Even beginners can quickly get started
Padel court combines the characteristics of tennis, squash, badminton, etc. The ball is similar to ordinary tennis balls, but the padel court racket is very different from the ordinary tennis racket, the racket surface does not have cross-woven strings, but foam hard surface material, relatively weak elasticity, to better control the ball. The racket handle comes with a wrist strap, which must be put on when playing to prevent throwing out and ensure the safety of the sport.
