Padel Magazine - How did you discover Padel?
We first heard about Padel in 2012.
This discipline is little known in France but we realized very quickly that it had as good a future as the 5 Foot.
How long have you wanted to put padel in your structures?
As early as 2012, we had found a site that could accommodate padel pitches, but the project was not successful.
Today, we are pleased to be able to offer the Padel in our new Servon / Brie Comte Robert complex.
Just like our other sports, our fields are open 7j / 7.
Why not have it done in Noisy-le-Grand, the other Park Futbol?
After a market study, we realized that our site of Noisy-le-Grand was not adapted to the practice of this sport.
The Padel requires a high ceiling, while in Noisy-le-Grand we have only 6 meters high ceiling.
So to guarantee optimal quality of play to our customers, we preferred to wait to open our new center to offer this new discipline.
The Padel's strength is to be immediately familiar. It takes the strengths of racket sports.
That's why it's the perfect complement to our other racket sports: Badminton and Squash.
In our new Servon / Brie Comte Robert center, we also offer 5 Fut and 2 football (Jorkyball).
The choice and quality of our services are our priorities.
All our offers are on our site www.parkfutbol.fr
Are you Padel players?
Padel is an attractive sport and very playful.
I was immediately curious to try this sport.
From the time of his installation at Servon / BrieComteRobert, I started to learn this discipline.
It's also easier to talk to your customers about a sport you know and practice.
What are your ambitions around Padel?
The first ambition remains to discover the discipline. In France, the Padel has for the moment only pseudo "federation" or "league" padel that have been more obstacles for this sport. For a short year, the padel is however in real development. With the arrival of the FFT, it is a confirmation that this sport is more and more attractive. Let's hope things go in the right direction.
Then we intend to offer courses and offers dedicated solely to the padel.
How does Padel work in your Servon club?
We have a rather positive return of this little-known sport.
There are many curious people. It's a good sign.
