PADEL ORIGINS

“Industrialist Enrique Corcuera is credited with inventing Padel in the 1960s at his home in Acapulco, Mexico. Confined by the size of his garden, he had a small, enclosed court built. The concept was then taken to Spain by Prince Alfonso de Hohenlohe who had visited Corcuera in the early 1970s. He refined the game and opened the first Padel Court at his hotel in Marbella.”
