Padel originated in Mexico during the ‘70s.
Enrique Corcuera built a tennis court in his holiday home but he did not have sufficient space in his courtyard, so he decided to exploit the adjacent walls to bounce off the ball on them. He obtained something new, which was not tennis or squash: It was something better: the Padel.
Padel became quickly very popular in Spain and Argentina. And now is the fastest growing sport in the world.
