Although padel was created and played primarily in Spain in its early years, the sport has been making waves in Qatar where there are now plenty of padel courts and places to play. Although the main sport of interest in the nation is football, there are an estimated 5000 padel players who regularly play the sport in the country, and there are three major padel companies based in Qatar. Lovers of padel may be aware that it’s not always easy to get space on a court when compared to tennis, due to either a lack of nearby courts or due to them being fully booked up.
Luckily, the popularity of the sport in Qatar means that there are excellent padel facilities in its main cities of Doha, Dukhan, Al Khor and Al Wakrah. Although, due to Doha’s relative size, you’re most likely to be able to find a padel court there. If you’re keen on a padel game and you’re living in Qatar, or if you’re just visiting, use this guide to help you locate the best padel courts in the area and you’ll be rallying in no time.
