What is Padel?
Padel is a mix of tennis and squash, a recreative sport that is growing in popularity worldwide. It's played in doubles on a court surrounded by glass. These glass walls are part of the game. The technique is not difficult and this makes it an easy sport to learn. It is both fun and dynamic.
Whale Tails will feature a professional oudoor padel court. The court will meet the requirements of major padel organizations: FEP, FIP, NPB, KNLTB.
