Go Padel UK padel Centre
We opened our first UK padel centre in September 2018, after launching our three-court premium club we have had huge success attracting members to the club. After just six months of opening we boast 200 players, this includes 40 junior players (under 16). We are in the process of adding a café/bar to the venue to maximise the customer experience for the events. Our aim is to continue to build and manage successful padel centres across the UK and eventually Europe.
UK Padel events
We are the number one company for running UK events, our events are diverse and combine the social side with the competitive element. We run up to 5 events per month with players from across the UK coming to compete. We want to continue to grow our events, upping the prizes as well as the number of entries in each event.
We also run several events overseas, these include tournaments and coaching weekends, Go Padel UK have a special relationship with La Manga Club, Murcia, Spain. La Manga club is one of the most prestigious sports venues in Spain and Go Padel UK run closely alongside them to promote and produce many successful padel events each year.
Go Padel UK are officially working alongside two major padel brands to offer a range of clothing and equipment to the members.
In time we would like to develop this concept and offer this service to the growing UK padel market.

We are holding our first major open event which boasts the biggest prize pot for an event in the UK!
Because of the prize money we have been lucky enough to attract some of the top players from across the UK and Europe to come and play.
We have also managed to get players from the ‘WPT’ which is the world padel tour only the elite padel players all over the world take part in this.
We are looking for some additional sponsorship for this event
The sponsorship will go towards advertising banners, prize funds and prizes for the event.
This event will be running yearly, and we already have a verbal agreement with the global padel governing FIP who will recognize our event for the 2020 calender.
