What is Padel?
Before you get into the swing of things, it is important to know the basics of this newfound sport. Linked to similar sports of tennis and squash it uses similar aspects of low physical activity and aims to score much like a tennis match. An added bonus of padel is that it is played with an underarm serve as opposed to an overhead serve meaning the ball travels lower velocity all in all requiring much less physical strain that may occur in other sports.
An advocate for inclusivity, players of a wide range in mobility are able to join in on the fun making a great sport for families. Played with 4 members and only using a third of the space required for tennis means more people than ever can get in on the action.
