    The Rush at Ruya Club in Sheikh Zayed kicked off the winter season with a bang last weekend when they opened up their facilities to the public for all padel enthusiasts. The long-awaited padel-instructor certification course (CCC Level 1) took place under the knowledgeable instruction and supervision of world-renowned padel coach and president of the leading padel education organisation, RPP, Luis Mediero. 

    The workshop lasted three days with 12 participants, with some visiting for the weekend from Kuwait and Qatar! Each day was built around RPP’s patented methodology, which applies the four integrated pillars of technical, tactical, physical, and mental preparation towards achieving an “Ideal Competitive State” as a player and coach. Through RPP’s philosophical teaching method, every skill acquisition included an introduction, a teaching portion, individual help, a practice session, game time, and wrap up.

    The Rush aims to offer spin-off sports opportunities to the Cairo community and do so through providing state-of-the-art facilities for sports like pickleball, beach tennis, and beach volley in addition to the oh-so-popular padel. As a recreational sports destination, they also offer lessons with certified coaches and, as we saw a few days ago, unique workshops for coaching certifications and more. Book court time here.

    This unique sports facility provides a space for individuals, families and friend groups to try something new or hone-in on their skills in the sand and on the court. They even offer recreational opportunities for corporations looking to switch-up team building opportunities for their employees! In any case, The Rush is worth looking into!
