We are proud to introduce you to our new Padel Tennis sponsor, Bandeja. Bandeja is the first Emirati brand that focus on Padel Tennis since Padel has become one the fastest growing sports worldwide & newly introduced in the UAE. “Bandeja” is a Spanish word that means (tray, platter) but in terms of Padel tennis, “Bandeja” is one of the difficult shots to hit. Their logo is a waved tennis ball that was created by the player’s hands combined with the player jumping to hit the ball.
With their vision to provide a quality product that exceeds the expectations of their esteemed customers and mission to build long term relationships with their customers and provide exceptional products, they aim to be the first Emirati brand that sells all sports products and exports them to the region.

Help a family in need through the ‘Stop and Help’ initiative
This week, Rackets Academy has invited local community initiative Stop and Help to hold court. This life-changing ‘kindness exchange’ was created to serve the community with one simple objective: to match families in desperate need with those who can help. The concept is simple: the details of families that have lost their income are given to registered supporters who then supply as little as a week’s essential provisions – basic food, household and sanitary items. Shopping can be purchased online and delivered direct by several supermarkets across the UAE. It couldn’t be easier to stop another family from going hungry. “What Stop and Help needs now is for more people to sign up to the exchange and share some kindness,” says founder Heather Harries. “If we can lighten the load for a struggling family with a few provisions, like bags of rice, then why not?” Game? Sign up here and you’ll be sent a match via Stop and Help’s Kindness. Register here.
Rule of the Week
If the server clips the net but the ball still goes in the service area then ‘let’ is called and they get to take that serve again without penalty. If the ball hits the net and fails to go in the service area then ‘out’ is called and they lose that serve.
Coach Sean’s Tip of the Week: Early Preparation
“You cannot prepare soon enough; turn your hips and shoulders before the oncoming ball bounces on your side. GET THAT RACKET BACK! …Good luck!“
