What is Padel Tennis?

The sport is derived from tennis, and the name comes from the English word paddle, referring to the paddles players use during play.

Paddle Tennis is played mostly by doubles on a fenced court. The rules of paddle tennis are similar to regular tennis with a few exceptions. The ball may be played off the fence and only a single serve is allowed with a let serve being considered legal. Scoring is the same, but the equipment made from materials better suited for cold weather. The racquet is made from solid composite with air holes while the balls are sponge rubber.
