We went to try out Padel - the world's fastest-growing sport loved by Lionel Messi

  • last month
Decathlon, a sports store located in Stockport, partnered with Soul Padel to host a beginner-friendly introduction to the much talked about sport. The sport is described as a combination between squash and tennis. 

Originating in Mexico in the 1960s, the sport is usually played in doubles on an enclosed court which is one third of the size of a tennis court. The ball can bounce off of any wall but can only hit the turf once before being returned.
