Do you want to give your staff or clients an alternative to the usual team building or client entertainment days? Then why not try padel tennis
Padel tennis is a sport that is very easy to get involved in, it is fast, fun and easy to learn. It is typically played as doubles on an enclosed court a third the size of a tennis court. Padel tennis scoring is the same as normal tennis and the game is played with tennis balls over a slightly lower net than in tennis. The main differences are that the court is partly enclosed by glass walls and the balls can be played off them in a similar way to squash and that solid, stringless paddles are used.
Padel tennis is not too demanding technically nor is it dominated by strength and serve as in tennis, in fact the serve is under-arm. It is team sport played as doubles and is a very social game for all ages and abilities. The rules are simple and most players get the grasp of the game within the first 20 minutes of playing.
There are currently about 40 venues and over 70 padel courts in the UK & Ireland and this number is expected to grow dramatically.
