Get your Padel on! New sport comes to the Cotswolds

Padel Shift, the UK’s leading rural padel club operator, has announced the launch of its first two sites with further locations set to go live later in 2023. As the world’s fastest-growing sport continues to gain momentum in the UK, Padel Shift is making it its mission to bring padel into new territories outside of cities and in unique locations, giving people from all walks of life a chance to enjoy this exhilarating sport.
Players can now head down to Daylesford Farm in the Cotswolds where they can get on court at The Club by Bamford, a premium health and fitness club designed to enhance physical health and sharpen mental agility.

As part of its mission to introduce as many people to the sport as possible, Padel Shift will be offering FREE introductory court bookings during its first three weeks of operation available from 17th April through to 8th May.
Carole Bamford, Founder, Daylesford & Bamford said: “Our ethos at The Club is to find the joy in fitness, offering our members ways to incorporate it into their lifestyle in ways that are innovative, sociable and fun. Padel chimes perfectly with this, and having seen the racquet sport grow in momentum over the last few years, it is exciting to be bringing some of the action to the Cotswolds countryside with Padel Shift.”

In addition to launching at Daylesford Farm – a leading destination in the UK – Padel Shift will welcome players from the 25th April to yet another eye-catching location situated at the privately owned Coombe End Estate in the South Cotswolds. Here, padel will sit alongside other community-led businesses, including Elkstone Studios – a lifestyle co-working space; Origin Health Club; Knead Bakery; Jane Smith Food Hall and more.

Jack Chaplin, Founder, Padel Shift said: “After a significant period of planning as the UK’s leading rural padel facility operator, we’re finally ready to start getting players on court and we couldn’t be more excited with our first two locations. To be able to welcome all players, whether you’re a complete beginner or a seasoned padel pro, to these unique locations is something we’re hugely proud of. Padel is a sport for people from all walks of life and we’re passionate about getting players on court to experience the fun for themselves.”
Invented in Mexico in 1969, padel is described as a squash-tennis hybrid racket sport, which is almost always played as doubles on an enclosed court surrounded by glass and metallic mesh walls. The court is one third of the size of a tennis court, and also like tennis, the middle net is present and the balls are similar, only slightly softer. Padel can be played either indoors or outdoors and is thought to be played by over 25 million people across more than 90 countries. Whilst the sport is well established in its heartlands of Spain, Argentina and other nations in Latin America, it is currently on a fast upward trajectory across many European countries and the Middle East including the UK where it is thought to be played by approximately 90,000 people.
