Padel beginnings

Rose first played Padel at the National Tennis Centre at the end of 2021. She was introduced to it by a friends and just played the one time. She loved it but didn't play again for a couple of months and just viewed it as a hobby at the very beginning.

She spent a lot of time playing tennis as a junior and was able to apply the skills she had learnt from tennis to a new sport, which was very satisfying. She found it really addictive and saw improvements quite quickly, which made it motivating to play more and more. 

She always played high level sport throughout her life - tennis as a junior, then rugby until she left uni, so found it nice to have a focus and something to train for and compete at again.

Rose is currently a semi-professional Padel player as she's working part-time. As soon as the opportunity came for her to cut down on work to focus on padel, she took it. The motivation and enjoyment from Padel is something she doesn't get in any other aspect of her life.
