Admittedly, I only recently learned about padel. Here's the blurb from Wikipedia.
Padel (Spanish: pádel) is a racket sport typically played in doubles on an enclosed court slightly smaller than a doubles tennis court. Scoring is the same as normal tennis, and the balls used are similar but with a little less pressure. The main differences are that the court has walls and the balls can be played off them in a similar way as in the game of squash and that solid, stringless bats are used. The height of the ball being served must be at or below the waist level.
There's a professional padel league coming soon, and Toronto will have a franchise. Here's more about this league from the PPL (Pro Padel League).
The Pro Padel League is here and will be launching high octane, team competition in the world’s fastest growing sport.
Six cities will be awarded franchises for the inaugural 2023 season as teams compete for the PPL Cup.
The PPL is North America’s first professional padel league and is a ground floor opportunity for visionaries who want to be part of the next great sport.
New league, new podcast, and I'm proudly involved in the production. Get in on the ground floor and follow the PPL by subscribing to The PPL Podcast.
