding walls. 

Right now, Padel is the fastest-growing racquet sport in the world. It is played in 78 different countries across the globe, taking the sports world by storm in Europe and Latin America, and just breaking into the United States!

Padel is easy to learn, and hard to master! Even in the early learning phases, you’re sure to get addicted!
