    What Is Padel Tennis And Padel Courts in China ? Mar 14, 2024
          In August 2023, the International Olympic Committee announced the candidate list of nine new events for the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics. When the domestic sports community regretted that Ultimate Frisbee was not included in the selection, the most regrettable thing in the entire Spanish-speaking and Latin-speaking regions should be the Tennis (Padel) is absent.   Padel tennis has been one of the most talked-about new sports in the world over the past few months. In addition to being included in the official competition events of the 2023 European Games, the world's top paddle tennis event has also received investment from Middle Eastern capital. The sub-station event is about to land in Africa. The International Padel Tennis Federation (FIP) is also actively promoting the project to enter the Asian Games. and the Commonwealth Games.   2022 is the year of the rise of niche sports in China. While Frisbee and Lu Chong have become the social currencies of young people in first-tier cities, padel tennis, which is popular overseas, is actually quietly growing in China. However, compared to the rapid popularity of other sports in various places, paddle tennis seems to be only popular in Shanghai. In addition, it can only be seen in a few cities such as Changsha and Chengdu. However, in first-tier cities such as Beijing, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen, this movement is hard to find.   Today, when all popular elements are spreading rapidly, it is difficult to imagine that an imported sport would become such a "local characteristic" in China. Two "Shanghai Styles" Padel tennis was born out of tennis. On the intercontinental cruise ships in the early last century, aristocrats liked to play tennis on the ship, but were afraid of the ball falling into the sea, so they thought of building glass walls to surround the court, and paddle tennis took shape.   By 1969, the first Padel Court appeared in Acapulco, Mexico. The sport subsequently spread to Spain and quickly spread in Spanish-speaking and Latin-speaking countries around the world. FIP officials stated that there are currently more than 25 million padel fans around the world, and the number of participants in this sport has doubled in the past five years.   In terms of rules, Padel is similar to a hybrid of tennis and squash - players can either follow the tennis rules and hit the ball before it hits the ground twice, or they can wait for the ball to bounce off the tempered glass on the sidelines and continue hitting. In addition, the paddle tennis court is 20 meters long and 10 meters wide, which is less than one-third of the area of a standard tennis court, and they are all used for doubles; the racket also adds foam cotton on the basis of carbon fiber, and its elasticity is relatively weakened.   Due to these rule settings, paddle tennis requires less strength and running than tennis, and focuses more on agility. And for people with a basic knowledge of tennis, badminton, and table tennis, similar swing movements also make paddle tennis a novice-friendly sport. Of course, in order to become popular in the current communication environment dominated by social media, new sports also need social functions, trendy attributes and "filmmaking" effects. Paddle tennis obviously doesn't lack these items.   In 2016, padel tennis was officially introduced into the country. Two years later, the Chinese paddle tennis tour sponsored by the Chinese Tennis Association was born. However, it was not until this year that the project accelerated its development in the country. The person in charge of marketing of the Shanghai Padel Tennis Club told reporters that the club was established in 2018, but before this year, the players of this sport were mainly foreigners living in Shanghai, accounting for 70%; and since the end of the epidemic in Shanghai in June this year , the proportion of domestic players has increased rapidly, and now accounts for nearly 60% of foreign users.   Now, a search for “padel tennis” on Meituan-Dianping shows that there are nearly 15 Padel Courts in Shanghai, belonging to about 8 different operators. But at the same time, a search for Padel Court in Beijing on the same platform showed zero. On Xiaohongshu, notes on paddle tennis are almost exclusively limited to Shanghai. Padel tennis, which originated at sea, seemed to be trapped in Shanghai after arriving in China.   Who dares to invest in building and Install a Padel Court ?   Of course, there are also a few practitioners who have brought paddle tennis to other cities, such as Changsha and Chengdu. The 2010 Padel Club is located in Changsha. Its venue was established in 2018. It was initially mainly used for public welfare promotion of the project with the support of the local Sports Bureau. It also hosted the 2018 China Padel Tennis Tour Finals. At the beginning of this year, the venue began commercial operations.   Compared with other emerging sports, the venue is the key factor affecting the promotion of padel tennis. Unlike Frisbee, which can use a football field, and land rush, which can directly use flat ground, paddle tennis must be played on a standard field of a specific size and equipped with tempered glass. This also requires the construction of a field from the beginning for the promotion of this sport. This is obviously An asset-heavy operating method.   The population characteristics and business environment in different places are the main considerations in choosing cities for promotion. In Shanghai, padel tennis itself has a certain amount of foreign user base, while other cities often need to start from scratch and promote it step by step. Changsha and Chengdu are both cities with young and inclusive consumer groups, and land prices are relatively low. Coupled with the support of local governments, the experiment of padel can be continued.   Of course, in addition to venues and clubs specializing in padel, there are also a large number of sports communities that regard paddle tennis as a new "content", and they also play a role in spreading the project. But for these communities, the core asset is people, which can carry social and trendy sports.   Abroad, this is already a sport with clear competitive rules, promotion channels, and event business systems, and is attracting an influx of more and more capital. Once Padel Sports enters the Asian Games or Olympic Games, it goes without saying that the resources of the sports management department will be tilted, and the relevant business system can also immediately include the Chinese market.   being targeted There is no doubt that paddle tennis has huge potential in the global market. Nadal and Beckham frequently posted photos of themselves playing Padel tennis. Liverpool Football Club has incorporated paddle tennis into its team training program. Murray invested US$1.7 million in Game4Padel. Zlatan Ibrahimovic even built his own paddle tennis facility in Sweden. site. The celebrity effect spreads the influence of the project quickly. The International Padel Federation (FIP) stated that in countries such as Spain, paddle tennis has become the second most popular sport after football. However, the excitement of paddle tennis today is not only about the sport itself, but also about the undercurrent of power struggles.   In the past, the World Padel Tour (WPT) has always been the most influential padel tennis event in the world. Chinese athlete Zhang Bohou, who switched from tennis to sports, also competed in the WPT and was known as the "No. 1 padel player in China. " However, the landscape of this emerging project is also undergoing drastic changes.   In fact, although the WPT has long had the best athletes, this event is actually operated by the Spanish beer brand Estrella Damm and is not directly supervised by the FIP. As padel tennis becomes more popular around the world, Middle Eastern capital has decided to grab the cake.   In February this year, FIP received investment from Qatar Sports Investment (QSI) and announced the establishment of a new Premier Padel event directly supervised by FIP. Starting from this year, this new event will have 10 padel tournaments every year, with a prize pool of 525,000 euros per stop, and the total annual prize money is about 80% higher than the WPT.   Such a move is obviously robbing people. Sports Pro Media reported that most top players have contracts with the WPT until 2023 and are therefore temporarily unable to participate in the Premier Padel. However, the FIP and the Padel Tennis Professionals Association have filed a lawsuit against the WPT to the European Commission, accusing the other party of signing "illegal exclusives" with players. "The FIP has made no secret that they want the Premier Padel to replace the WPT as the sport's number one event." In May, the WPT also sued the other party for "attempting to exclude it from the market and deviating from its role as a fair player." The role of nonprofit regulators.”   To put it simply, the international governing body of paddle tennis, after seeing the huge commercial value of this sport, decided to kick away the "tradition" of the past and completely stand on its own. The press release announcing the establishment of the event on the FIP official website even used the ironic title: A BRIGHT & BRILLIANT NEW DAWN FOR PADEL, "A bright and brilliant new dawn for padel tennis has come."   However, the battle is not over yet. Within a few months, Premier Padel signed copyright agreements with media platforms such as ESPN, Sky, BeIN Sports, Canal+, RTVE, etc., and WPT also reached cooperation with BT Sport and Mediapro. There is no result yet on which side will win, but what is certain is that the participation of many media giants will bring unimaginable commercial value to paddle tennis.   It is not difficult to see that the direct cause of this conflict is the entry of Qatar Sports Investment Authority, which is also the current owner of Paris Saint-Germain Football Club. It is nothing new for Middle East sovereign funds to invest in sports. The conflict caused by the Qataris this time is exactly the same as the previous investment by the Saudis in golf. (Extended reading: Saudi funds have invested billions of dollars, and the golf version of the "European Super League" is about to come true.) What is a little surprising is that Middle Eastern capital has already set its sights on the emerging sport of padel tennis.

We are willing to share our 13 years of professional Padel stadiums construction and installation experience with the world. If you are a beginner, please read the following complete process carefully, I believe many beginner don’t know how to start or the entire process. We believe that our professional install manual can help you save time and make you a paddle tennis court expert.   Successfully Building and Install top quality Padel tennis club. The following core elements are required. 1. Let professional construction workers or builder a qualified concrete floor. Need outdoor waterproof 100A distribution box. 2. Choose best padel court manufacturers from China. 3. Professional installation technology and processes.   Step 1: How to Building a Concrete Foundation Floor for a Court ?   The concrete base floor determines the quality of the entire padel club. If the concrete floor is overall tilted or of poor quality, it will directly affect the quality of the padel courts. We recommend that it be built by professional builders according to the dimensions of professional drawings.   1.The size of the paddle tennis court is 20 meters long and 10 meters wide. The recommended size of the concrete foundation floor of a court is 21 meters long and 11 meters wide. The overall thickness of the concrete foundation floor is more than 15cm. At the same time, the concrete foundation is equipped with steel bars with a diameter of 12 mm, and the spacing between the steel bars is 20 cm. 2. It is recommended that the concrete floor of the padel stadiums should be 15 cm higher than the surrounding ground. This will facilitate drainage. The paddle tennis court will have no water accumulation and will have a longer service life. If the court is filled with water and moisture for a long time, it is easy to damage the artificial turf, and it is also easy for the steel and screws in contact with the ground to rust. 3. If the concrete foundation of the court is the same height as the surrounding areas, it is recommended to have a drainage system in place. Keep your court dry for long time. 4. Key core: The entire concrete foundation of the court must be on the same horizontal line. If the foundation tilts, it will directly cause the entire padel court to tilt, and the glass can not be installed. 5. The surface of the concrete floor should be flat and smooth. If the ground is uneven and rough, the padel artificial grass will be damaged. Will shorten the service life of artificial turf. 6. Because there are LED lights in the padel stadiums, it is basically necessary to consider layout of electric wire in advance. Also consider electric wire safety. 7. If two courts are installed at the same time, the distance between the court and the court gate should be at least 2 meters. Too close distance will affect players' playing. 8. It is recommended to install resting chairs and sun umbrellas outside the stadium to facilitate spectators to rest and watch the game.   The construction and installation of a padel court requires about 5-6 workers at the same time.   Step 2: How to choose the best Padel Tennis Court Manufacturers ?      The quality of  courts affects safety and service life. You should choose top quality suppliers.    If it rains outdoors, you should consider the quality of the raw materials. Poor quality can easily rust, rot, and is unsafe.    The quality of raw materials is the core element of a high-quality paddle tennis court.    If it is installed outdoors, it is recommended to use the following raw materials.   1. Metal structure of the court: Because the padel tennis court has 18 pieces of glasses, and the glass is very heavy, the metal structure must be scientific, reasonable and stronger to be able to bear the weight of the glass. Metal structures used outdoors should use standard hot-dip galvanized steel pipes so that they will not rust or rot when exposed to rain for a long time outdoors. If black iron is used for steel pipes in metal structures, they will begin to rust and rot after 2 years, which is very dangerous. If the outdoor wind force is below level 8, you can consider the columns size to be 80*80*3mm or 100*100*3mm. The thickness of the steel pipe must be the standard 3 mm thickness. Otherwise, the outdoor wind load resistance capacity will be affected. Some small factories in order to reduce costs and use steel pipes with a thickness of 2 mm or 2.5mm, which will directly affect outdoor safety. If the outdoor wind is greater than level 8 or there are frequent super hurricanes, it is recommended that the columns size be 120*120*3mm or 120*120*4mm. Only in this way can sufficient resistance to hurricanes be ensured. The mesh fence also uses hot-dip galvanized wire to avoid rust and rot. The diameter of the wire mesh should be 4 mm, and the hole spacing of the wire mesh should not be big than 50*50 mm, otherwise it will affect the overall firmness. The wire mesh will deform after long-term use. Affects the paddle tennis experience. If the raw material of the wire mesh is black wire mesh, after the surface of the wire mesh has been hit by a tennis ball for long time, the plastic spray layer or paint on the surface will fall off, and it will soon rust and rot after 2 years. The welding and surface treatment of the metal structure are very important. They must be finely polished and rust removed, and then sprayed with high-quality outdoor powder. In this way, the powder has stronger adsorption force and will not fall off after long-term use. After the metal structure is sprayed and cooled, it must be packed in time to avoid collision damage. At the same time, waterproof outer packaging should be used.   2. Glass is most important raw material for the padel courts, and high-quality 12mm thickness tempered glass must be used because players will frequently hit the glass. Glass involves the safety of players and spectators. Each piece of glass in a paddle tennis court has 10 countersunk holes, and the drilling technology requires very high standards. You must purchase glass produced by high-quality big factory. The glass holes produced by small family workshops are prone to cracking. Glass with a thickness of 10 mm is not strong enough. Affect safety.   3. The quality of padel artificial turf directly affects the service life and comfort of playing . The raw material of artificial turf grass must be PE, because PE grass is soft and comfortable, and the playing experience is very good. Do not use the PP grass yarn, because the PP grass yarn is relatively hard and uncomfortable when playing. Whether the artificial turf  adhesive is SBR or PU adhesive are also can use. Similar quality. However, when the outdoor temperature is higher than 46 degrees, it is recommended to use PU Backing artificial turf . because the artificial turf will shorten and become softer after thermal expansion and contraction at high temperatures. There is a gap between the artificial turf and the glass on the ground, but it will rebound because of the soft PU adhesive. Shorten or restore to original size. different quality of artificial turf will be different price.  Following parameters grass can use: PE grass yarn, grass yarn height 10-13 mm, 3/16, DTEX: 9000 or above, Stitch: 250-300 needles,and density between 52000-63000. It’s just that the experience of playing and lifetime is different. But it does not affect use.     4. LED lights must be outdoor waterproof grade IP65 and must be from major brands. In this way, the service life will be longer, and the LED lights must be designed to be anti-vertigo, otherwise it will affect playing padel games at night.   5. Screw and accessories must be made of 304 stainless steel for outdoor use, so they will not rust or rot when exposed to rain for long time, and are safe and reliable. The link blocks of the glass must also be made of 304 stainless steel, because the glass is very heavy. If the glass link pieces get rusty and rotten, the glass will fall and cause injuries to the players. very dangerous. If the screws and links are made of black iron, they will rust and rot after 2 years, it impossible to fix the entire padel court, causing safety hazards. Some small factories use the Fake 304 stainless steel screws, which may cause safety hazards.   Step 3.  How to install a padel court ?    The installation of the Padel Courts is very important and involves a lot of details and technology.   It is best to have a professional team complete the installation of the courts. It can also be completed by yourself if you are a beginner. Please follow our installation instructions and sequence below.   Step 1: Make sure the concrete foundation is overall flat, the ground surface is smooth, and there are no cracks or depressions. Then use a level instrument to check whether the whole thing is on the same level. A level instrument should be used throughout the installation process to check the level of the frame. Do not cause the frame to tilt.   Step 2: Before installation, mark straight lines on the ground to ensure that all columns are installed on the same straight line to avoid tilting of the overall metal frame.   Step 3: Open the package of the column. Remember: do not open all the packages at the same time. If you use column A now, open package A. Do not open package B at the same time, because this will cause damage and dust to the surface of the uninstalled column. Open the package to avoid damaging the surface paint with sharp blades.   Step 4: First fix the corner columns, then install the upper and lower glass beams, and install and fix the metal frame of the entire glass (not install the glass)   Step 5: Install the LED lights and lamp posts. The sequence is: Now install the LED lights and wires on the light poles on the ground, and then install the entire lamp post on the ground. It is recommended that the electrical wiring be put into the steel tube of the lamp post.   Step 6: installation and fix the mesh frame columns and mesh frame for padel courts. If you need to install mesh frame B now, open the B package. Do not open all the packages at the same time to avoid surface damage.   Step 7: installation the glass. This step is very important to prevent the glass from breaking and at the same time ensure that the glass does not tilt after installation.         Glass installation sequence: 1. First attach the EVA rubber shock-absorbing strip, and place the EVA strip between the glass and the pillar columns. It can protects the glass. 2. Use suction cups and tools to move the glass close to the column. Each piece of glass requires 6 workers to install at the same time. It will be safe. 3. After checking the position of the glass hole, fix the screws and rubber pads. The bottom of the glass must be protected by a rubber strip. Avoid breakage. Then fix the glass link block. Just tighten the screws that fix the glass. Do not overtighten the screws, as this may cause the glass holes to crack.   Step 8:  Installation Padel Court Artificial Turf:   Because the turf is compressed and packed in rolls, the surface of the turf will have creases and deformations after long-term transportation. Before installing the artificial turf, open the grass in advance and lay it flat on the flat ground for 3 days. after 3 days then begin to install artificial turf . This makes the artificial turfs moother and more beautiful. It must be installed and cut according to the professional drawings provided by the artificial turf manufacturer. Never cut the length of the turf arbitrarily, otherwise it will cause a shortage of artificial turf size and can not be used. This point is very important. Installing padel turf requires the use of turf-specific glue. Glue must be used between artificial turf gaps and splices.    Step 10: Spread 80-100 mesh quartz sand on the padel artificial grass. 1 court requires about 850-1000 kgs of quartz sand. Most customers choose white quartz sand. Quartz sand should be laid evenly as soon as possible.   Step 11: Install the net posts and tennis net.   If you follow our above professional experience , we believe you as a beginner can also complete the Construction and Installation of your Padel Court with high quality.
