Why is Padel winning over all ages of people all across the world?
Let’s figure out:
Padel has a sizable following. It was only recently discovered and has gained so much popularity that there is even discussion of it becoming an Olympic sport.
Its appeal stems from a few specific factors:
- Playing is enjoyable
- Four individuals participate in it.
- Understanding is simple.
- It has numerous advantages for both the body and mind.
This cardiovascular activity is ideal for boosting muscle tone, burning calories, and strengthening several different body regions, including the arms, shoulders, and lower back.
It is less physically taxing than sports like tennis because it doesn’t call for forceful or violent body motions, making it appropriate for participants of all ages, from kids to seniors.
Progress of Padel
This sport has grown astonishingly across Europe and has continued to do so. The number of fans who have made it their love to both watch and play has grown along with the number of players.
Padel was introduced to the public in 1974, but it was in the 1990s that it rose to prominence and became a professional sport. Although there were more than 39,700 federated players in 2012, the sport’s peak popularity came in 2020, when there were more than 1,800 padel centers.
We at Testa have incorporated this sport into our daily lives and homes because we are also fans. All inhabitants can participate in tournaments and friendly matches on padel courts like those at La Safor, Conde Orgaz, and Las Tablas because they are located in the common areas of our residential developments.
Advantages of Padel sport
Even while the game’s fun factor is one of its main draws, different types of players are undoubtedly drawn to it because of its good impact on their physical and mental health.
- Enhances coordination and agility Prevents depression
- cures physical maladies
- builds self-esteem
- encourages discipline
- lowers the chance of heart attacks
- Enhances rest and sleep Prevents early aging
In conclusion, playing Padel is a great way to burn calories, tone up your muscles, and stay in shape at any age.
Playing Padel in winter too?
Although it can seem like a season-specific activity, Padel can now be played year-round thanks to covered courts. However, they are not the sole option—quite the opposite! Playing Padel all year long is possible if the courts are well-maintained.
The padel courts in our residential communities of Jardines de Tara, Mercedes Formica, and La Rosaleda are open to the public, but we still want you to be able to play there year-round. To that end, we’ve provided some helpful advice for playing Padel in the winter.
Do not over-wrap
While staying warm in the winter is necessary, going beyond can cause you to sweat excessively and increase your chance of getting sick. You should be able to move comfortably in your outfit. Wear cozy clothing that will keep you warm, keep you from getting wind burned, and allow your skin to breathe.
Warm up effectively
Before engaging in any physical activity or sport, warming up is crucial. It enhances performance and helps to prevent injuries.
Warming up for a more extended period of time than usual is a good idea to combat the effects of the cold and prevent potential injuries from stiffness by getting the muscles and joints working.
Verify the equipment and the court.
The cold can impact the court, the balls, and even the racket. Inspecting the court and the equipment before each game will be essential.
You must consider how the balls will react because the courts are often damper because of the temperature change.
Due to the low temperature, the glass could be slippery; as a result, you should take extra caution when taking each shot. Playing off both opponents’ walls while the glass is damp will increase your chances of winning the point.
To improve your ability to hit the ball, dry your racket frequently, keep it from getting wet, and dry it after every point if it does.
With the help of these suggestions, you will be able to play Padel in the winter and even in situations that may initially seem challenging. Remember that if you enjoy playing this sport, you can do so throughout the year in our specially designated community sports spaces.
