About Padel

Padel Tennis is a unique sport that blends elements of tennis and squash. It is played on a court that is approximately 20 meters long and 10 meters wide, enclosed by glass walls and metal mesh fencing. The court is divided into two halves by a net, similar to tennis. The objective of Padel Tennis is to hit the ball over the net, aiming to make it bounce in the opponent's half without them being able to return it. The scoring system is the same as in tennis, with players or teams trying to win points to ultimately win games, sets, and matches.

  • Here are some fundamental rules of Padel Tennis:
  • Serve: The server must stand behind the baseline and hit the ball diagonally into the opponent's service box, aiming for a successful serve. The ball must bounce once on the ground before the receiver can return it.
  • Scoring: Padel Tennis uses the same scoring system as tennis. The points go 15, 30, 40, and the game point. If the score reaches 40-40 (known as deuce), the next point determines the advantage. If the same player wins the next point, they win the game. If they lose the point, it goes back to deuce.
  • Let: If a served ball touches the net and lands in the correct service box, it is called a let, and the server gets another chance to serve without losing a point.
  • Double Bounce Rule: After the serve, both teams must let the ball bounce once on their side before hitting it. Afterward, players can either volley the ball (hitting it before it bounces) or let it bounce once before returning it.
  • Out of Bounds: If the ball hits any part of the metal mesh fencing or glass walls without bouncing in the opponent's half, it is considered out of bounds, and the opposing team is awarded a point.
  • Playing the Ball: Players must let the ball bounce on their side before returning it. They can hit the ball against the walls, but it must be returned before the second bounce.
  • Ball in Play: The ball remains in play until it touches any of the metal mesh fencing or glass walls outside the court boundaries, or if a player hits it out of bounds.
  • Serve Rotation: In doubles play, each player takes turns serving, alternating sides after every game.

Padel tennis or “padel” as it is more often called, is a great new addition to racquet sports. It is easier to learn than tennis and you don't need to be as fit as you the court is smaller. You don't need to choose one sport over the other but can obviously play and excel at both.
