Padel in Battersea: The Lowdown

Throughout the summer, the park’s open-air Padel courts will be available for play. For those eager to continue their Padel experience beyond Battersea Park, additional courts are available at the Battersea Sports Centre.

Padel, a sport originating from Latin America, is gaining popularity across London and the UK. It offers a unique fusion of tennis and squash, drawing interest from sports enthusiasts of all ages and backgrounds. Its accessibility, being easier to play compared to tennis and squash, along with its compact court size, makes it ideal for urban environments like London.

Padel’s rising profile is evident with endorsements from notable figures such as tennis legend Rafael Nadal and football stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos. Operating hours at both Battersea venues cater to local schedules, offering slots from early morning to late evening on weekdays and extended hours on weekends.

The pricing structure is designed to be inclusive, with off-peak hours available at a reasonable rate. Equipment such as Padel bats and balls are provided, although players are welcome to bring their own.

For those unfamiliar with the sport, Padel is played in doubles on an enclosed court with walls, similar to a small tennis court. Players use solid paddles to hit a pressurized ball, following a scoring system akin to tennis.

To give people a taste of the sport, the Battersea Park Millennium Arena is hosting an Open Day on April 20th, offering free bookable slots with coaching sessions and free play opportunities.
