Padel at Jersey Squash & Racketball Club
From July 2020, the JSRC has taken on the administration of Padel at the St Clements Golf & Sports Centre meaning all leagues, tournaments, group sessions and coaching will be managed by the JSRC. This arrangement benefits JSRC members as they will receive reduced rates for these sessions and tournaments, and will also receive a discount when entering the leagues if done as part of their membership. If you are interested in joining the league please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or alternatively you can click the link below to go to the league's facebook page.
What is Padel?
Padel is a rapidly growing sport across Europe, it is played on an enclosed court about a third of the size of a tennis court. The rules are the same as tennis, played with similar balls, although serving is under-hand and the walls are used as part of the game.
Who can play?
Padel is great for all ages; it’s not power dominant and caters to all levels of play. With limited racket skills players can quickly engage in dynamic and fun rallies, utilising the court’s surroundings. Padel is always played in doubles, which makes it a very social activity and therefore ideal for the entire family.
What equipment do I need to play?
Comfortable and breathable sportswear is recommended for when playing Padel, as well as clay court or omni court trainers. Visit PadelShack to find the right kit for you.
You will also need padel bats and padel balls which have slightly less pressure than the traditional tennis ball. This equipment is usually available to hire at Padel venues.
What are the rules?
Padel scoring is the same as tennis and is easy to pick up. The ball must bounce on the ground before it hits any of the surrounding walls, however players can volley and smash the ball. The lines are only used for the serve and then the ball can land anywhere in the court.
