At Padel United we are looking to expand to ALL parts of the UK.

London, Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham & Bristol are our prime targets – but we invite all applications.

We are looking for potential premises, that could be landspace or an existing large building. We will explore all options whether that’s a smaller outdoor venue, an upgrade or addition to an existing sports club or centre or a municipal recreation ground.

What we can do

  • We lease the industrial logistic or sports club space and transform it into an amazing padel arena with a lounge area, dinner areas, gym, kids area, and, of course, world-class padel courts.
  • We build the courts in collaboration with a Spanish-based company with more than 40 years of experience within the padel industry.
  • We run the clubs and educate staff, padel coaches, and management
  • We raise awareness and create ”buzz” around padel in collaboration with sports profiles and other influencers.
  • We offer training programs, leagues, and other types of tournaments.

What we are ideally looking for?

  • A space of 2500-9500 sqm.
  • A minimum of 8 meters as height requirement.
  • Cities with +200 000 inhabitants is our main target.
  • As close to the city center as possible.
  • Deposits/security guarantees are not an issue. We have strong investors backing up our venture.

We will open our first major indoor venue at a location already agreed and more details will follow on this soon.
