What is Padel?
Padel is very similar to tennis, all courts are standardized, roughly 33 by 66 feet, so about a third the size of a tennis court, and it’s the same scoring as tennis but I would say 99% of the play is doubles play.
You start with an underhand serve. After you serve, the ball has to bounce onto the turf and you can play off the walls and play off the side.
If tennis is checkers, Padel is chess. It’s really a thinking person sport, but the great thing about Padel, it is easy to learn and hard to master. That means that people who various levels can go out and play and have fun right away, but it’s hard to master.
Padel is played in 78 different countries around the world, thirty thousand courts around the world, with 35 different international federations.
