Can padel be played in pairs?
Padel is played as a doubles sport. When playing 1 vs. 1 on a normal padel court, the game is played cross-court. This allows for intense rallies, as the court is too large for a single person. Playing padel 1 vs. 1 is a good way to improve technique, since you must hit all the balls by yourself. This gives you more opportunity to practice and refine different hitting techniques.
Is padel played with a tennis ball?
No. A padel ball is slightly smaller and has a lower bounce due to the lower air pressure.
