Before COVID…

Before the Covid pandemic, the average cost of a structure of padel was €30 excluding tax. Count €000 excluding VAT for the structure and the track (foundation and playing surface).

If it looks like a city stadium (surface, rigid surroundings, etc.), a football pitch padel is not one. The practice requires having specific equipment (racket, ball) and acquiring a minimum of know-how.

The glass walls, the gratings, the ground and the net must be protected from jostling, inappropriate uses, malevolent acts. These reasons make the lands of padel cannot be opened for free access and that they require permanent animation and supervision
