What is Padel Tennis?

A cross between tennis, squash and beach tennis, it is played in an enclosure of glass and chain link fence with a tennis net in the middle of the court.

Each rally starts with an underarm serve which makes the game easier to play than traditional tennis. The ball can rebound off the glass panels and be hit back in to play to give the opportunity for longer rallies and more fun. Padel appeals to all ages and abilities and is equally popular with all genders.

A padel racket is smaller than a tennis racket and the balls are slightly softer making it easier to hit the ball back over the net.

The scoring system is the same as tennis and the rules are the same with only one bounce allowed on the court surface.
