Minter Dial is an international speaker, author and elevator. He’s also a sportsman having played rugby for 18 years and well over 20 different racquet sports. Among these, he has played Eton and Harrow fives, long paume, platform tennis, pop tennis and even pickleball (yes, that too). He played squash at university in the US, taught tennis and reached a handicap of 32 in real tennis. He’s also been playing padel tennis, having started at the age at 10 in 1974 on the very first “public” padel tennis court at the Marbella Club. He has played padel in fifteen countries and tends to play 3-4 times each week in London, where he’s based.  He’s been and continues to be a forever student of the sport and is definitively a loco aficionado of the sport. He has been writing about the sport for well over ten years. See his other padel-related articles here. He’s author of four award-winning books, one award-winning documentary film (The Last Ring Home) and earns his keep as a professional speaker.



At PADEL1969, we are proud to provide one of the best padel products and services in the world. We believe in passion, joy, and integrity. We respect the DNA and roots of Padel – from Acapulco since 1969.
