If you are new to padel and wondering what to wear for your upcoming game, this blog post is for you.

In this article, we will provide you with some tips and recommendations on what to wear for padel.

Comfortable Clothing

First and foremost, you need to wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely and does not restrict your movements.

For men, a pair of shorts and a t-shirt or a polo shirt are a good choice. For women, a sports bra, shorts or a skirt, and a tank top are ideal.

Make sure that your clothing is made of breathable fabric that can wick away sweat and keep you cool during the game.

Padel requires a lot of lateral movement and quick changes of direction, so your footwear is critical.

You should wear shoes that have good lateral support and cushioning.

Tennis shoes or indoor court shoes are good as they offer excellent traction and stability.

But from our experience, we recommend specialised padel shoes for optimum performance.

Avoid wearing running shoes or cross trainers as they do not provide the necessary support for padel.

Eye Protection

Padel balls can travel at high speeds, so you may want to consider protection to avoid any accidents.

You can wear sports goggles or sunglasses that offer UV protection and are shatterproof.

Look for eyewear that is specifically designed for racket sports to ensure maximum protection.

Make sure that your accessories do not hinder your movements or distract you during the game.

In conclusion, padel is a fun and engaging sport that requires the right clothing and equipment to play safely and comfortably.

Make sure that you wear comfortable clothing, proper footwear, eye protection, and any necessary accessories to enjoy your game to the fullest.

By following these tips and recommendations, you can be sure to have a great time playing padel.
