What is Padel?

Padel is a racquet sport that combines the elements of tennis, squash and badminton. It is only played in doubles and is practiced outdoors as much as indoors.

The game was invented by Enrique Corcuera of Mexico, who created the first padel club in Marbella in 1974. Initially, the sport became very popular in Spain. Spain has hosted the World Padel Tour since 2005. Over the course of the past 10 years, padel has begun to spread rapidly to the rest of Europe and the United States.

Extremely fun, social and accessible for all, padel is a breath of fresh air that is revitalizing clubs with an activity complementary to tennis.
