About Padel Tennis
Padel is usually played in doubles on an enclosed court about 25% smaller than the size of a tennis court. The score is the same as in normal tennis and the balls used are similar but with a little less pressure. The main differences are that the field has walls and the balls can be played in the same way as in the game of squash and strong, cordless bats are used. The height of the served ball must be equal to or less than the waist level.
