What is a padel facility anyway?
Padel is a racket sport that combines elements of tennis and squash. It is mostly played in doubles on a rectangular court surrounded by walls or glass walls that can be actively involved in the game.
A padel facility usually consists of:
1. the padel court measures 20m in length and 10m in width. Compared to tennis, it has no tramlines.
A net divides the playing field into two halves. It is similar to the tennis net, but slightly lower.
3. the rear and side boundaries of the field are made of walls. In many facilities, these walls are a combination of masonry and glass so that spectators can easily follow the game. The walls are actively involved in the game as the ball is allowed to bounce off them after hitting the ground and can then be played on, similar to squash.
4. the balls for padel are very similar to tennis, but slightly softer. The rackets are solid (without strings) and have holes.
Padel is particularly popular in Spain and Latin America, but its popularity is spreading to other parts of the world. It is known for its social element, as it is often played in clubs with a relaxed atmosphere and is accessible to players of all ages and abilities.
