ADVICE ON PADEL COURT CONSTRUCTION IN THE UNITED KINGDOM AND EUROPE
HOW TO PLAY PADEL
As a game, it is very similar to tennis, however there are some slight differences. Played only in doubles, it is also played on an enclosed court that is significantly smaller than a tennis court and has walls that can be used during the game. However, the balls used are almost identical (although with slightly less pressure) and the scoring system is the same.
Padel matches should be played on a regulation Padel court that is 20m x 10m and is blue, green or terracotta.
Padel games are played between two pairs of players using regulation Padel racquets. Before a match, a coin is tossed.
The winner gets to choose whether to serve first or which end of the court to start on. Each match begins with a serve, which must be done underarm but like tennis must go diagonally into the opponent’s court. Both teams must attempt to score more points than their opponents. The opposition wins a point when any of the following occurs:
-The ball bounces twice
-The ball strikes you or a teammate
-The ball hits the wire fencing or another fixture before going over the net or going into the opponent’s court (classed as out of bounds).
Matches are made up of 3 sets, with each set made up of six games. The winners of two out of the three sets will be declared winners of the Padel match.
