Padel, which is not yet well-known in Finland, borrows elements from both tennis and squash and combines exercise and shared fun. Padel is typically played in doubles but can also be played in singles. In Saimaa it is easy for the whole family to learn more about padel. Racquets and balls can be rented from the kiosk beside the court.

Padel is a game that is quick and easy to pick up. The simple rules can be learned quickly, and the racquet is easy to handle thanks to its short shaft. Physical strength does not play a large role in padel like it does in tennis, but good technique and eye for the game will take you far. That is why players of different skill levels can easily play together.

How to play padel

Padel scoring is the same that is used in tennis, i.e. 15, 30, 40, and game. In case of deuce at 40–40, two clear points need to be won before the game is over. Padel game is won from the best of three sets, which are played to six games. At 6–6, a tiebreak is played, which is the first side to seven points with two clear points between the sides.
 

Doubles (2+2)

  • Playing area: serves must hit the service box, after which the entire court can be used.
  • Serves (2 opportunities) are underarm. The server’s feet must be behind the service line. The ball is dropped on the floor behind the service line. The ball must be hit at or below waist-level and fly clear of the net directly into the opponent’s service box diagonally opposite.
  • The serve must bounce before it can be returned – it cannot be volleyed.
  • The ball must not hit the net on the first serve, but after that it can.
  • After the serve, the ball can be volleyed and bounced from the glass walls on the player’s own side.
