It is often pointed out that France is behind its neighbors. THE padel in Spain is hors concours and in Italy, the number of tracks explodes all over the place. In France, it is true that we tend to observe that the establishment of padel is a little more… winded.

However, this discipline is starting to really take hold and the number of practitioners continues to increase every year. So obviously, when we see the number of licensees and the number of players, we have the impression that there are still some areas missing.

However, Roman Taupin de Padelonomics announces this: “It’s official, we have passed the 2000 pitch mark. padel in France.” Great news for the padel since in 2017, there were only 491 tracks…


Between 2017 and 2023, the number of tracks padel therefore experienced an evolution of 311% !

Now, with the wind in its sails, the padel will he be able to go further? The new step would be to reach 3.000 tracks in mainland France and Overseas. Between 2022 and 2023, a little more of 500 courts were built. It would therefore be necessary double the construction this year to achieve this goal.

But projects, It's everywhere. We think of 4Padel who wants to reach 250 tracks by 2025 (for 120 in 2023). Or the project on the Island of Puteaux, which notably had dethroned Jamel Debbouze.

And you what do you think ? Could France count 3000 tracks of padel by the end of 2024 ? To your predictions…
