Padel is a sport discipline that is rapidly gaining popularity around the world. It is a racquet sport that is played on a smaller court than a tennis court, with a lower net and walls that are used as part of the playing surface. Padel is a fun and exciting game that can be played by people of all ages and skill levels.

Padel is believed to have originated in Mexico in the 1960s, but it was in Spain where it gained popularity and became a mainstream sport. Today, it is played in more than 50 countries worldwide, with professional players competing in international tournaments.

The sport of padel is played with a racket and a rubber ball. The court is 20 meters long and 10 meters wide, with walls that are 3 meters high. The net is lower than a tennis net, at just 88 centimeters, which allows for more rallies and longer points. The game is played in doubles format, with each team consisting of two players.

One of the most unique aspects of padel is the fact that the walls are considered part of the playing surface. This means that players can use the walls to hit the ball and keep the ball in play. This makes for a fast-paced and exciting game, with lots of movement and strategy involved.

Padel is a great sport for anyone looking for a fun and social activity that also provides a good workout. The sport is relatively low-impact, which makes it a good choice for people with joint problems or other physical limitations. It also provides a good cardiovascular workout and helps to improve hand-eye coordination and reflexes.

The popularity of padel is on the rise, with more and more people discovering the sport and playing it for fun or competitively. There are now professional padel players who compete in international tournaments, and the sport is becoming more and more recognized as a legitimate discipline in the world of sports.

In June 2022, Marsa Sports Club launched a new page in its illustrious history when it inaugurated two padel courts, built to the highest standards and specifications.

This racquet sport has swept the island and became very popular. In its constant efforts to upgrade the club and offer more sporting facilities, MSC and the tennis committee, who also run the padel courts, felt it would be timely to provide its members with the opportunity to practice this new sport and therefore decided to invest in building the two  courts.
