The emerging sport, Padel aka Padel Tennis, is a trending new racket sport, played in a glass walled court, a game of doubles for every skill and ability level. This makes Padel a highly accessible and enjoyable sport for players to participate in.
The Padel Club successfully launched in Wilmslow, Cheshire, with high occupancy rates and have seen significant demand for Padel in the UK market.
According to The Padel Club, player participation in the sport has significantly increased during the last 12 months – and forecast to grow exponentially – so The Padel Club have secured an impressive second site at TraffordCity hoping to become a destination Padel site for the UK.
Working in partnership with Peel L&P, The Padel Club at TraffordCity promises to be a major new hub for health, sport and socialising surrounded by shops, restaurants and leisure.
The Padel Club have submitted plans to Trafford Council to build a high specification Padel club, that will include 11 courts: 9 covered courts and two open air courts. Additionally, there will be a clubhouse and facilities, that will provide ‘a social space for players to connect and create a community, advocating well-being and interaction.’
The 1.5 acre development costing circa. £2m to build, will create 15 jobs specifically in the emerging sport and hopes to support further positive economic impact to the complex and surrounding catchment.
“We are delighted to be establishing our next Padel Club at an incredible location in Trafford City,” says Kristopher Ball, Founder and CEO at the Padel Club.
“We will be launching a fantastic new sport into to a destination that is already thriving with other excellent sporting businesses. We very much look forward to sharing more detail about our club plans.”
James Whittaker, Executive Director of Development at Peel L&P added: “TraffordCity is the UK’s foremost retail, leisure and commercial destination and we are very proud to be working in partnership with The Padel Club to serve up their fantastic offering and experience to our TraffordCity community.
“We’re passionate about health, wellbeing and community. From skiing and soccer to sky diving, snowboarding and golf, TraffordCity is the only destination in the UK to offer all of these activities in one place and we are very excited to be able to add Padel to our fantastic mix of inclusive sport and social experiences; whilst supporting further job creation and opportunities within our local community.”
The construction of the Padel Club at TraffordCity is set to commence in 2023, with an estimated completion time of approximately four months.
