WHAT IS PADEL?
Padel tennis (or just Padel) is a racquet sport played extensively in Spain, Europe and LatinAmerica. Padel has been likened to “Tennis with walls”.
Padel is typically played in doubles on an enclosed court about half of the size of a tennis court. It is a sport that combines the best elements of tennis, squash and Racquetball.
It has gained tremendous popularity due to its simplicity and similarities to already existing racquet sports.
The balls used are the same as in Tennis and the scoring is also the same, just with a little less pressure. Therefore, the biggest difference is that the court has glass walls and the balls can be played off them in a similar way as in Squash. The rules allow for the use of the back and sidewalls, resulting in longer rallies.
WHY INVEST IN PADEL
WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER CONVERTING YOUR TENNIS COURTS INTO PADEL COURTS?
1. HIGH PROFITABILITY / SHORT ROI (Return On Investment):
One Padel court occupies almost half of the size of a Tennis court. (1 Tennis court* = 2/3 Padel courts). Tennis is mostly played only by two people. Padel game is mostly played by four players. Once one Tennis court is converted into three Padel courts, in the same space where only two people played tennis (1 Tennis court), now 12 people would play Padel (3 Padel courts). This approach means that charging the same proportional price as in Tennis, the Padel player would pay half of the price to use the court and at the same time the club would get triple of the profit.
* Depending on the surrounding area of the tennis court (up to three courts can be installed)
2. PADEL IS FUN!
Padel is an addictive game to anyone who tries it!. It is an easy game to learn, rather than Tennis or Squash and does not require much physical condition or technical skills. It follows the same rules as Tennis.
Padel can be played with mixed couples, among all family members, seniors and it is also accessible to children.
It can be played both, indoors and outdoors, and at all hours of the day as the installation includes 8 lighting posts to prevent shadows.
Padel gives the players the opportunity to socialize easily and encourage them to participate in social sportive events, tournaments and championships.
In Europe, many famous people and celebrities are practicing it and some even investing in this fast growing and successful business (Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Emilio Sánchez-Vicario, José Maria Aznar…)
3. GREAT HEALTH BENEFITS:
Padel, without involving risk, brings quickly great health benefits to those who practice it. Another incentive is to socialize and expand the circle of friends.
4. HIGH END SAFE COURTS EASY AND FAST TO INSTALL AND MAINTAIN:
Padel Courts are made of the highest quality materials and systems, providing a reliable and safe court within a competitive price, which guarantees the product a long life with just a simple systematic maintenance required.
The quality and product success of The Padel Box courts is also due to a high quality installation being performed by our experienced installers. A court can be installed in about 3/5days with the slab or foundation already in place. The cost and installation time of the slab or foundation depends on the soil conditions and its previous analysis.
Over the slab or foundation a layer of turf (an special artificial grass) is installed. Over the turf is spread a special Silica sand to achieve a greater comfort and better safety in the game. The most common standard colors for turf are: green, blue and dark brown, but it can also be customized. Easy maintenance.
Immediately after the construction of the track there are a work period in establishing the playing surface. Initially the track surface must be quite sandy. Full penetration of the filling sand in the polyethylene fibers and subsequent compaction occurs naturally as a result of rainfall and the first games. This process usually takes about two or three months.
During construction every effort should focus on the equitable distribution of the sand on the entire track. However experience has shown that increasing the scan during the first weeks is beneficial for the creation of the final surface of play. In case there are large areas of low sand or respond positively to this treatment, the installer must call immediately.
5. GOOD WITH THE ENVIRONMENT:
Approx 90% of the materials used to build the courts are recyclable, being mostly steel and tempered glass.
The lighting is directed down to avoid unnecessary light pollution and the system allows the option to use LED lamps, with a much lower power consume, instead of the regular 400W halogen lamps.
