ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

What is the Evolutive Hole Size?
There are different sizes of holes in the head of the racket for a bigger sweet spot. The 9 mm holes guarantee maximum surface contact and the 12 mm holes increase the size of the sweet spot and better distribute the weight of the racket.
What is Full EVA?
This innovation is exclusive to Artengo, Decathlon's padel brand. The racket is made from a single piece of EVA foam covered with a composite fibre surface. The larger EVA foam surface increases the head's sweet spot and therefore makes it more forgiving of centring errors, resulting in better ball control.
Where does padel come from?
Padel emerged in Mexico at the end of the 60s. It soon found its way to Spain, Argentina, and later to all Spanish-speaking South American countries. Padel is currently the second-most played sport in Spain, behind football but ahead of tennis. There are eight million players around the world.
What are the rules of padel?
Matches are played in teams of two (doubles). Two serves are allowed and must be played underhand, diagonally across the court. One bounce is allowed. The ball must bounce on the floor and can then hit any part of the court. The ball can be hit against a wall after it has bounced (wall only, not the metal fence). The ball can leave the court after bouncing and can be hit back into play from outside the court. The points system is the same as tennis.
How should you start playing padel?
First of all you should choose fairly slow balls with a large diameter, and get yourself a racket that's suited to occasional players. A teardrop-shaped racket is best as it will give you the biggest sweet spot, meaning your balls will be nicely centred and more accurate. Your racket should also be light (between 350 and 380 grammes) to make it easy to swing.

    Buena pala de control.

    Buena relación calidad precio
    Pala ligera con un punto dulce bastante amplio , lo que nos permite tener un buen control de la bola. No es un pala para "pegadores".
    En relación calidad precio, es perfecta!!
