How to Boost the Potential of Your Padel Courts

Lauralu insulated temporary buildings for sports courts

If you work in the sports and leisure industry, chances are that you have experienced the increasing popularity of Padel.

With over 200 courts in the country, Padel is becoming one of the fastest-growing sports in the UK. The sport is a unique combination of Tennis and Squash. It appeals to players of all ages and skills because it is quick and easy to learn, with points won based on strategy rather than strength and technique.

In order to maximise the potential of your Padel courts, you might want to consider building a cover to provide protection. This ensures that players can enjoy Padel all year round, come rain or shine.
In this blog, we’ll explore the benefits of constructing a sports canopy over your padel courts, as well as the importance of choosing the right-sized canopy.


What size canopy do you need for your Padel court?


One of the key factors to consider when building a covered padel court is the size of the canopy. 

At Lauralu, we advise that the size of your canopy should be slightly larger than the court itself, to ensure adequate coverage and protection from the elements. 

For a single padel court, which measures 10m x 20m, we recommend a canopy cover of 11m x 21m. This additional length will provide sufficient space to protect the court and players from rain or direct sunlight. 

If you plan on building two padel courts, side by side, each measuring 10m x 20m, a larger canopy is needed. A canopy size of 21m x 21m is recommended to cover both courts. 

Three Padel courts of the same dimensions would require a canopy measuring 21m x 34m. 

The overall cost of building a canopy for your Padel court varies depending on how many courts need coverage, and in turn the size of the canopy that needs to be installed.

If your premises has space to dedicate to a larger number of Padel courts and you would like to enquire what size canopy you’ll need to cover it, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team for a no-obligation quote. 


What materials are used to build Padel court canopies?


To provide the best playing experience for your members and to ensure the longevity of your court cover, it’s imperative to use quality materials.

That’s why at Lauralu, we only use the highest standard materials available to build our sports covers, including state-of-the-art Euroclass B-s2, d0 membranes, 100% recyclable steel and aluminium.

We’re so confident with the quality of our sports covers and canopies that they each come with a 10-year structural guarantee.


What are the benefits of building a covered Padel court?


There are numerous advantages to investing in canopy covers for your Padel courts. Here are the four key benefits:

As a canopy provides players with enough coverage to protect them from the elements, it allows you to extend the playing season all year round and increase your profits.

Not only does a canopy provide protection for the players but it also extends the lifespan of the court surface, protecting it from harsh conditions such as high and low temperatures and erosion.

A canopy creates the perfect playing environment for your members, improving their experience of your facilities. 

A sports canopy or cover is a fraction of the cost of a traditional brick-and-mortar building, leading to considerable savings that can be funnelled into other aspects of your business.
