Get fit and enjoy competitive sport…

Along with a bustling food, beverage and luxury hotel scene, there are plenty of health and fitness centers and classes on the Palm Jumeirah. Now, a brand new gym facility with padel tennis courts has opened.

It’s named Smash Padel & Fitness Club and you’ll be able to find it at the end of Palm Jumeirah’s popular fitness track, next to Golden Mile Building 1. After much anticipation, it is now open and welcoming visitors.

It is offering members and non-members a fantastic fitness facility with equipment such as running machines, cross trainers, indoor cycling and more. The padel tennis courts are perfect for those who love a bit of competition whilst getting fit.

If you’re not familiar with padel tennis, it’s a form of raquet sport. It’s usually played in doubles on an enclosed court which is roughly three quarters of the size of a normal tennis court. Whilst the scoring is the same as normal tennis, the balls are used with less pressure.
