The Global study Padel Report conducted by Playtomic taught us that 111 tracks of padel in the world were rising every week in 2023. But in the end, which countries have the most ski slopes? padel ? Well, the report gives us the answer to that question!

Without surprise, spain climbs to first place on the podium, with no less than 16.126 tracks at the end of 2023. Our trans-Pyrenees neighbors are several years ahead in terms of padel, compared to the rest of the globe. However, a country has positioned itself just behind Spain, becoming its historic runner-up.

On the second step of the podium, with no less than 8.347 lands, we find Italy ! The padel is experiencing a real boom among the transalpines and much faster development than in France. It is therefore completely normal that we find Italy in second place in this ranking.

To finish this podium, it is indeed the France which is placed behind Spain and Italy. However, there are far fewer tracks of padel : only 2.179. However, France is the only country having built more than padel in 2023 than in 2022 (474 in 2022 for 673 in 2023).

Note that Sweden, a true 3rd nation (at least) in terms of tracks, was not included in the report. We will come back to the reason in a future paper.

La Belgium and Netherlands are just behind France, with respectively 1.763 et 1.733 tracks. Note that the USA are positioned in 11th place in the ranking, with only 454 courses in the territory.

This proves that the padel still has a lot to do to establish itself sustainably throughout the globe!
