About Padel – Padel is a racquet sport that can be best defined as a combination of Tennis and Squash. Primarily played as doubles and in a similar format/scoring to tennis, a standard Padel court is one-third the size of a Tennis court (10m x 20m); balls used have a little less pressure than regular tennis balls and the racquets are stringless and perforated – similar looking to a beach bat. As one of the fastest growing sports in the world, Padel offers players a unique and exciting social or competitive experience.
How to Play -
Typically played by 4 players but single options are also possible on the courts.
All serves are underhand with 2 attempts per serve.
Serves are only allowed to touch the glass walls after their bounce. If they hit the side metal mesh walls then it is a fault.
If from a serve the ball touches the net cord and lands in the correct area, then a let is played - otherwise it is a fault – same as in tennis.
The ball must hit the ground first before it touches the walls. If it hits any wall without a bounce then it is considered out of play.
The opposing team can immediately return the serve before the ball hits the ground.
Players can use their own walls to return the serve or any shot in a rally.
Scoring is in the same format as tennis.
Each match is 6 games per set with the winners being the first team to win 2 sets.
