The fastest growing racquet sport, PADEL combines elements of tennis, squash, racquetball, and platform tennis into one unique fast-moving game. It has been said that if tennis is checkers, Padel is chess - easy to learn and hard to master. Social, fun, competitive and addictive are all words used to describe the sport. Huge in Europe, 12 million players around the world with over 30,000 courts. Padel was virtually unheard of here in the USA, but has been building excitement and growing followers over the last several years, including the event that started it here in the Philadelphia area in 2019.
