Padel tennis courts

There are many reasons why people around the world are falling in love with Padel. This social racquets sport is quick to learn, simple to adapt to different fitness levels - and, most importantly, hugely enjoyable to play. It takes place on a smaller court than tennis, but the fast pace of the game means you can still get an excellent workout, and it's suitable for all the family to play together. At David Lloyd Clubs, we make it easy to enjoy Padel.

Indoor Padel courts

Some clubs have indoor Padel courts, which means you can play all year round. These are framed in Perspex or wire, so you can bounce the ball off the sides of the court.

Outdoor Padel courts

At some clubs, we have outdoor Padel courts, giving you the chance to play in the fresh air. As with the indoor courts, these are framed in Perspex or wire for those squash-style wall shors (and to help prevent your ball from going astray!).

Getting started with Padel

Whether you're new to the game or want to brush up your skills, some clubs offer Padel social sessions. Often, these are divided into different experience levels, from beginner to advanced. The sessions are a great way to learn Padel and meet other members. You'll also find junior club sessions at some clubs, so our younger members can also pick up Padel.

What equipment do I need?

Padel is played with solid bats that have holes rather than strings. The balls are essentially smaller, low-compression tennis balls - that means they're lighter, so the pace of play is usually faster. You can wear most types of sport shoe for Padel, but it's a good idea to choose a pair with decent grip on the soles.

It's simple to book Padel courts using the David Lloyd Clubs app, available to all members. Navigate to the 'book' section, select 'book a court' and then select Padel as the sport. You will then be able to see which times and dates are available, and make your selection.
