Richard Hall – Smith is the Owner, Co-founder and director of GoPadelUK
“After a successful career on the real tennis pro tour I found the sport of padel in 2016, from the moment I played the sport I knew this was a game I wanted to bring to the UK. I successfully launched the club at Prested Hall, after proving the model I decided the next step was to set up my own club encompassing all the wonderful aspects of the sport in my own club. Park Drive in Maldon was the perfect location to launch a ‘proper padel club’ where all the aspects of padel are on offer.
I take a lot of pride in my playing, coaching and event running, I have competed in events across the UK and Spain and continue to try and rise through the national rankings. I have coached across the UK and Europe and I’m always keen to learn from more experienced coaches and feed that knowledge back to the UK players. I have also run successful events across the UK and Spain this includes launching our own tour of events, we have now successfully merged our events with the national governing body as the continue to thrive. Look forward to continuing to improve as a player and climb up the rankings, continue to grow as a coach, run bigger and better events and finally launch more Go Padel clubs across the UK!”
Go padel Beginnings
The Padel club at Park Drive officially opened August 27th 2018.
The area was an abandoned single tennis court with a small run off. With some slight additional ground works the area was transformed into three state of the art, premium glass courts. The courts were distributed by Panel creations a highly repuatble Spanish court construction company that have produced high quality courts for installation all over the world.
Go padel Community
The courts are attached to Park Drive squash & health club, this famous squash club was the perfect location to add padel too, friendly members with a real community feel.
We are lucky enough to be yards away from ‘Maldon promenade park’ which is the second largest tourist attraction in Essex, this not only gives us a wonderful location but means we are perfectly placed for people to see this wonderful sport!
We also have a centre in Brentwood Essex and more in the pipeline for this year.
Go Padel Plans
We now boast over regular 450 players of all ages and abilities, and we have some fantastic plans coming together for this year.
We will keep you posted…
