What Is The Difference Between Padel And Tennis?


What Is The Difference Between Padel And Tennis


The first thing you’ll notice about Padel is its racket – this is one of the main differences between tennis and Padel. Padel rackets are made of fiberglass or carbon fiber while regular tennis rackets have a slightly larger head with strings. Padel balls and tennis balls are made with the same materials and look the same externally, with the main difference being the internal pressure of the balls. The padel court is smaller than a tennis court, approximately one-third of the size or 25% smaller. Unlike tennis courts, it is enclosed by walls and a wire mesh fence with a net in the center. Padel courts are also surrounded by glass or walls, which you can use to bounce your padel ball off.

When it comes to the game rules, both Padel and tennis have their separate strategy and end-game or goal, but they do share the same scoring system.
