The Invention of Padel

Have you ever invented a game to pass the time while on vacation? Well what if that game became a global sensation?

In 1969 Enrique and Viviana Corcuera created a game while on holiday. With federations in 6 continents and millions of players around the world, that game (padel) is now the fastest growing sport on the planet.
