Padel and Pickleball

Padel
Padel is a unique sport that combines the best elements of tennis, racquetball, and squash while eliminating the frustrating aspects of those three sports. Padel is played by four players in teams of two. The scoring is the same as in tennis. Play begins when the serving team serves the ball underhanded into the service box of the receiving team. After the return the ball can be volleyed, smashed or ground stroked. After the ball is struck it must travel over the net and hit the court surface. Once the ball hits the court surface players can opt to let the ball bounce against back walls, sidewalls, or the side wire fence and then play it back across the net. The players have two chances to hit the ball, one before the ball reaches the walls/fences and one after the ball bounces off the walls/fences surrounding the Padel court. 

The Houstonian Club is home to the United States Padel Team, currently ranked 8th in the world. Private and group lessons are available for all levels. The club has two international Padel courts that are lighted and have a synthetic grass surface.
