This new and exciting sport of Padel has arrived in Middlesbrough!
The game is a cross between Squash and Tennis but much easier to learn how to play, in fact most people learn how to play in just 20 minutes!
The game is normally played with 4 players but you can play with 2 or 3. It starts with an underarm serve cross court using a foam based bat slightly larger than that used intable tennis with a ball similar to that used in Lawn Tennis
You can hit off the ground volley and smash the same as tennis but the ball can come of the glass walls or fence and still be in play making the game great fun.
As the game is played in a relatively small area controlling the ball is much easier, the rallies longer making the game much more sociable
