Pay attention to the conformity of your padel courts, but also to the space between the padel courts. In Seville, the padel club Lebrija has been ordered to pay compensation of € 12 plus legal interest since 914 to a player who broke his wrist.
A man has indeed tripped on the padel court. More specifically, the player fell when he entered the field. A 4 cm screw outside the track would have made him lose his balance. Assessment: a broken wrist and post-traumatic sequelae.
If at first instance, the entire request has been rejected. On appeal, the court accepted the player's partial compensation. Indeed, the padel club respected the specifications of the Spanish Padel Federation, but the court preferred to be based on the “technical code of construction” because this screw was not inside the padel court .
Therefore, the screw being estimated on a public space, it is no longer the regulations and standards of the Spanish Federation of Padel that applied there.
A news item which should allow our padel clubs in France to be very careful of screws or objects that could protrude on the field, but also outside and near the field for the safety of the players, but also for the safety of the players. image of the club.
It is recalled that certain screws also around the ground which serve to maintain the structure should be protected by a round cap placed on the screw. It is not compulsory, but it is an additional safety for the ground and the people who use it.
Thanks to our colleagues from Diario de Sevilla for the information.
