History of the sport

The history of padel is not altogether clear, but it is said to have arisen in Mexico around the 1970s. Although it first arrived in Sweden back in 1998, the explosion in interest has only occurred in recent years. Padel is typically played in doubles teams and is described as a mixture between tennis and squash. The court comprises a net, two ‘ends’ and playable walls. Today, one thing is certain: the sport is constantly growing and attracting more and more people. This is probably because it is easy to learn and you play alongside others. Nothing less than socializing and training at the same time!
