This relatively new sport has become one of the most popular racquet games in Spain and the craze is spreading across Europe. A paddle (pádel' in Spanish) court is smaller than a tennis court, with simpler line markings. It has high surrounding walls of glass and/or solid construction. It has been described as a squash court in the sun and is the perfect sport for Andalucía's fantastic climate. The scoring is similar to tennis and it can also be played in either singles or doubles. A game is the best of three sets.
