Padel is relatively young sport, invented in Acapulco, in Mexico. In 1965 Don Enrique Corquera decided to build the tennis court on the small part of his land.
As he didn ´t have enough space and there were walls on the borders of the land, he decided to build the smaller court and integrate the walls into the court.
There was a wire fence on the sides of the land. The walls and the fence avoided the ball to go out of the court. Tha ball was always in the game.
