Padel is a unique racket sport with its own identity and culture. You play padel on a padel court of 10 × 20 meters, surrounded by walls of glass and fencing. You play padel as a double, 2 against 2. In the middle there is a net and the score corresponds to that of tennis. The Dutch Padel Association is a representative of padel in the Netherlands and a member of the IPF. The sport breathes the Hispanic origin & temperament and padel players are friendly, social, full of passion and proud of padel.
