The weather is so warm outside and it just keeps getting better and better! Why not start playing tennis and try some paddle tennis yourself? If you are like me you’ve probably heard of tennis, but are a little unsure about paddle. The sport paddle tennis apparently has increased in popularity and many sports clubs are now offering it to their members. The rules of paddle form are similar to regular tennis with a few exceptions such as the ball may be played off the screen and only a single serve is allowed with a let serve being considered legal. Scoring is also the same, but the equipment is better suited for cold weather. Also the racquets look much smaller and more solid with air holes than traditional tennis racquets.
You can play paddle tennis for between 10 to 15 euros in places such as Club de Pádel and Tenis Fuencarral. In the northern area of Madrid the Pádel Space Las Tablas – Centro Adequa is the perfect place for beginners and advanced players. They even offer classes depending on your skill level. There is also some paddle courts near Retiro called Centro Deportivo Municipal La Chopera, which have outdoor courts. Don’t get discouraged by the price, it is possible to play this sport for as little as 5 euros at some clubs.
Now, let’s not forget about playing tennis. Tennis is a sport that many people love to practice. It requires physical, mental, and technical endurance. There are several locations where you can play on different types of surfaces and take your hobby to a new level. Check them out below!
