EQUIPMENT

THE PADEL RACKET

The padel racket is a unique looking piece of equipment, completely different from anything you would have seen in the sports world. It could probably be compared to a high-tech beach bat and possibly even replace them.

It is made with a mixture of plastic composites, an inner foam core, and a carbon fibre frame. The face of the racket is pierced with holes to aid it in its movement through the air.

It is considerably smaller than a tennis and squash racket which means it is simpler to control, while the sweet spot is easier to find.

The Padel Ball

Although identical looking to a tennis ball, a padel ball does have a few key differences.

As padel is a game played in a smaller confined space the ball moves around a lot and therefore shouldn’t have too much bounce as it would then be too hard to control. Therefore the padel ball is slightly less pressurized to that of a tennis ball and is also a fraction smaller.

What this all means is that a padel ball will bounce between 135CM – 140CM when dropped from a height of 2,54M onto a hard surface, making it easy to control and play.
