Padel is one of the fastest growing racket sports in the UK, and we are fortunate that Mrs Mackerron takes a keen group to Thistle Padel Club at Craigclockhart every Tuesday evening. They receive coaching from Jorge Martinez, who is the UK's No1 doubles player. Padel is a fast-paced sport played by two people on an enclosed walled court about one-third of the size of a tennis court. It combines tennis rules, with the use of walls (similar to squash) and underhand serving rather than the overhand serving that features in tennis. Lots of fun and the children are enjoying being coached, and playing on such fabulous facilities.
