Padel, Paddle, Tennis?
A lot of people are confused about the name of the game.
Its origins are in Mexico and the game was developed and introduced further in Spain and Argentina, therefor we take a look at The Dictionary of the Spanish Language, and find the word pádel.
In the Netherlands they stress a different syllable, resulting in: padèl.

That is why we prefer to use the Spanish name; pádel, with emphasis on the first syllable of the word. Do you wish to learn more about the game? Come and join us! We can show you all about the rules, the field position, the basic techniques and a lot more!
