    How it started

    Padel is a young sport. It was created in 1969 in Mexico by a man who didn’t have enough space in his garden for a tennis court. He marked off an area of 10 by 20 meters with 3 to 4 meter high walls. And so the first padel court was born. From Mexico, padel later spread to Spain, to Marbella. In 1974 the first European padel club was founded, in Marbella. With the promotion of King Juan Carlos, the popularity of the sport was increased nationally. The first World Championship was held in Seville in 1992 and has since taken place every two years, with tens of thousands of spectators.
