Padel: the trendy new sport taking Europe by storm
Europe’s fashionable new pastime is a racket sport: a high-speed mixture of squash, badminton, and tennis, played by four players in a cage made of safety glass, the walls of which are incorporated in the game. Padel is typically an indoor sport, but is also suitable for outdoor play. Although it is still relatively new to Germany, padel is rapidly growing in popularity.
Hard & fast
The surface of a padel court is usually made of synthetic turf, which is installed on a hard substrate and sprinkled with fine quartz sand. However, padel can also be played on porous concrete, cement, or other synthetic materials, provided that the surface enables consistent ball-bouncing behaviour. As a result, the ball is constantly in motion, flying from opponent to opponent at incredible speed. For experienced players, this results in relatively long and often spectacular playing sequences. Polytan already has suitable surfaces in its product range, including our synthetic turf systems that are specially developed for tennis courts and hockey pitches, as well as those designed for multisport purposes.
Products for padel
Poligras SuperPlay, our sand-filled synthetic turf with a soft, pleasant feel and extremely high resistance, not only reduces the risk of injury, but makes the high-speed sport of padel spectacular to watch. Its high filament density ensures a realistic feel, rivalling that of an unfilled pitch.
Our unfilled turf system Poligras TeamPlay also offers the perfect substrate for padel, as it generally facilitates a fast-paced, precise game with its extremely thick and uniform multidirectional surface – and all entirely without sand. PreciTex technology guarantees exceptional turf volume and extreme durability.
