Rules of Padel


  • Scoring is exactly the same as tennis!


  • The opposition will win the point if: the ball bounces twice on your side, the ball strikes you when in play, you hit the ball into the wall on your opponents side before it hits the ground on their side.

  • If the ball hits the wire fencing above the wall at any point, this is out.

  • You may play off the wall on your side

  • You may volley (except on receiving service)

  • To serve:

    • must be underarm and diagonally (as in tennis)

    • the server must allow the ball to bounce once before hitting it

    • the server must not cross the service line

    • the server must have one foot on the ground at all times
