Padelmania in Russia
Padel is the fastest growing racket sport in the world – and Russia is part of that.
Thanks to three Russian Padel enthusiasts recognising this sport’s potential, ‘Padelmania’ is spreading across Russia as more and more people fall in love with this fun game. Andrey Kaklyukhin, Christian Tarruella and Alexandr Vdovin wanted to share their passion for Padel with the people of Russia and fans are growing throughout Eastern-Europe.
Russian Padel Association
In 2014 Padel first arrived in the Russian city of Voronezh and in the same year The Russian Padel Association formed.
Following this, Russian Federation tournaments were played and in 2015 a Russian club team participated in an international match located in Lyon for the trophy. The numbers of Padel clubs that are members of the Padel Federation, licensed players and recreational players in indoor and outdoor Padel courts are growing along with fans worldwide. Therefore, many businesses and communities are investing in the building of Padel tennis courts to meet the demand. In particularly, we have seen a rise in hotels and the leisure industry making use of recreational spaces to provide tourist with padel as a fun group activity that can be enjoyed by all whilst on holiday.
Usually played in doubles, using string less racquets and a low compression tennis ball, GoPadel is played in an enclosed court and is technically a cross between badminton, squash and tennis. GoPadel is perfect as both an outdoor or indoor activity for all abilities on a play area smaller in size than a tennis court. Padel is not dominated by strength and serves as points are won by strategy and technique. A sociable and relatively easy to learn game, Padel is ideal for friends and family of all ages, corporate events, team building and groups in general.
