While padel is mostly played in Spain (and originates from Spain itself), a typical padel court can often feel similar to a tennis-based court. However, many people prefer padel tennis designs over a regular enclosed court due to the wider space, which is suitable for a greater range of different matches.
We are padel court construction specialists with a real passion for specially prepared and high-quality padel courts, working with our clients to deliver a suitable venue for their favourite sport with ease.
There are many different types of court surfacing available across the UK, and we supply a wide range of surfaces and materials for our padel tennis spaces.
Whether you are setting up padel tennis courts for world padel tour tournaments or just prefer a padel tennis court's ability to offer more space, our team can deliver the right padel tennis court design with minimal hassle.
The flooring of a padel court can be made using a range of well-known synthetic materials. Our team can help you find the right material for your sports habits, as well as specific places like sports clubs or a venue for a padel tour event.
The floor material is chosen in a similar process to a non-padel tennis court. However, the smaller size of most regular padel spaces compared to a standard tennis court can make them more convenient for clubs and other properties with limited space.
The average cost of a padel court ranges from £10,000 to £20,000, depending on the work involved. However, this can vary heavily based on a wide range of factors, such as:
The court size
The size of the venue and the difficulty of installation
Any work needed to make the venue suitable for the court
The amount of available seating for spectators
The time constraints of the project
The amount of structural support the court may need
Whether the court is being installed in an indoor space or outdoors
Whether or not the court needs to be up to world wide events standards or suitable for tournaments, club events, etc
Additional services, such as designing the padel court to match a planned world padel tour aesthetic or the visual style of a sports club
The effort involved in having to manage the installation
Padel courts can be installed anywhere that there is room. With the increased popularity of padel and almost any other tennis-like sport England-wide, they often see use in more places than you may think:
Parks (e.g. Hyde Park, Regent's Park)
Sports club properties (e.g. Hazelwood Sports Club, Ipswich Sports Club, Weybridge Padel Club)
Leisure centres and casual sports club properties
Public sports or club areas
World sports event venues
From Wales to Scotland and all across the UK, padel clubs are becoming more and more common. The game has been used as a club activity, a way to support people getting more exercise, and even in major sports facilities like Hyde Park.
The obvious benefits for these are the exercise, as well as the variety that they can offer clubs or parks (or even a paid leisure centre business/service). However, compared to regular tennis club courts, they offer numerous benefits.
Smaller court size, making it more convenient for a club with limited space
Standard design that allows almost any game to be played, including regular tennis
Enclosed design, making played games less likely to interfere with others nearby. Since most tennis spaces are open, a poor racket hit can send a ball completely out of bounds
Lower material costs due to the slightly smaller size
Easy conversion into a regular tennis court if needed
There are also other aspects of these courts that can be better than tennis club courts, depending on the design. For example, they can often support a roof covering much more easily.
Our team know how to build padel club courts effectively, whether we are retaining all of the aspects of courts initially established by Spain or making an exception to certain design details.
Our process for creating these padel club courts is relatively simple:
Plan out the design in advance and consider environmental factors
Establish health and safety plans
Set up drainage
Install a sub-base and base
Set up the concrete ring beam perimeter for the fences and supporting posts
Enclose the court with walls or fences
Lay down the padel court surface
Install any ancillary equipment, from storage for balls and rackets to lighting
High-quality padel courts often follow specific specifications based on how the original sport is played.
Most are 20m long and 10m wide, enclosed and above ground. This falls in line with how the sport is played, although you can also play other ball games within the play space even with its slightly smaller size.
The back walls of padel tennis courts are important. From strengthened glass panels to simply wire walls and fences, we can find you the right option for your preferred design. This includes working out the right kind of glass panels or fencing options for the venue itself.
Since padel tennis rules use these back walls as ways to bounce the balls, the wall choices for both indoor and outdoor courts matter more than you might expect. Even if you are planning to use it mostly as a doubles court, having the right wall surfaces can really matter.
Padel courts are smaller than tennis courts and much smaller than doubles areas. They provide a space to play padel and other games using the same kinds of rackets, and with the right planning, they can become a general place to play similar games.
Pickleball uses an even smaller court play space than padel, making it less of an investment but giving you a more limited amount of space to work with. This makes padel courts more versatile overall.
A padel court is a space to play padel, a game that is often considered a mixture between tennis and squash.
These courts are slightly smaller than typical tennis courts and are walled in to allow for wall bounces.
The surfaces are usually the same synthetic materials as those used in tennis areas, and the overall design is mostly similar. This makes the installation project relatively straightforward, even if the project is a conversion from a tennis court into a padel court.
"The new court looks fantastic, and the installation hire was affordable. Absolutely recommend."
"We had to pay less than we thought for the installation service, but the new court is even better than the old one."
"We had to purchase a court on short notice for our club members, and the installation was extremely fast. We're very happy with the quality of service we decided to pay for, and the new one as a whole."
Padel spaces are most useful for any club that has varied sports as part of its business model.
Padel originated in Spain but has become more and more popular in the UK over time.
These courts are enclosed as part of the game, allowing for balls to bounce off walls.
