Padel Magazine - The history of padel is a true tale for children.
This is the story of a Mexican, crazy Enrique Corcuera in love with Miss Argentina who was at the origin of the padel.
In the 70 years, Enrique regularly played tennis with his wife. But she complained about her powerful strikes.
Enrique's court had walls, so she had a habit of letting the ball bounce off the back wall before sending it back.
The padel is born.
Spanish-speaking countries now have more than 15 million paddle players.
This sport is aimed at both competitors and the disabled.
This is why, the padel is only at its beginning.
Sport that could become an Olympic sport in a few years,
we could thus boast of being children of Enrique and Miss Argentina. It is not common.
Franck Binisti discovers the padel at the Pyramid Club in 2009 in the Paris region. Since then padel is part of his life. You often see him touring France by going to cover the big French paddle events.
