Ellery Padel Courts

Moving your body and being active is a given part of life, a privilege. That’s just how we look at it. Ellery Beach House is a place where we always strive to move forward, whether we’re running in the track, playing padel, swimming in the pool or having a late night chat in the bar.

We have a total crush on padel, partially because it’s a fun sport, but also because it’s a great way of socializing. Choose between two outdoor padel courts, both in breathtaking surroundings.

Ready, set, serve

PRICES & RESERVATION

As of today, padel is one of the fastest growing sports and can be described as a mix between tennis and squash. It’s fun, fast and suits newbies just as well as pros.

Reserve your court

We have two outdoor padel courts and recommend that you book your game time early, as the courts are popular. We like to think that the sun always shines on Lidingö, but unfortunately we can’t guarantee good weather. If you aren’t able to play due to bad weather conditions, we’ll cancel your court time and reimburse you.
Register at Ellery’s reception before entering the court, where we also have rackets to rent and balls to purchase.

Prices

495 SEK per court & hour

345 SEK per court & hour for overnight Ellery Beach House guests.
The courts can be reserved
all days of the week between 8am to 8pm.

Rules

The moment you & your friends realize you are legends.

Rules

THE RACKETS

Padel rackets differ a bit from tennis and squash rackets. The striking surface is full and drilled with holes made of foam of different densities. Each racket has a strap that you must wear while playing.

THE SHOES

Padel shoes are similar to tennis shoes. The pattern on the soles of the shoes gives you a good grip and support for your ankles.

THE BALLS

Padel balls are similar to tennis balls, but a tad bit softer and smaller. There are rules for how hard the pressure in the ball should be. If you are playing on amateur level, a tennis ball works just as well as a paddle ball.

BUT WHO’S COUNTING ANYWAY?

Padel is a sport that is played in doubles. The servant must be behind the service line and throw the ball diagonally onto the opposite field. However, the serve must be carried out on the side without crossing the pelvic line, not over the head like in tennis. The rest of the players can position themselves anywhere on the field.
The points of a game are counted like in tennis:

  • No point: zero
  • First point: 15
  • Second point: 30
  • Third point: 40
  • Fourth point: game

The set is won by the first team to reach 6 games while leading 2 games in advance and the match is won by the team to win 2 sets.

THE GLASS WALLS

The court is one-third the size of a tennis court and is enclosed with wire mesh and glass walls which you can play off when you need to. Padel is played entirely within four walls which players use to their strategic advantage.
The glass walls allow you to play the ball off the glass, like you would do in a game of squash played off the walls. Yet it’s not the same as playing squash. It’s a totally different ball game altogether.

SERVE

Unlike tennis, where the serve is done overhand (i.e. throw the ball up high and then smashing it down into the service block), in padel, the serve is done underhand, meaning you must bounce the ball once and then hit it below waist level.
Which makes it is easier to play the service, return the ball and start a rally. Both the first and second service is played underhand.
Each game begins with an underhand serve from the right-hand service court into the opponent’s court diagonally across, similar to tennis. The serve must land in the opponent’s service box.
Unlike tennis, you won’t aim for an ace. Instead, you‘ll try to find tight corners and technical spins. If the ball bounces in the service box and strikes the side or back wall, it is a valid service and must be played by the opposing player, if he or she is able to. If the ball lands in the service box and hits the wire fencing, it is considered a service fault.
