This is a question that you are certainly asking yourself if you have just started padel : what is the ideal size for a player?

A few years ago, we averaged the WPT Top 50 and saw that the average size was 179cm for men. A fairly normal size in the end, but as you will see below, there can be big variations!

Thanks to the work of Carlota Palma, we now know the biggest and smallest players in the Top 100 World Padel Tour of last year. Here are the results.
