After 35 years, and in all levels of tennis my life changed in December 2015. That was the first time that I played padel with some friends. Very comfortable with each other in a fun way and have fun with other while playing a racketbalsport. From the very first ball I was hooked (read: addicted to).
The ease of use has been further strengthened by the use of walls. These elements where the reasons why I loved to improve my skills. Starting in January of 2016, I was on the court around 3 times a week. Everything had to make a way for padel!! In the meantime, in the country and abroad, many of the clinics and the training courses, given by Spanish and Argentine pros.
