A hybrid of tennis, squash and beach racquet games, Padel has the best of several sports. It’s played in an indoor court surrounded by glass walls, with smaller carbon racquets that are easier to handle and absorb more impact. The biggest difference from other racquet games is the number of possible rebounds: a Padel ball can bounce anywhere on the court and there are no foul shots. So you’ll need to stay on your toes right the way through the game!
The Padel phenomenon
Born in Mexico in 1969 before making it to Europe by way of Spain, Padel has only hit the big time as a sport in the last ten years. David Lloyd Country Club Geneva is the first club in Switzerland to fit out three courts especially for this fast-growing racquet sport.
