It is easy to see why padel is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world – it is a fun and social racket sport that is suitable for all ages and abilities. Best described as a cross between tennis and squash padel doesn’t require players to have prior experience and is fun from the very first time you play. The game is played on a court that is similar to a tennis court but with walls or fences that allow players to hit shots off the surfaces to keep the ball in play. It’s a relatively fast-paced game, so expect to work up a good sweat while running around the court. Ricochet Padel is a great place to try padel, as it offers excellent facilities as well as comprehensive lessons conducted by a certified padel coach. Intermediate players looking to improve their technique and game can consider registering for a padel clinic which will provide advanced strategies and real match scenarios. Richochet Padel currently has two clubs, located at Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa and at Laguna National Golf Resort Club.
