Q: DO YOU HAVE LOW ATTENDANCE RATES ON YOUR TENNIS COURTS OR DO THEY OFTEN STAND EMPTY?
PADEL is a great addition to your existing tennis courts and your sporting facilities can be complemented beautifully with PADEL.
A conversion of an existing low-attended Tennis Court into 1-2 Padel Courts is often possible.
Furthermore, PADEL is played by 4 people which means both that it is relatively low priced for the user and also maximises your court time revenue. As well as being an extra facility to add to your existing portfolio, the padel courts can also double up as a ‘pay and play’ facility where members of the public, not just your existing members, are able to hire the facility and come and use the courts. Padel is the fastest growing racket sport in the world. Padel is a sport which combines action with fun and social interaction. It’s a great sport for players of all ages and skills, as it is both quick and easy to pick up. Most players get the basics within the first half an hour of playing so that they can enjoy the game. Unlike tennis, its not as dependent on strengh and skill but is a very tactical game. This could be a great way to not only recoup any investment in the club but also add valuable exposure of your facility to a wider audience. And remember, we can often fully fund the build depending on various factors.
Adding 3+ courts it’s possible to hold events. These events are not only great ways to make money through entry fees.
Advertising something to the whole community regardless of age or social demographic, padel is a unique way to give something to all members of society. And that brings a big footfall to your premises.
For tennis coaches PADEL is a very good way to diversify their focus, pick up more clients and keep developing their abilities.
PADEL is the perfect complement and alternative for those people that want to enjoy a relatively easy racket sport game in your tennis club. This will help cover that market gap and can even avoid tennis companions getting bored by just watching – they can enjoy a game of padel!
UK TENNIS CLUBS – Padel tennis is now officially a discipline of tennis and under the LTA banner.
“We are incredibly excited about integrating padel into the fabric of tennis in Britain, and the opportunities that presents to grow our sport… We will look to grow it sustainably, as a complementary form of tennis that benefits our sport as a whole, and whether as a player, coach, tennis venue or business, we’d love you to join us and be part of it.”.
Scott Lloyd – LTA Chief Executive.
AT PADEL UNITED WE ARE LOOKING TO EXPAND TO ALL PARTS OF THE UK AND IRELAND.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR POTENTIAL PREMISES.
We will explore all options whether that’s a 3+ court outdoor venue, an upgrade or addition to an existing sports club or centre or a municipal recreation ground.
However our preference is to invest heavily and build 10 court+ indoor venues.
What we can do, from court construction to the full package outlined below…
- We can lease the underused 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 sport 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. Funding applications will soon be invited from all interested parties. Watch this space!
