After succesful completion of the tournaments in PadelClub London (Jan), Chigwell and Bushey, it was all down to the Yorkshire men at Huddersfield to complete this years British Padel Tour.
With players from over 8 different countries (Including Aussies, Spanish, Irish a.o.) the tournament was a great success, with winners Acevedo & Loredo beating Leach & Fernandez in a tough but very exciting match. Gonzalez & Byrne raised the trophy in the ladies Category.
Launched in 2012, The British Padel Tour is an intiative of the Padel England Association and UK Padel Federation to grow the awareness of the sport across England and the UK. The objective is to grow the calendar every year, engaging more and more players each time, whilst focusing on increasing sport awareness and sport participation.
Sponsors Total Padel, Dunlop, David Lloyd (two hosting events) and the UK Padel Federation (presidented by Padel England Association) were extremely delighted with the turn out of the latest event. Huddersfield Team, including Toni Salord and Peter Vann had arranged amazing weather for the day, making it almost feel like Spain.
Keep an eye on our website, where we will announce more events on the calendar very shortly. If you cant wait to pick up a bat/racket yourself, check our 'where to play' section for all locations in the UK where you can play. We hope to see you on court very soon, and next year during the next British Padel Tour, which will be once again hosted by the UK Padel Federation and Padel England Association.
Updated - 1st Tournament completed
After the successful launch of the British Padel Open 2012, Padel England and UK Padel Federation have the honour to announce the new dates for 2013.
This year we will be hosting 4 events, in the 4 exisiting locations, Canary Wharf, Bushey, Chigwell and Huddersfield. If new facilities open up we will be placing these on the calendar.
Please find attached below the 'How to buy a court guide' designed by Padel England Association (UKPF/PEA), UK Padel representative in the FIP (International Padel Federation) and the NGB for the sport in England and the UK.
The guideline is an ever developing documentation, and we strongly advise you to get in contact with PEA prior to starting your project, to make sure you have the most current and up to date guideline.
Always make sure when you buy the court, it meets the UK minimum court specification. FEP (Spanish) and FIP (International) are not designed with UK H&S and rules and regulations in mind. We will be adding case studies to this page, to explain the errors made in the recent history in the UK.
Public courts in the UK have to be Wheelchair Accessible (DDA compliant) by LAW (approved by PEA/UKPF April 2012 - supported by FIP)
'Support bar' at entrance of the court is illegal (H&S tripping hazard)
Contractor / Installer has to have license to build in the UK
Remember when you buy the court, who will be liable after the completion. By using different companies, they tend to point at each other. The installer will say the problem is based on the sub-base, the contractor will point at the manufacturer, etc. Using different companies will allow incidents to happen.
UK registered and licensed companies have experience in the UK, with UK weather, and have a knowledge about the UK Sport and Recreation legislation
Insurance & Liability Policy
By using a UK registered and licensed company, you are covered for any liability and insurance matters. Always ask PEA/UKPF for advise in bringing your project to completion. We are here to help.
There is a growing list of contractors & builders that can bring your project to completion. Send and email to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
