Padel - an exciting new sport now in Saimaa


Padel can be played on the beautiful sun deck of Holiday Club Saimaa. In addition to the unique rooftop playing court, the sun deck also features a bar and a smoke sauna.

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.
