We have built Norway’s highest padel facility, with two courts and an “Instagram-friendly” background, right next to Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell.

Padel is a relatively new racket sport in Norway – a mixture of tennis and squash. The court is smaller than a tennis court, has glass walls, and – as in squash – you can use the walls to play the game. The racket has no strings and is smaller than a squash racket, providing better control and requiring less strength and technical skill. Padel is a sport that can be mastered quickly. It provides you with a good workout and is suitable for adults and children alike.

Rules of the game

  • The game starts with a forearm serve. It is not allowed to serve above hip height. There are two attempts on the serve.
  • The serve must bounce on the ground before it can be played on from the opponent or hit the wall.

  • The ball can only bounce once on the ground on each side.
  • The ball must first bounce on the ground before hitting the wall.
  • You can hit the ball in the wall (not the fence) on your own side before it goes over to the opponent’s half.
  • When the ball bounces twice in the opponent’s half, your team gets the point.
