Padel is now in Somerset West
What is padel?
The World’s Fastest Growing Sport is now in South Africa, but what exactly is it and why is it so immensely popular around the globe?
PADEL IS... FUN SOCIAL ADDICTIVE AWESOME FAST THRILLING ACCESSIBLE PULSATING FOR EVERYONE!
Padel is a game that can be described as a mixture of tennis and squash, and is played by four players on a court that is surrounded by glass walls and mesh fencing. It is easy to pick-up compared to the more traditional racket sports, and one could easily grasp the fundamentals of the game in one session. The gameplay and scoring is identical to tennis, with the key differences being the glass walls that form part of the game.
Padel is an extremely social game that you can play with friends and family of all ages, and the rate of progression is generally quite rapid. Because the game is played in a tightly enclosed space it is fast and moves at an exciting pace with matches normally finishing within an hour.
The Padel Hub is the final result of a dream that started 4 years ago, when padel was still very much in its infancy in South Africa. In partnership with Padel South Africa and Padel Projects we have been working tirelessly in the research and development of our very own proudly South African manufactured padel courts. We have made sure that no stone was left unturned in the pursuit of making world class padel courts fit for some of the most beautiful settings in the world. Our love for this game is your guarantee that you will experience padel the way it should be played. So what are you waiting for…
The Padel Hub – Lourensford is one of the first padel clubs in South Africa, and one of the most beautiful in the world! Nestled in the middle of the world-famous Lourensford Estate in Somerset West, the courts are surrounded by some of the most stunning mountain ranges in South Africa, award-winning vineyards, and are amongst a garden that truly has to be seen to be believed. With a range of activities in the estate other than just padel, this is a full-day experience for the whole family!
