Rules of the game

Padel is a combination of tennis and squash. The game has been increasingly popular in Spain and Latin America. It is played as a double on a 20x10m court surrounded by a fence and a glass wall. So. Why padel? It is easier than tennis. At least, the basics are. Impressive rallies will begin right from the start of your first game…

The biggest difference with tennis and squash might just be the racket. The padel racket is made of plastic and has no strings. There are holes in the round racket blade, to avoid air resistance. And the little string at the bottom of the racket should be around your wrist to avoid you tossing it all over the court.

Adapted rules singles game
You play diagonally and you draw a line through half the field, as it were. This is quite easy to do: draw an imaginary line through the center line of the service compartment, all the way up to the rear glass wall. The normal rules of padel apply except for 1 important aspect!
If the ball bounces out of the field lines the first time (for example, just outside the center service line), but the ball would bounce back and bounce inside the field lines, it counts as a point.
You switch between diagonal as you would in tennis. After the first game, after the third, after the fifth, etc.
