Tennis with a Twist Comes to Dubai
Looking for a change from conventional games? Welcome to Dubai another variation of tennis: Padel Tennis, a combination of Tennis and Squash, is the fastest growing sport in the world. Relatively recent, it has around 10 million players in the world, including big Tennis names such as Rafael Nadal and Novack Djokovic.
Played in a glass-walled court with artificial glass and net-less racquets, this game is a social sport for doubles. At Emirates Golf Club, three dedicated Padel Tennis Courts have been set up, which are open to both members and non-members. A Padel Tennis expert is also available at hand to coach you if you want coaching hours. So go ahead, get your head in the game!
