PADEL – An add-on or a threat for tennis?

At first glance, you might think that due to the simplicity of PADEL and the high fun factor, current tennis players suddenly switch over to Padel.

We can reassure you that after 25 years of development in Spain this has not happened.

Tennis players and Tennis coaches

As a rule, tennis coaches and players with a good level remain and those who want to diversify their abilities or may not be able to continue with tennis for different reasons will find in Padel the perfect alternative to keep playing even with people who are not familiarized with tennis. This sport makes all this possible.

At this point also highlighting that former tennis coaches and players (professional or not professional) have significant advantages, as they can handle the racket much better than others and usually develop very fast to very good Padel players. In the end, they end up dominating both: Tennis and Padel

Tennis business

The essential contribution of Padel in all tennis businesses is:
The tennis business is smartly expanding the target groups. 

  • New people can join your business due to the fact that Padel is very easy to learn and people have fun from the beginning. No need to have a tennis background to have fun with Padel.
  • You generate the option to keep the existing members longer (fewer dropouts) because you have now the option to offer an alternative.
  • Both target groups train in your club and there is no need to look elsewhere for the alternative. Your club has it. 

This is a very interesting, innovative and attractive approach to keep your tennis business growing.
