Padel, a global racket sport sensation, is definitely on the up. Taking place on a enclosed court it is often likened to a fusion of tennis and squash.  Superstar enthusiasts such as Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, and Andy Murray and just a small part of a fast growing base of UK players. This sport boasts a staggering worldwide player base of over 25 million individuals.

"As long-standing tennis coaches, we've seen how sports can positively impact lives. Padel has captured our attention, and Playtime Padel Club is our way of spreading that enthusiasm and generating fresh avenues for people to enjoy this invigorating sport," noted [Josh Whiteman], one of the innovative minds behind the initiative. "We invite all to join us on this journey as we transform Battersea Sports Centre into a thriving hub of padel activity and community."

This first forage into padel is just the begining for Playtime Padel. All being well with this test case, the trio hope to launch in Battersea Park and Barn Elms for a summer of Padel in 2024!
