Onside PR has joined forces with UK Padel Courts to bring the world’s fastest growing sport to Britain.
UK Padel Courts will officially launch in January with the ambition of becoming UK’s Premier Padel Court provider.
Onside PR will provide ongoing marketing and PR support to UK Padel Courts and its two founders, Cheshire entrepreneurs Jordan Ingoe and Gareth Evans.
They will become the first British based business to provide a complete ‘cradle-to-grave’ Padel court installation provider – as the sport rises in popularity.
Director Gareth Evans, said: “This is a hugely exciting moment for Padel in the UK, I believe we are about to see a Padel explosion in the coming years.
“It is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK and yet, it has barely scratched the surface.
“In Spain there are said to be more than 20,000 Padel courts with an estimated six million players according to the LTA – compared to around 250 courts in the UK with around 90,000 people playing.
“In fact, I think we are still at the stage where the vast majority of people would have no idea what Padel is, but that will change. And quickly.
“We want to be able to service that demand and will launch in the New Year with the sole ambition of becoming the UK’s leading provider of Padel courts.”
Padel Court Installation
UK Padel Courts will provide clients with a complete Padel court installation service from site surveys, planning applications, court design and technical drawings.
Their British based team will carry out the ground works – specific to Padel Courts – before supplying and installing industry best in class Padel courts.
“Coincidentally I started playing Padel towards the end of last year and I absolutely love it, so to be able to combine business with pleasure is fantastic,” explained Onside PR MD James Fletcher.
“This a sport which has incredible growth potential and UK Padel Courts will lead the charge for both private and commercial clients as its popularity grows.
“It will be an honour to work with the team and help to tell their story whilst promoting Padel as a sport literally anyone can play.
“I’ve been hugely impressed with the professionalism and ambition demonstrated by both Jordan and Gareth and the UK Padel Courts team and I’m looking forward to helping them onwards with their journey.”
Padel is a mix between tennis and squash. It is played in doubles on a court, about a third the size of a tennis court, surrounded by walls of glass and a metal mesh.
The Padel racquet, or ‘bats’ as the Spanish prefer, are short and stringless and made of an elastic surface with holes, whilst the ball is very similar to a tennis ball.
Players serve underarm from waist height. The ball must land in court without first hitting the metal mesh or glass, but from then on, providing it bounces on the floor first, can be played off the side or back walls.
The sport, believed to have been invented in Mexico in the 1960s is now the fastest-growing sport in the world. It can be played by anyone, regardless of age or ability.
