Padel is a racquet sport played extensively in Southern Europe and Latin America. It is played on courts about half the size of a tennis court. The balls used and the scoring is the same as tennis.

The biggest difference is that the court has walls and the balls can be played off them in a similar way as in the game of squash. Contrary to other sports, the past decades no significant developments in quality or playability of padel systems have been made.
