Padel, a sport that originated in Mexico in the 1960s, has seen a significant growth in popularity in recent years. This unique blend of tennis and squash has captured the hearts of many sports enthusiasts, both young and old, across the country.

The sport is played on a smaller court surrounded by walls, which allows for the ball to be played off the walls, adding an extra element of strategy and excitement to the game. Padel is typically played in doubles, with a scoring system similar to tennis.

In Mexico, padel has gained a strong following, with dedicated courts popping up in cities and towns across the country. One city where the sport has particularly taken off is Mexicali. The city has several padel clubs and courts, attracting players of all skill levels.

The popularity of padel in Mexicali can be attributed to several factors. The sport is relatively easy to learn, making it accessible to beginners, while still offering a challenge to more experienced players. Additionally, the social aspect of playing in doubles has made Padel a popular choice for those looking to stay active and connect with others.

The Palestra Club Deportivo has seen a surge in membership in recent years. The club offers lessons for beginners, as well as tournaments and league play for more advanced players. With a vibrant and welcoming community, the club has become a hub for padel enthusiasts in Mexicali.
