LUX* has brought the quintessential LA sport to its shores with this matchless racquet-and-ball game. Paddle Tennis — or Padel as it is in French — takes after tennis in its scoring and style, but with a tiny court and a lower net. With its emphasis on quick, explosive movements, agility, strength, and endurance, this is also an exercise set to get you into winning shape. An easy-to-learn game, it begins by deflating a tennis ball, and then having that rally with a wooden paddle dotted with holes. It's a family favorite — though it also has its own dedicated following of fierce competitors — it’s a healthy dose of fun.
