Padel Magazine - How did you discover the Padel ?
We first heard of the 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 add Padel in your structures?
By 2012, we had found a location that could accommodate Padel, but the project could not be completed.
Today we are happy to be able to offer the Padel in our new complex in Servon / Brie Comte Robert.
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.
Le Padel requires a high ceiling height, while in Noisy-le-Grand we only have 6 meters high ceilings.
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 strength of Padel is to be immediately familiar. It takes up 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 players of Padel ?
Le Padel is an attractive and very playful sport.
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 primary ambition remains to introduce the discipline. In France, the Padel for the moment has only had pseudonyms "federation" or "league" of padel which have been more of the brakes for this sport. For a short year, however, padel has been in real development. With the arrival of the FFT, it is a confirmation that this sport is more and more attractive. Hopefully things are going in the right direction.
Then we intend to offer courses and offers dedicated solely to the padel.
How does the Padel in your club in Servon?
We have a rather positive return of this little-known sport.
There are many curious people. It's a good sign.
