Tennis Padel Squash & Racketball The Bourne Club Academy Badminton Gym Merchandise

The Bourne Club is delighted to announce the addition of Padel alongisde the more familiar racket sports of tennis, squash, racketball and badminton.  Padel, one of the fastest growing sports across contintental Europe, has increased in popularity over the recent years with over 6 million people currently playing in Spain.

Padel is a form of tennis that is easy to play, fun and sociable. It is played mainly in a doubles format on an enclosed court about a third of the size of a tennis court and can be played in groups of mixed ages and abilities, as it is not power dominant. The rules are similar to tennis, although you serve underarm and the walls are used as part of the game with the ball allowed to bounce off them.

Padel is playable at The Club all year round and members can book via the online system.  Non-members will have the opportunity to experience our brand new facility and will be able to book Pay & Play sessions.

Our fantastic new Padel court is now open.  The floodlit court is available for play between 7.30am to 10.00pm.

We are delighted to team up with DropShot UK, a leading manufacturer of Padel equipment.  Rackets, balls, shoes and bags are available for purchase.  Visit our Merchandise page for further information


Coaching for All

A range of courses and sessions are available for the Padel novice through to the more experienced player.

Whilst Padel is primarily a doubles game, individual tuition is a great way to perfect the skills required.  Alternatively team up with a partner for some additional tips and tactics and maximise your potential.
