When to build a padel court
From Mexico to Båstad
The sport was invented in Mexico in the late 1960s and quickly became big in the Spanish-speaking world. The name padel, which is Spanish for paddle, is given to the sport after the paddle-shaped racket. A padelcourt measures 10 times 20 m and is surrounded by glass walls that you can wall the ball against. Padel balls are very similar to tennis balls but with a little less pressure. The points system also comes from tennis, but you always play doubles. Sweden’s first permanent padel court was built in Båstad in 2008.
