The fondness in Ibiza for paddle has increased in the last years. The good weather on the island during almost all year long makes it easier to practice this sport.
Paddle was invented in Acapulco by Mexican man Enrique Corcuera at the end of the 60’ and became popular in Argentina and Brazil.
In the 90’ paddle reached Spain: at present it is one of the most practiced sports in the Iberic country. In 2012 the World Paddle Tour was established, and it gathers the best players in the world.
Paddle is a sport played in couple, using a racket and a tennis ball. A specific court is required, different from the most common sports played with a racket such as tennis.
The game consists in passing the ball from one side to the other using a racket.

Two persons play on one side of the field and the other two on the opposite side and the two couples play against each other.
To succeed in a match of paddle, it is necessary to win at least two sets and in order to win a set six games must be won.
A set is won when passing the six games with a difference of two with the other team. If both teams have a result of six, this is called tie-break.
From this point on the match will follow until one of the two teams mark six points with a difference of two with the other couple.
