Hacienda Riquelme's facilities
There are two outdoor tennis courts and paddle courts for guests to use and these can be booked at the Club House.
For those of us who don't know what a paddle court is, it is a game adapted from tennis. Compared to tennis, the court is smaller and has no doubles lanes, and the net is lower. Paddle tennis is played with a solid paddle as opposed to a strung racquet, and a depressurized tennis ball is used along with an underhand serve. The same court is used for both singles and doubles, with doubles being the dominant form of play. The smaller court size adds a strong emphasis and advantage to net play and creates a fast and reaction-based game.
