UK PADEL: Putting People on a Padel Court

UK PADEL: Putting People on the Padel Court


At UK PADEL our mission is to introduce more people to the growing sport of padel, we believe this is the best sport to engage the widest possible range of people to get exercise, stay health and build community.  Co-founded by Neil Percival and Nick Baker, our journey was born out of a shared frustration with the scarcity of courts. Drawing upon their extensive backgrounds in squash and real tennis, Neil and Nick set out to address this gap by establishing padel courts in Buckinghamshire. The launch of the padel courts at Holmer Green Sports Association in November 2021 marked a significant milestone in our commitment to making padel more accessible.

With little over 350 padel courts in the UK, we are dedicated to positioning padel as an attractive and viable option for physical activity, serious competition, and a whole load of fun besides. Embracing the membership and pay-to-play model, our courts are designed to welcome individuals of all skill levels, encouraging inclusivity. 


At UK PADEL we go beyond creating playing spaces; we are dedicated to cultivating a vibrant community centred around the game of padel and a terrific new location at the golf club to enjoy it in. Join us and our Academy Director Jared Robinson in our mission to make padel an integral part of your active lifestyle, where we can move, connect, and elevate the game together.

This wouldn’t have been possible without the terrific team at The South Buckinghamshire Golf Course, and we want to say a special thanks to Mark Young and his team and Buckinghamshire council for their backing to bring padel to the club.


Don't miss the chance to be among the first to experience padel at UK PADEL at The South Buckinghamshire Golf Course! 


We look forward to welcoming you to our growing padel community.


Best regards,


Neil & Nick

It was good to confirm the competitive juices hadn't frozen in 2023 and were flowing well into 2024 as we had a glorious day of Americano competition on Sunday 7th to kick off the 2024 Americano series in the sunshine.

Great to kick the day of with the new players group and Toby King taking the top spot and the 10 points on offer, seriously impressive and well done to those of you who were playing in some of your first (competitive) matches, we told you it would be relaxed and fun right?! 

Andy Turner took the mid group event by 2 points from Ed Fitch in a seriously good level of padel, played in a great spirit. 

Jack Pounder and Jono Epps took the 10-point top spots in the two editions of the 4.25 plus event. Jack put in an assured performance in the first session, a clear 12 points ahead of Mr americano himself Phil Cornhill with Marc Cooke a few more behind. Jono Epps dug deep into his mind’s eye to scrape off the rust from earlier in the day and deliver a ruthless display of americano point bagging to win by 5 points from an excellent Marcus Paine and a late charging Nick Baker. 

In the words of Jared, this series is going to be a goodie!

February 3rd entries are live for booking and filling up fast, so please sign up and we are looking forward to a lot more competitive fun on court throughout the year. 


Reminder of the monthly competition format: 

- 11-month series running on the first weekend of each month - mixture of Saturdays and Sundays in case people have regular commitments.  Starting on Sun 7th Jan
- ⁠3 divisions: 1-3, 3.25-4.0, 4.25+
- ⁠Initially 8 places per division per month, but we’ll add a second timeslot if needed based on demand
- ⁠As well as monthly kudos for winning and your name in lights, there will be an overall leaderboard with a lovely UK PADEL racket as a prize for the overall winner in each division over the course of the year (and maybe some other prizes too 😎)
- ⁠Your best 7 results over the season will count for the overall leaderboard (allowing for holidays/injuries etc)
- ⁠Each monthly winner will get 10 pts; 2nd 8 pts; 3rd 6 pts; and then 4th-8th 5/4/3/2/1 pts


Nothing but Padel. 


As we bid farewell to 2023, it's time to reflect on a year packed with some great events, community building, and countless moments that have shaped UK Padel this year. From regional tournaments to youth initiatives and coaching milestones, here's a glimpse into the incredible journey we've had together.


LTA Regional Events and Youth Padel Tour


We kicked off the year with a bang, hosting multiple LTA regional events that saw players come from around the area, including many of our members showcasing their skills on the court. The enthusiasm for the sport continues to grow and our players are a testament to the progress that padel has been making around the country. The Youth Padel Tour events, designed to elevate junior padel in the UK, were met with tremendous support, fostering the next generation of padel players. We had almost 20 juniors support the event across 3 tournaments which saw an eventual champion crowned. 


Coaching and Club Champs


Our coaching sessions witnessed significant progress, and it's encouraging to see the skill level of our members on a constant rise. Could next year bring forth even more contenders in the LTA regional tournaments? The Club Champs showcased outstanding performances, and congratulations are in order to all the winners who displayed exceptional sportsmanship and talent.


Community Outreach


Embracing our commitment to spreading the passion of padel, we opened our doors to various communities. Hosting the RAF for their inaugural padel experience was a proud moment, and we're eager to make it an annual tradition. Welcoming tennis clubs, local businesses, and schools not only introduced more people to the sport but also elevated the profile of padel in our area.


Coaching Courses and Live Streaming


We took a proactive approach to knowledge-sharing by hosting our first “transition to padel” coaching course. Coaches enhanced their skills, contributing to the overall development of our players. Live-streaming events like the FIP professional tournament at the National Tennis Centre and our very own County Championships brought the excitement of padel to a broader audience, reinforcing our commitment to growing the sport.


UK Padel County Championships


A highlight that defined our year was hosting the largest padel event in the UK—the UK PADEL County Championships. Almost 200 players from 20+ counties competed, making it a true celebration of padel excellence. To all the players who made this event spectacular, thank you for your unwavering support.


Looking Ahead to 2024


As we eagerly anticipate the new year, we have some exciting plans in store for our members. Get ready for monthly Americanos, where we'll come together to play matches and get to meet other members. Racket testing sessions will give you the chance to explore the latest gear and find the perfect match for your game. Plus, be on the lookout for guest coaches who will bring fresh perspectives and insights to our training sessions.

To our incredible community of players, supporters, and partners, thank you for being an integral part of this remarkable journey. Let's make 2024 a year to remember—full of smashing serves, strategic volleys, and endless fun! Here's to a padel-filled year ahead! 








We’ve all been there. You’ve hit a great volley into the corner, your opponent is panicking but manages to flick the ball up, the ball seems to fly in slow motion through the air, one slow revolution at a time. Your heart rate goes up and your racket goes back, and all thoughts of tactics go out the window – you are going to CRUSH this volley as hard as you can. 


As the winter chill sets in, your padel game may face unique challenges like playing through a few extra layers of clothing or the odd day of damp back-glass. Nevertheless, with the right warm-up routine, you can not only mitigate the cold but also enhance your performance on the court. This week, we'll explore the importance of warm-ups during winter. Plus, we'll equip you with three quick warm-up ideas to ensure you step onto the padel court at your best.


The Importance of Warm-Ups in Winter


The winter months pose specific challenges to athletes, affecting muscle flexibility and increasing the risk of injuries. Studies show that cold weather can reduce blood flow to muscles, making them stiffer and more prone to strains and sprains. In padel, where agility and quick movements are crucial, a proper warm-up becomes even more critical during winter.


Effect of Cold on Muscles:


Research suggests that exposure to cold temperatures leads to vasoconstriction, limiting blood flow to muscles. This reduction in blood flow can result in decreased muscle elasticity and increased susceptibility to injuries.


Optimal Temperature for Performance:


Maintaining an optimal muscle temperature through warm-ups is essential for peak athletic performance. Research highlights that warm muscles contract and relax more efficiently, leading to improved overall function. 


3 Warm-Up Ideas for Winter Padel Sessions


Cardiovascular Warm-Up


Incorporate 5-10 minutes of light cardiovascular exercise, such as jogging or skipping. This raises your heart rate, increasing blood flow to muscles and enhancing overall body warmth.


Dynamic Stretching


Perform dynamic stretches like leg swings, arm circles, and torso twists. These movements promote flexibility, improve circulation, and activate the muscles you'll use during padel.


Sport-Specific Movements


Mimic padel-specific movements during your warm-up. Include lateral shuffles, shadow shots, and controlled lunges to simulate the on-court actions. This mentally and physically prepares you for the game.

As the winter courts beckon, remember that a comprehensive warm-up is your key to staying injury free and unlocking your peak performance. Integrate these three quick warm-up exercises into your routine, and step onto the padel court with confidence, knowing that you've primed your body for success. And speaking of extra layers earlier, make sure to check out the UK PADEL Shop for your winter gear essentials such as beanies and waterproof layers. 


See you out on court, nothing but padel!
