WHAT IS PADEL?

What is Padel?

COURT AND RULES

Padel is played in doubles on an enclosed court surrounded by walls of glass and metallic fence. The court's dimension is 20mx10m. The ball used is very similar to a tennis ball, just a bit softer.

 

The serve is underarm with a bounce and has to land in the service box. The ball has to hit the court first to be "in" but it can then bounce off any wall or fence. Points can be scored when the ball bounces twice in the opposition's side. Scoring is the same as tennis.
