Padel is a fast-paced racquet sport that is gaining popularity as a new alternative to tennis and pickleball. This blend of tennis and squash is attracting high-profile athletes and celebrities like Lionel Messi, David Beckham, Dwyane Wade, Jimmy Butler, Ivanka Trump, and tennis players like Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray.
The sport has over 25 million players worldwide and is the fastest growing in Europe and South America. Wayne Boich, a billionaire businessman and former tennis player, built a padel court in his Miami Beach mansion instead of a tennis court and has since become a strong advocate for the sport.
Boich and financier Ronnie Strasser believe that padel has a bright future in America and plan to promote it through clubs, pop-ups, and tournaments. They believe that padel's intimate and social atmosphere, as well as its quick reflexes, make it a perfect fit for athletes looking to stay in shape.
The future of padel is limitless, according to these enthusiasts
