WHAT IS PADEL?

Padel is a racket sport that combines elements of tennis, squash. It is a fun, sociable and very accessible game as players of all ages and abilities will get the basics of the game within the first half an hour of playing.

Strategy is more important than power and strength in padel therefore physical abilities do not guarantee a win!

HISTORY

Enrique Corcuera in 1969 decided to adapt his Squash court at his home in Acapulco (Mexico) with elements of Platform Tennis creating what he called "Paddle Corcuera". He is considered the inventor of Padel.

Enrique's Spanish friend Alfonso of Hohenlohe-Langenburg tried this new invention at Enrique's home and instantly felt in love. Immediately after, he decided to create the first two Padel courts in a Tennis club in Marbella (Spain), this was 1974.
