Padel is typically played in doubles so it’s really funny to play this sport with friends or other people met for the occasion. Padel tennis, the longer name of this sport, is played in a very good friendly atmosphere.
You play on an enclosed court about half the size of a tennis court, scoring is the same as normal tennis and the balls used are similar but with a little less pressure, the main differences are that the court has walls and the balls can be played off them in a similar way as in the game of squash and that solid, stringless racquets are used.
For the history this sport was invented in Acapulco, Mexico, by Enrique Corcuera in 1969. It is currently most popular in Hispanic American countries such as Argentina and Mexico as well as in Spain, and Barcelona of course !
Although it is now beginning to spread rapidly across Europe and other continents.
