Get your gears and warm your bodies up. In this write-up are Manila Padel Club, Ritmus Pilates and Wellness by Aileen Abuel, and Options Studio PH: 

1. Manila Padel Club

Tucked in the heart of Bonifacio Global City is Manila Padel Club, a community with a passion for playing padel, one of the world’s fastest-growing sports. Padel is often described as “tennis with walls” or “squash in the sun”. While both sports seem to look the same, there are many things that differentiate padel from tennis. But the most identifiable difference between the two is the glass walls that surround the padel court. Aside from the spacious court for padel sports, the Manila Padel Club’s 2,000-sqm space boasts a fully-equipped outdoor gym and a cosy clubhouse cafe.
