About Padel

Padel or Padel Tennis is best described as a cross between Tennis and Squash. It is on the brink of becoming the fastest-growing sport in the world! The fast-paced, social sport is easy to learn and suitable for all ages. 

Everything you need to know about playing Padel:

  • Preferably played in doubles

  • Court size: 20m long x 10m wide

  • Courts are typically blue, green or terracotta

  • Only requires a partner, two rackets and a ball

How to play Padel:
Rules of the sport

  • Before a match, a coin is tossed. The winner gets to choose whether to serve first or which end of the court to start on.

  • Each match begins with a serve, which must be done underarm but like tennis must go diagonally into the opponent's court.

  • Both teams must attempt to score more points than their opponents.

The opposition wins a point when any of the following occurs:

  • The ball bounces twice

  • The ball strikes you or a teammate

  • The ball hits the wire fencing or another fixture before going over the net or going into the opponent’s court (classed as out of bounds).

  • Matches are made up of 3 sets, with each set made up of six games. The winners of two out of the three sets will be declared winners of the Padel match.



Padel rackets have a solid impact surface that is filled with holes to allow an easy swing in the air. This surface may be hard or soft and will greatly determine the performance of the racket. A softer racket will have more elasticity to rebound the ball and provide more power to your shots. 



If you are new to the sport, it is best to choose a racket that is not too heavy. Padel rackets generally weigh between 330 and 385 grams. A lighter racket is easier to use and gives you more control of your strokes.
