Padel Tennis

Hideaway‘s fully scenic Padel Court is available for beginners and expert players alike. With instructors on hand, the experience launched at a great time as demand for the sport has risen globally over recent years. Padel, which is easy to play, fun, and sociable has recently been recognized as a form of tennis and is loved by many, including famous sporting figures around the world. Set against an idyllic background of the tropical island, the court is fully equipped and open for guests of all ages for both private and group lessons or even a friendly game. Padel is based on tennis and is traditionally played in doubles, two players on each side, on a 20 meters long and 10 meters wide court. A Padel tennis court is smaller than a standard tennis court, which makes rallies easier and makes the sport fun to play for both racket sports enthusiasts and complete newcomers. The sport is less technically challenging than tennis, making it easier to pick up. Guests are able to book private sessions with their butler or can book directly with the coaches.
