On year 2017, we have not reached the limit by far. It was a spectacular year in terms of the number of Padel licenses. There are close to 70,000 registered player licenses in the Spanish Padel Association (68,362). This is 10,000 more licenses than in the previous year 2016, when the year ended with 58,333.
The increase in 2017 is 17% and represents the best result in the last 5 years. Only in the years 2013 (14.2%) and 2014 (13.7%) a similar boom was observed. In addition, there were only 4% more licenses last year than in the previous year.
Even after 25 years, the enthusiasm for Padel continues to increase and enjoys spectacular growing rates.
Although this represents general growth throughout the area (the sum of player licenses in all 14 regions), the positive development is characterized by two factors.
The first factor is the exponential increase in licenses in the regional Padel Association in Catalonia (an increase of 28.8% and can already register 16,880 licenses), which strengthens its supremacy year after year.
The unprecedented increase in the Galician Padel Association, which has risen to 915 licenses in 2016 to the 5,387 licenses in 2017.
This is a great result and even after 25 years the enthusiasm for Padel continues to increase and enjoys spectacular growing rates.
