Padel, also known as paddle tennis, is a modern, dynamic racquet sport that is becoming ever more popular with fans around the world.
It is a sport which combines action with fun and social interaction. It’s a great sport for players of all ages and skills, as it is both quick and easy to pick up. Most players get the basics within the first half an hour of playing so that they can enjoy the game.
Padel is not as dominated by strength, technique and serve as it happens in Tennis and therefore is an ideal game for men, women and youth to compete together. An important skill is match-craft, as points are won rather by strategy than by sheer strength and power. This sport was invented in Mexico in 1969 by Enrique Corcuera when he modified his squash court to welcome elements of platform tennis. In the 1970s, a Spanish friend of Corcuera brought the padel sport to Spain where it is now considered one of the most popular sports in the country. Other countries where padel sport is a hit include Mexico, Argentina, the UK, and the USA. It is a relatively new sport, which was developed specifically to be played over a small area, meaning padel courts can easily fit into the architecture of major cities. Currently, interest in this sporting discipline is growing all over the world. Padel courts are springing up around the globe, and the Padel World Championships and Padel European Championships are open to all age groups.
The World Padel Tour is held annually and features some of the best padel players from around the world competing for glory and prize money.
