Padel Tennis is a sport that combines action with lots of fun and social interaction. It’s an excellent sport for players of all ages and skills, as it is both quick and easy to pick up. Most new players understand the basics within the first half an hour, therefore beginners can quickly enjoy playing. Did you know that Padel Tennis first originated in Acapulco? A Mexican businessman named Enrique Corcuera, set-up the first-ever padel court at his home in 1969.
A fast-paced fun game, that is a mixture of both tennis and squash. Padel is played on a court 10 metres wide by 20 metres in length – roughly one third of the size of a standard tennis court. It’s usually played in doubles on an enclosed court surrounded by walls of glass and metallic mesh.
At Aphrodite Hill Resort we are very proud to boast the first-ever Padel Courts in Cyprus. The two Padel Courts will give the Aphrodite Hills Tennis Academy a new dimension.
