Source: TH

 Context: Pade, a racket sport played in over 90 countries, is gaining attention around the world.

It originated in Mexico in the 1960s and is played in a two-on-two format with underhand serves. Padel utilizes a turf court and glass walls, allowing players to use them strategically. It is similar to tennis but played on a smaller court with glass walls. The objective is to hit the ball over the net, using an underhand serve, and make it bounce off the walls before the opponents can return it. The game combines elements of tennis and squash.
