Give it a go!

I absolutely loved my first ever padel tennis experience. I thought the club was extremely welcoming and friendly. The instructor, Nick, seemed genuinely interested in sharing the game with us. I was impressed at how supportive he was and he kept us smiling and laughing the whole time. He taught at a good pace and had a great sense of humour which made the experience very enjoyable. I would highly recommend anyone to go along and try it ... Even if they are scared of a flying ball! Written by Oana Colceriu.(Sweaty Betty)

I thoroughly enjoyed my PADEL tennis experience. The staff were very encouraging and patient with us. They took time to explain moves to us and we practiced volleying, serving and backhand. Nothing was too much trouble and the game was very easy to pick up, making me feel that I had actually improved over the course of the lesson. I would recommend this to friends . I didn't want to leave the court after our game as I was having so much fun!!!! Written by Allison Gibson (Boutique Manager, Sweaty Betty)

Padel Tennis -The Basics

Format:

All play in the sport of Padel is doubles format.

Scoring:

In the sport of Padel, the same scoring system is used as in the sport of tennis.

Service:

• In Padel, all play begins with an underhand serve from the right service court into the opponent's court diagonally across similar to tennis.

• The server must allow the ball to bounce once before hitting it and the ball must be hit below waist level.

• The serve must land in the opponent's service box. If the ball bounces in the service box and strikes the side or back wall, it is a valid serve and must be played by the opposing player. If the ball lands in the service box and hits the wire fencing, it is considered a fault.

• The server must keep at least one foot on the ground when hitting the serve. The server's feet may not touch or cross the service line while serving.

• In Padel, similar to tennis, the server has two opportunities to complete the serve.

Fair Play:

The following are considered fair play situations in the sport of Padel:

• The court lines are considered in play only during the initial serve. Otherwise, they are not a factor in determining the outcome of each point in the game between opposing players.

• All players are permitted to play a ball off any of the walls on their own side of the court.

Loss of Point:

The opposition wins a point when any of the following events occur:

• The ball bounces twice in any area on your side of the court.

• The ball strikes you or your teammate while in play.

• The ball hits the wire fencing, posts or any other fixture before going over the net or landing on the opponent's court.

Out of Bounds:

The ball is considered out of bounds and a point is given to the opposing players if the ball hits the wire fence or walls before bouncing on the opponent's side of the court.

Overhand Strokes:

The ball can be taken out of the air by any player except on the initial serve and the return of serve.

What is Padel?

What is Padel? Best described as Tennis Squash X, it's a great leveller by removing the advantage of the technical overhand service and allowing players to use the surrounding walls enabling players of very different ages and abilities to play together. Tennis players love it, Squash players love it.  
The game is scored like tennis and uses a decompressed tennis ball and padel bats. Here's how the pro's do it
