Abel Buades Vendrell (born 11 July 1977) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a midfielder.
Born in Benimodo, Valencian Community, Buades spent his first four seasons as a senior representing CF Gandía, in Tercera División and Segunda División B. He then signed with Villarreal CF, being assigned to its farm team CD Onda and also loaned to Segunda División club Racing de Ferrol.
In the following two seasons, Buades played in the third division with CD Calahorra and CD Castellón. In July 2003 he moved to Gimnàstic de Tarragona, being promoted to the second level at the first attempt and contributing with 26 matches in the process; in 2006 another promotion befell, with the player again as first-choice.
Buades made his La Liga debut on 27 August 2006, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–0 away win against RCD Espanyol. He scored his first and only goal in the competition on 28 October, but in a 1–3 home loss to Real Madrid; the Catalans were ultimately relegated, but he had already left in the January transfer window to Cádiz CF in division two.
Buades played in the second and third divisions until his retirement, with Gimnàstic, Alicante CF, UD Alzira, CD Toledo (two stints), Barakaldo CF and Arroyo CP. From 2009 to 2012, he suffered four consecutive team relegations.
On 18 July 2014, at already 37, Buades moved back to the fourth level, joining UD Almansa.
