Padel is a sport which combines action with fun and social interaction. It’s a great sport for players of all ages and skills, as it is both quick and easy to pick up. Most players get the basics within the first half an hour of playing so that they can enjoy the game.
Using a short, stringless racquet with an elastic surface with holes and a low compression tennis ball, the service is made underarm. Shots are played either before or after the ball bounces off the surrounding glass walls, adding a unique dimension to the sport over conventional tennis.
Padel is not as dominated by strength, technique and serve as it happens in Tennis and therefore is an ideal game for men, women and youth to compete together. An important skill is match-craft, as points are won rather by strategy than by sheer strength and power.

OUR PADEL COURTS
Padel is a mix between Tennis and Squash. It’s usually played in doubles on an enclosed court surrounded by walls of glass and metallic mash. The court is one third of the size of a tennis court. The ball can bounce off any wall but can only hit the turf once before being returned. Points can be scored when the ball does bounce twice in the competitors’ field.
Our Miami padel club features 3 of America's newest and the most technologically advanced, aluminum padel courts constructed by All Racquet Sports USA. The courts feature aluminum exclusive profiles, 10mm toughened glass, LED lighting, AFP Turf minofibre, and are the first of their kind to be constructed in the United States.
