Padel originates in Spain, where it is even bigger than tennis and is the most played sport after soccer. Padel is a combination of tennis and squash. It’s 2 against 2 on a court surrounded by glass. These glass walls are part of the game. The technique is not difficult and this makes it an easy sport to learn! After 5 minutes, one can play rallies. Padel is a very spectacular sport: it’s fast, there’s a lot of action and the game is tactical!
