— Joshua Leone / Stefano Savio

We have already seen how to build a Padel camp and how important it is to choose the best materials to avoid unnecessary risks over time. Today, however, we want to talk about why it is worth investing in padel and how much a playing courts costs. Investing in padel: cost of courtss, materials, courts measurements, necessary work, permits to open outdoor and indoor courtss, costs, guarantees… Here is all the information for those who are interested in a form of investment that can yield, on average, over 3,000 euros per month for each courts installed. But first, some premise is needed.

For each courts installed. But first, some premise is needed.

1.The padel market: steady growth

Padel is a sport that in Italy in the last three years has had an exponential growth: the number of “official” courtss has gone from a few tens to over 600, while the number of players has increased from about 100 to over 5,000, while practitioners and amateurs who every week book a courts – more difficult to monitor – exceed tens of thousands (certainly over 15,000 estimated in summer 2017 – source

This is because fun is guaranteed: padel is the new emerging sport, increasingly in demand – especially in big cities, such as Rome and Milan.

“The race to find a free courts has no precedent of this level: not even when the activity of football debuted at 5 there was a bang like that. Consider that in the capital there are over 150 courts – we are at record levels: in Italy are inaugurated about four facilities a day, and it is impossible today to make predictions of where the padel can get. In the spring of 2014 it was an almost unknown sport. Now there is a line to learn to play and then have fun with friends.

Thanks also to the popularity given by the initial push that the many fans belonging to the “vip world” – including Novak Djokovic, Francesco Totti, Roberto Mancini, Paolo Bonolis and Diego Armando Maradona – (and their follow-up on social networks) have given to this sport, playing and giving spectacle publicly on the courtss of Rome and other European capitals.

Mancini, on the other hand, had been one of the first to try this sport that nobody knew.

«In Bologna, at the club near the airport, they were almost padel maniacs. While I was playing tennis, other members locked themselves in that transparent cage and had fun. I started slowly, too, and today I couldn’t do without it» Mancini said.

While on the rapid spread of this sport in Italy the president of CONI Giovanni Malagò said: I seem to relive the path of soccer, born in Rome and then exploded throughout Italy. There are sports that are about to enter the Olympic disciplines, such as surfing, so I am sure that padel will also have its moment of glory».

Padel is a sport that is involving in national and international a percentage of female audience more and more than tennis and therefore manages to ensure a greater balance in the courts between men and women.

2.Should you build a courts from Padel? Yes: here are the advantages of padel, numbers in hand.

  1. A padel court requires about 1/3 of the space (200 sq m) compared to a tennis court (648 sq m).

  2. It’s a very lucrative investment – in fact, it’s the sport that has had the highest growth rates for membership and players in the last 5 years.
  3. A padel court has a relatively low cost and a medium long life, obviously linked to the quality of the materials (about 20 years).

  4. In each match there are 4 players, 2 on one side and two on the other and the match lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes.

  5. The average cost per game is €12 per player, excluding balls and rackets, for a total of €48 per game (90 minutes). Calculating that the clubs organize 2 matches every 24h on weekdays and 5 matches every 24h on public holidays, it comes to an estimated 3840 € per month, which a year ago more than 45 thousand euros for each courts installed.

  6. To these gains should also be added the income derived from the shop inside the club, which can provide clothing, balls and rackets. On average, the balls have to be changed every 3 games and a not occasional player changes the racket every 4 months.

3. Padel courts for villages, hotels, cruises, companies and individuals: where can a padel court be installed?

Padel is not only an opportunity for sports clubs, but can also be an opportunity for those who offer recreational services to their customers, such as hotels, resorts and cruise ships.

In recent years with the spread of the internet these businesses have had a huge difficulty in finding new customers, since it has come to a point where buyers are faced with many receptive realities, with increasingly competitive and similar prices. At this point a trump card can be to differentiate themselves in the services offered, offering first something that others do not yet offer.

A padel court could therefore improve the appeal of its offer, compared to that of competitors, with a contained investment.

But the demand is constantly growing not only from the commercial activities: There are also many private individuals and companies that require the installation of a padel court in their own spaces – to train every day or to expand the recreational area of their employees.

4.How much space does it take to build a Padel court? Less than a tennis court. Here are all the measures.

The main measures of a padel court are:

Length: 20 meters.

Width: 10 meters.

Wall height: 3 /4 meters.

The free space of the playing surface must be 7 metres.

Padel’s courts can be placed both outdoors (outdoor) and indoors (indoor courts).

Quality courtss are formed by:

  1. A background (also known as the floor) of the playing courts that must conform to the characteristics required by the design drawn up by an engineer. This work must not have imperfections such as depressions and/or ridges.
  2. Hot-dip galvanized iron poles and nets with anti-corrosion welds and an anti abrasion cover profile.
  3. 12 mm tempered glass

What are the models of the padel courts? We have two: Deluxe and Panoramic.

Italian Padel offers two models of courtss ready for installation: Deluxe and Panoramic. Which differ in characteristics and prices.

Building a padel courts: permissions and permissions

Given that any good builder is able to provide due assistance also with regard to the bureaucratic aspect, it is necessary to consider the following:

To build a padel court it is important to be aware that the works for its construction fall within the national technical standards for construction, therefore it is necessary to consult the technical office of the municipality to verify the need to submit a proper building procedure such as:

DIA, SCIA, CIL OR CILA with assignment to competent and qualified technicians, who must also carry out an expert assessment of the nature of the soil, the presence of wind etc.

It is essential, to exclude civil or criminal liability of managers and owners, to follow the correct bureaucratic process of implementation, identifying companies able to guarantee products compliant with building and structural regulations with an adequate guarantee of durability, assumed at least in 15/20 years.
