The Game. The Court. The Padel.
- The Game – Padel is an ideal sport for all ages and all abilities. Because the game is played in
doubles, it is ideal for families as can easily be played with mixed skill levels. As a player’s skill
improves, the game becomes more technically challenging and faster paced. Match-craft is an
important skill of the game and points are won by strategy rather than strength and power.
- The Court – A 10m x 20m (10.93yds x 21.87yds) rectangular space enclosed by glass & mesh
walls. A central net divides the AstroTurf court in two. The court is marked out with white lines
which act as the service box similar to that of tennis.
- The Padel – Is a short-handled stringless racquet (only 18inches long)
with a cushioned grip. The outer shell is made of carbon composites,
fiberglass and plastic with a concealed foam core.
