Emma Watson slips into a black crop top as she shows off her racket skills in Ibiza


Emma Watson showed off her impressive racket skills during a game of padel with her pals as they hit the court in Ibiza on Monday.

The Harry Potter star, 32, donned a black sports bra and matching shorts as she played a game of the paddle sport in the Spanish sunshine.

Clearly in high spirits, Emma shielded her face from the sun with a blue cap as she removed her white T-shirt for the workout with her female pals.

Emma was seen engaging in a game of padel, which is a racket sport typically played in doubles on an enclosed area that is slightly smaller than a tennis court.

Scoring is the same to a tennis match, though the ball used has slightly less pressure.

Engaging in the energetic match, Emma donned the all-black sportswear along with a casual black top as she arrived at the court. 

She was seen arriving at the court in a slogan T-shirt emblazoned with the words #heforshe, a gender equality movement initiated by the United Nations, in which Emma is an advocate and Goodwill Ambassador.

It comes after Emma appeared to slam Harry Potter author JK Rowling as she took to the stage at this year’s BAFTA Film Awards earlier this year. 

The star – best known for her role as Hermione Grainger in the film adaptations of Rowling’s books – took to the stage to present the award of Best Outstanding British Film, when she was introduced by host Rebel Wilson.

Rebel said: ‘Here to present the next award is Emma Watson. She calls herself a feminist, but we all know she’s a witch.’

Rebel took aim at JK earlier in the night, as she joked about her recent weight loss.

Referring to a picture of her at the 2020 ceremony that appeared on screen, she quipped: ‘That was me two years ago and since then I’ve done quite a transformation – I hope JK Rowling still approves.’

The controversy surrounding her began after she tweeted about biological sex leading to backlash and a subsequent ‘cancellation’ from the trans community.  

In June 2020, she took to Twitter to criticise an opinion piece that used the term ‘people who menstruate’ instead of women. She then continued with a thread discussing biological sex. 

She later clarified that she respects ‘every trans person’s rights to live any way that feels authentic and comfortable to them,’ and went on to say she would march ‘if you were discriminated against on the basis of being trans.

‘At the same time, my life has been shaped by being female,’ she said, the Associated Press reported at the time. ‘I do not believe it’s hateful to say so.’

Then, in September 2020, she faced renewed calls of transphobia after it was revealed the the villain in her latest book, Troubled Blood – written under Rowling’s pseudonym Robert Galbraith – is a male serial killer who dresses as a woman to slay his victims.

In the wake of these remarks, Harry Potter actors Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma and Eddie Redmayne, who stars in her Fantastic Beasts films, criticised the author. 

In December, Rowling was once again forced to deny that she is transphobic as she argued for sex, not gender identity, to be the ‘basis of decisions on safeguarding’.
