The success of padel in the UK has skyrocketed in a very short timeframe. The sport has even seen famous celebrities playing padel, including Andy Murray and Peter Crouch most recently. As the sport continues to grow, as does the number of padel equipment retailers. Padel enthusiasts have a wide variety of options when it comes to accessories for playing padel. 

Padel balls are often perceived as the same as tennis balls, but in fact, they differ in regards to their pressure. The balls used for padel can be slightly larger than tennis balls, although the difference is very minor. Tennis balls generally have a diameter of somewhere between 6.54 and 7.30 cm, whilst padel balls are usually between 6.35 and 6.77 cm. In some cases, the balls are of different sizes but not all of the time. The pressure in a padel ball is also usually less than that of a tennis ball, which is why balls used for padel tend to bounce less. There are balls for beginners as well as other varieties for more experienced padel players, so it is important to find the right equipment for you, especially as each game of padel requires three balls throughout the match.

When it comes to padel – speed is everything. That’s why in this article we will explore some of the best padel balls for speed – we know it is important to find the best equipment for playing padel out there so that you and your match partner can be sure you have the fastest padel ball available.
