What is Badel?
A mixture of tennis and squash, the padel has its origins in Mexico and is very popular in Latin America and Spain. The artificial turf path is ten meters wide and twenty meters long, surrounded by a cage of fences and glass walls. Padel is usually played two-on-two, which makes it a fun and sociable sport. It is a dynamic sport due to the small playing area and because the ball can be played back into the opponent’s court through the wall. In this way, players can use a lot of creativity in the game. If the ball passes by a player, the player always has a second chance to return the ball through the wall. Therefore, the marches are often longer which makes the game more fun. Curious?
