Why you should start playing padel

As you may already know, padel now has millions of fans around the world. So what are you waiting for? Join the movement today!

Padel was created in 1969 by Mexican entrepreneur Enrique Corcuera. Tired of losing his tennis balls in his garden, he built some walls around his tennis court. Little did he know that he had just invented the sport of the 21st century!

Padel is accessible

One of the reasons why padel is experiencing a boom almost everywhere is because it is accessible. Even if you have never played a racket sport before, you can instantly enjoy the game and feel good sensations thanks to the comfortable rackets. Since it is played on a small court and 2 vs 2, you do not need to be an athlete to have a good time. Furthermore, if you have played tennis or any other racket sport, you will immediately notice the excellent ball contact.

Padel is fun

Padel is also a fun team sport that allows you to share good moments with three friends. The walls, fences, and unpredictable bounces make the game even more exciting.

Padel is good for your body

In addition to being fun, padel is great for improving your overall fitness, including your cardio and athleticism. All the defensive shots will help build your lower body, such as the jumps and back-and-forth rallies.

Now that you are convinced that padel is the perfect sport for you, let's see what you need to start having fun on the court!

What you need to start playing

To start playing padel, you will need balls and a good racket. You will find different models on our site, whether you are an offensive or defensive player.
