What is Padel?

Padel is Europe’s fastest-growing sport. It is a mix between tennis and squash and is easy to play. It comprises mainly a doubles format on an enclosed court about 25% smaller than a tennis court and can be played in groups of mixed ages and abilities.

The rules are broadly the same as tennis, although you serve underarm, and the walls are used as part of the game, with the ball allowed to bounce off them.  Rackets are very different to ordinary tennis rackets, stringless, much thicker and shorter and with holes.

The game is less dominated by strength, technique and serves as it is in tennis and therefore is ideal for men, women and youth to compete together.  Skill is match-craft, as points are won by strategy rather than sheer strength and power.

Padel Box League!

We have now had two very successful months running Padel boxes and the September draw has increased to 7 boxes.
There is however still room for more so if you have a willing partner please let us know and we can add you to next month’s competition.  If, on the other hand, you would like to play and don’t have a partner and you feel comfortable with us pairing you with an appropriate player please also let us know.

If you could approximate your playing ability using the following key we will do our best to set something up for you.
1 – Beginner with some consistency at a slow pace.
2 – Consistent player at a medium pace, however shots lack direction.
3 – Building confidence as a medium pace player and consistent at a medium pace.
4 – Player has control and pace. Previous racket skills generally fall into this category.
