We at Soneva are introducing padel tennis to its ever-evolving list of unforgettable experiences in the Maldives. The new courts will first be launched at the Noonu Atoll’s Soneva Jani in October, followed shortly after at Soneva Fushi in the Baa Atoll.
Originally invented in 1969 in Mexico by Enrique Corcuera, padel tennis is usually played in doubles on an enclosed court that is around one-third the size of a normal tennis court. Points are scored the same as in a tennis match, using special padel bats as racquets, however, in padel tennis, the height of the ball must be served at or below waist level. Set against an idyllic backdrop of tropical island surrounds at Soneva Jani and lush jungle at Soneva Fushi, each court will be fully equipped and open to Soneva guests of all ages for both private or group lessons and friendly games.
