Padel Tennis Courts in London

What’s padel tennis? Padel is essentially a hybrid of tennis and squash, played on a smaller version of a tennis court with rebound boards on every side to allow the ball to bounce off and still be in play. Padel tennis originated in Mexico in 1969 and has since grown in popularity across South America and Spain, and now in the UK. It’s billed as a more accessible version of tennis, suitable for beginners and pros alike, and is most often played in doubles which brings a social aspect to the game.

Padel tennis is most often played on a sand-based astroturf court, but can also be played on hard (macadam) or synthetic rubber. Padel tennis rackets are a lot sturdier than regular tennis rackets, with perforated holes instead of strings and a short handle, making it more compact. The ball is also bigger and heavier than a standard tennis ball which makes it easier to hit and extend rallies.
