10 Of The Best Padel Clubs In The UK

June 9, 2021

Padel (also known as paddle tennis) is a new sport that has reached the shores of the UK from Mexico and has hit the domestic racquet sports scene by storm. The game is a hybrid between tennis and racquetball, which combines the skill of tennis with the ferocity of racquetball (squash). The sport’s rise in popularity is mainly due to its competitiveness, with many people testing their overall racquet ability by using a smaller racquet and using the walls of the court to score points. 

We have been thinking recently, where are the best padel clubs in the UK? So we at PadelPadelPadel have compiled our 10 best padel clubs in the UK that we think you should join.
