Every month, clubs of padel open in Europe. We could even say weekly! But project leaders are often faced with a problem: lack of space, especially indoors.
Land is expensive, especially in large cities. We must then try to optimize the little space we get to try to offer a maximum of services to the players while preserving the economic health of the structure.
How to put a maximum of pitches of padel on the same site?
Padel Tolosa Montauban and Conca Sport have opted for a solution that seems very interesting: paste the grounds of padel on one side.
Clearly, two fields of padel are glued and thus have certain structures in common. Note that in the case of Padel Montauban, Conca Sport explains that for “Optimize the space dedicated to padel, we have installed 2 x 2 courts united by one side. Each of them has its own windows and its own mesh. ”
Each of the two fields of padel therefore still has its own windows and grilles.
Our opinion :
The land builder of padel and the chain Padel Tolosa managed to put 4 tracks of padel and even 1 badminton court on a site that could hardly have done better. A very good idea, because it allows to increase the offer in Montauban. Players can only be happy with this idea.
In the game, awkward situations seem relatively infrequent, since each field has its own windows and fences.
On the other hand, pushing this concept until the realization of padel with windows and grilles in common could have a negative effect on the game.
An idea and a way of doing things that could one day become widespread? What do you think ?
