Until 2020, there was uncertainty about whether to cover the padel courts.

Today, those who have not covered (unless they are resorts or seasonal beach establishments) or will not cover are destined to see their profits undergo a significant revolution.

Wind, rain, cold, and extreme heat are the reasons why most padel players prefer a covered court. There are covers of all qualities and prices on the market; however, it is certain that the better the insulation, the more comfortable the gameplay, making the club more attractive. In our modest opinion, the answer to the title question is definitely yes!

Asking about the cost of a padel court is like inquiring about the price of a car; there are cars for €15,000, just as there are those for €100,000 and beyond. They all have four wheels, an engine, and a steering wheel; the difference lies in quality, performance, and safety.

The same principle applies to padel courts: there are those priced at €15,000 and others at €35,000, yet they are composed of the same elements – tubular structures, nets, glass, synthetic turf. The distinction lies in the quality of the synthetic turf, the safety of the glass used, and the longevity of the metal structure. These elements determine the success of your center.

It’s not so much about how much a court costs but rather the value it provides. Today, with multiple clubs in the same area, customers opt for more performance, aesthetically pleasing courts with additional amenities at the same play cost.

If you have a warehouse where the flooring can support a padel court, the average cost is around €25,000 + VAT, including installation. For outdoor courts, you need a foundation with prices ranging from €10,000 to €16,000 (depending on the area) and a certified fixed cover, starting at around €40,000 per court.


Padel Corporation will guide you through the entire process, from design to the realization of your sports center, always prioritizing safety and providing all legally required certifications, including the TUV SUD certificate, ensuring you can play safely and rest easy.

Padel is currently the trendiest sport, highly connected to social media, and experiencing exponential growth in Italy and worldwide. In Italy alone, the number of courts has increased from less than 1000 in 2019 to over 8000 in 2023. We anticipate that at full capacity, there will be over 20,000 courts in Italy.

There is ample opportunity for those interested in investing in this fantastic sport, possibly unique globally in its accessibility to all players. People can play and enjoy it from day one, which is why many are drawn to and passionate about Padel.

The economic return of a Padel court ranges from 2,000 to 10,000 euros per month, a wide range depending on various factors:

– The quality of installed courts (texturized synthetic surface, safety glass, rust-resistant zinc structure).
– The services offered by the facility (comfortable changing rooms, presence or absence of a restaurant, bar, pool, gym, on-site shop, high-level instructors, secure internal parking, children’s play area, winter and especially summer air conditioning, tournaments supported by high-level sponsors, etc.).
– The region and city area where the facility is located (if in Cagliari, the average game might cost 7/8 euros, while in Milan, it could go up to 20 euros per person).
– The presence or absence of a cover allowing the facility to be active 100% of the time, regardless of weather conditions.
– The quality of management (managing sports facilities requires professional skills).
– The presence or absence of strong competitors in the area (opening a facility with 2 courts in an area where there are already 2 others with 8/10 courts certainly poses a challenge but is not impossible. Cases are not rare where smaller clubs with 5-star services are winning over mega-centers where quality is scarce, and at the same price, customers always choose the more comfortable club).

The more these variables are considered by the newly established facility, and the quicker the investment pays off, the higher the profits will be.

Il padel è considerato ad oggi uno dei migliori investimenti per chi ha dei risparmi e vorrebbe intraprendere attività imprenditoriale e lo è anche e soprattutto per quei centri sportivi che hanno vari campi da tennis non più remunerativi come in passato.

L’investimento rientra spesso nell’arco del primo anno, al massimo entro il secondo.

Una nota fabbrica di racchette da tennis ha appena pubblicato i dati vendite del 2022 in Spagna (paese europeo più all’avanguardia in questo sport) e le vendite di racchette da Padel sono state il 60% del totale rispetto a quelle da tennis, beach tennis, ecc..ecc…

Potemmo invece dire che è quasi indispensabile farlo per tutti i resort e le strutture ricettive che vogliono offrire un’alternativa sportiva all’interno del loro centro. Ci sono oramai molti clienti che chiedono al momento stesso della prenotazione se la struttura è dotata di campi da padel e la risposta influenza la loro scelta.

Identifying the perfect location for your business is a game-changer, whether it’s an indoor haven like a spacious warehouse or a stylish tensioned structure, or an outdoor oasis like a sports club, open land, a breezy garden, or a beachfront paradise.

When it comes to the indoor vs. outdoor dilemma, the smart money is on constructing indoors, ideally in a warehouse boasting a minimum height of 7 meters (and 9/10 meters for that extra wow factor). Why? Well, the existing drivable subfloor cuts costs, and an indoor setup means year-round availability, potential profit spikes with summertime AC, and a game-friendly shield from wind and sun.

Throw in reserved, fenced parking, a forward-thinking touch like electric vehicle charging stations, and swanky changing rooms – the recipe for success.

If no existing gem of a building pops up, outdoor possibilities like revamping a sports club or creating magic on industrial land come into play.

Enter the HAN-GAR (visit www.han-gar.com), an eco-chic wooden wonder with sandwich paneling that not only rivals warehouses but boasts the cool factor. With rooftop solar panels, you’re not just offsetting costs – you’re offering a climate-controlled padel experience, a rarity that turns heads.


Outdoor dreams? Think resort courts, beach bashes, or park perfection – where a roof might cramp your style. Seasonal vibe? Open-air courts can be your canvas, seamlessly blending with nature’s beauty.


Now, when you’ve committed to the indoor court brilliance, laser focus on location is the secret sauce. City chic or countryside charm? Accessible to traffic flow or nestled near buzzing universities and factories? Beat the competition game by choosing wisely – your spot can make or break the padel paradise.

More and more customers are asking us not only for paddle tennis courts but for concrete assistance in finding services that meet their needs, such as schools and instructors to integrate into their facilities. These instructors should help grow the audience for those approaching this sport and foster loyalty through individual and group lessons, clinics, family days, and corporate events. This is because, as they teach in Argentina, paddle tennis is and should be about inclusion and enjoyment.

Manu Moreira’s Fusion Padel Team (WPT player with 32 years of experience in paddle tennis) now represents one of the most professional schools in the Padel sector in Italy.

Fusion is a company dedicated to consulting and developing paddle tennis clubs and collaborates with Argentine coaches of 1st and 2nd category with WTP points. These experts are not only skilled in teaching but also in the overall sports development of the club.

In collaboration with Ptr Italia, one of the most prestigious schools in the world, we offer clubs that request it consultation on the proper management of their center and valuable assistance in initiating technical and sports management

Have you decided to invest in paddle tennis and would like to finance the operation without affecting your liquidity? From now on, it’s possible. One of the undoubtedly most advantageous options is to finance a significant portion of the initial costs, spreading them over the first 2, 3, or 5 years.

Small installments that can be easily repaid with the proceeds and that will allow the entrepreneur to preserve liquidity for other purposes. Moreover, for not too high amounts, Padel Corporation offers the possibility, through a special agreement with a leading brokerage company, to finance up to 50% of the amount over 10 months at zero interest rate (subject to approval by the financial company).

It often happens that, having to deal with both the courts and the covering, the investment exceeds initial expectations. Instead of forgoing covering (a choice, in our opinion, not foresighted), the best solution is to finance a portion of the investment in small monthly installments.

Do you want to know how much the installment could be based on your expected investment?

The Third Sector Reform has recently come into effect, and as much as managing a sports club may seem simple, it is, in fact, quite complex. Often, our clients seek advice on how to best manage their organization, whether it’s better to opt for an ASD (Sports Association) or SSD (Sports Promotion Association).

While we excel in building courts, we honestly lack the expertise to provide advice on such an important and delicate matter. However, thanks to the synergies developed through our work and with the assistance of the President of the Jesi CNA, Francesco Barchiesi, we have the opportunity to introduce a new and important partner of ours. This partner specializes in managing sports organizations, bringing two decades of experience and, most importantly, expertise in the 2023 reform.

Before embarking on this entrepreneurial activity, it is advisable to consult with a trusted advisor to assess the feasibility of the project in the chosen location. Additionally, seek out a local expert, such as an engineer, architect, or surveyor, to check for any bureaucratic constraints before signing lease contracts. Ensure that the expert has prepared all the necessary documentation to be submitted to the relevant public authorities. Once you have received the green light, you can proceed with selecting reliable suppliers for the courts and, if necessary, for the covering.

Always keep in mind the fundamental rule: “The cheapest is the most expensive.” In life and even more so in padel, choosing low-quality materials or poor services can backfire. Customers will prefer high-quality centers, so invest in the best possible experience. Whether you choose Padel Corporation or other successful companies, the important thing is to opt for courts that reflect your expectations as future customers. Good luck with your project!

Your and our responsibility begins the moment an athlete sets foot inside the facility; therefore, everything must be evaluated with the utmost scrupulousness and decided upon without being impulsive. Do you agree?

Just consider for a moment what could happen if an athlete gets injured in your facility. Purchasing a certified product means it has been constructed in compliance with Italian construction regulations. Padel courts, for which there is still no specific regulation, fall under the construction regulation EN1090-1; they must be CE-marked and comply with NTC2018 (technical regulations for construction).


When you purchase a court, you absolutely must obtain:

– CE certificate for the product and identification code
– NTC1028 certification
– EN1090-1 certification
– User and maintenance manual for the court (mandatory even if you’re buying a blender)
– Certified installation according to the rules of the art


At Padel Corporation, we have always strived to improve courts with safety in mind. Although we were convinced, we were doing things properly, we turned to a third-party entity considered the strictest European inspection agency, TÜV SÜD, which, in February 2023, after a nearly two-year process, declared our courts SAFE. This proudly makes Padel Corporation the world’s first company to have its courts certified by a third party.

So, in conclusion, purchasing a certified padel court means understanding that the client’s responsibility doesn’t end when the court is installed and the paperwork is filed; rather, it’s from that day onward that civil and criminal responsibility begins and lasts if those courts remain assembled.

Don’t make a mistake! For your own good and your customers’, choose only and exclusively certified courts.
