Padel and Pickleball holidays
Two new racquet sports are growing like crazy across the world, padel and pickleball and you can get on court and give them a go with Mark Warner.
If you love tennis, you should certainly give padel a try - a tennis-squash hybrid that’s been around since the 60s. With newly built padel courts and equipment, we’re now offering padel as part of our holiday packages at our Kamari and Aeolian Village resorts in Greece.
For the uninitiated, the rules of the game and the way you score are more or less the same as in tennis. However, like squash, you can play off the walls.
Pickleball is a similar concept, but there are no walls to play off and the game is played with a hard ball, giving the game a lot in common with badminton and table tennis. The three new pickleball courts at Phokaia in Turkey are proving to be hugely popular as the game is super-fast to pick up and fun for all the family.
Our expert tennis coaches are on hand to give you pointers, or even private tuition, if you’d like to boost your skills at these new sports.
