Padel arrives in Plymouth and Devon!
We are delighted to announce a very exciting partnership with the Marjon University,
Plymouth to not only bring Padel to the students but also the 260,000+ people of Plymouth!
This will be the first major Padel facility in Devon and this multi-court outdoor venue will be able to serve the entire community.
The project will start with a 4-court outdoor facility, 3 panoramic outdoor courts and 1 panoramic outdoor singles court (the first pay and play singles court in the UK).
This facility is next to the main entrance to the University, which will be equipped with a Padel retail section, canteen/restaurant and changing/toilet facilities. Being a part of the sports centre means we sit alongside many other sports including football, netball, athletics, swimming, gym, badminton and much more! This university is well ahead in the game!
We are delighted to bring Padel to the city of Plymouth, and we look forward to making this facility something Plymouth can be proud of. The club will cater for everyone, with regular adult sessions, junior sessions, student sessions, regional and national events and support hubs to help you meet other players!
The unique part of this project is this is the only Padel Tennis facility within a university, so we are excited to be able to engage students to play this rapidly growing sport. Students showing a great interest will be invited to be involved in the running of the facility whilst setting up the first ‘Padel Student society’ within the campus! An exciting prospect for someone…
Planning permission has been approved and the courts are already on site, so we are aiming for an opening date in early September.
