Padel Tennis at Prested Hall
Padel tennis is always played as doubles on an enclosed court 10 metres wide by 20 metres long. Scoring is the same as lawn tennis and the balls used are similar but with a little less pressure. The main differences are that the court has walls and the balls can be played off them in a similar way as in the game of squash, and that solid, plastic, stringless racquets are used.
The game was invented in Acapulco, Mexico, by Enrique Corcuera in 1969. It is currently most popular in Hispanic American countries such as Argentina and Mexico as well as in Spain, although it is now beginning to spread rapidly across Europe and other continents.
