THERE was a great turn out for the first of the West of Scotland Padel Club open nights last Wednesday. The next open night is tonight (Wednesday) from 7-9pm at Unit 10, Stevenston

Industrial Estate. Non-members and guests can play for free. Similar to tennis the popular sport in Spain uses swingball style racquets, and the tennis ball can bounce off the toughened glass on the back wall, keeping rallies going for longer.

Pep Guardiola even had padel courts built at Manchester City’s training complex.
