What to do to build a padel court?

Building a padel court is an exciting project that requires planning, commitment, and resources, but it can be rewarding and fun for enthusiasts of this growing sport. In this article, we will explore the fundamental steps to successfully build a padel court.

Motivations for opening a padel court

Interest in padel courts is constantly increasing, as enthusiasts often struggle to find available courts to play on.

In Italy, in 2016, there were only 50 padel courts. However, thanks to the growing public demand, by the end of 2022, the number of courts had risen to 7,000.

Despite this increase, the density of courts per inhabitant in Italy is still less than double compared to Spain, a country where this sport has been popular for a longer time. This situation has led to forecasts indicating the need to build an additional 7,000 new padel courts in Italy over the next 5 years to meet the growing demand.


Revenue potential of a padel court

A padel match lasts 90 minutes, with four players paying around 12 euros each. A single court can accommodate up to 5-6 matches per day, although on weekdays it is common for only 2-3 matches to be played.

The maximum annual revenue of a padel court can reach 100,000 euros, but more cautious estimates prefer to consider a turnover of around 40-50,000 euros per year.

As a result, a club with 4 padel courts could generate an annual turnover of around 200,000 euros.

Before starting construction, it is essential to conduct detailed research on local regulations regarding the construction of padel courts in your area. Make sure to obtain all necessary authorizations and permits from the competent authorities. We recommend relying on an expert who has good contacts with your municipality.


If you do not have (which is likely) all the necessary capital, there are various options available.

The second crucial step is to find a suitable location for the court. Look for a sufficiently large area, preferably flat and free of obstacles that could interfere with the game. The standard size of a padel court is about 20 meters long by 10 meters wide, with additional space around to ensure the safety of players.

Once you have identified the area, it’s time for the actual construction of the court. We recommend relying on a company specialized in padel that can provide you with a reliable and durable product.


When you have completed the physical construction of the court, it’s time to provide all the necessary equipment. Purchase high-quality padel rackets, balls, scoreboards, and, if desired, also a speaker system to announce scores and create an engaging atmosphere during events.

Finally, do not forget the importance of the areas surrounding the padel court. Create an area dedicated to spectators with comfortable seating and provide toilets and refreshment points nearby. These small details can make a difference in the overall experience of players and enthusiasts.

In conclusion, building a padel court requires meticulous planning and a careful approach. From researching local regulations to choosing materials and installing equipment, every step is crucial to ensure a functional and attractive padel court. With the right effort and dedication, your padel court could become a reference point for enthusiasts of this fascinating sport.
