About

Padel is a Racquet Sport played with a Tennis-Racquet sized Paddle (as in Table Tennis) hence the name. It is played on a court resembling a Tennis court with a net and fences surrounding the playing area which come right up to the playing area. When the ball hits the fence and bounces back it is still in play. Hitting and serving is underarm.
