Padel courts Uccle ready

The padel courts are ready at the Royal Uccle Sport - tennis and hockey club in Belgium. Padel tennis is winning in popularity fast. It has elements from tennis as well as from squash. It is played with solid, hole-punched rackets on a small court – and players can use the walls. That makes for a fast sport with a lot of net games. Faster than tennis, not as intense as squash and highly popular in Latin America and Spain, where more people play padel than they do tennis. Padel is growing and from an operator’s perspective, it offers interesting possibilities. The courts are small and the game is played exclusively as a doubles game, so more people per square meter are active than they are in tennis.
