The Padel Club has seen significant demand for Padel in the UK market, reflected in the high occupancy rates at the Club, as the player participation in the sport has significantly increased during the last 12 months – and forecast to grow exponentially.

Padel is the most on trend 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.

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 Club’s architectural design and landscaped surrounds will provide an unparalleled experience for Padel players and sports spectators.

The Padel Club at TraffordCity will be a 1.5 acre development and a c£2m build, creating 15 jobs specifically in the emerging sport and support further positive economic impact to the complex and surrounding catchment.
