Padel in Spain
Padel is not as well known in UK as in Spain, but it has become a very popular sport among expats in Spain. Padel originated in Mexico and is most prevalent in Mexico, Argentina and Spain, but is gaining popularity in all of Europe.
Padel is played on a court that is one-third the size of a tennis court and the pitch has walls that can be used in ball exchanges in the same manner as in squash. The padel rackets do not have strings and the balls look like tennis balls, but are a bit softer. The most common is to play with four players on a court. In all spanish resort towns there are padel courts and padel clubs.
