Padel Tennis centre proposed for Fareham

Executive Members at Fareham Borough Council are supporting a proposal to build a padel tennis centre at Park Lane Recreation Ground.

Padel tennis is one of the world’s fastest growing sports. Often referred to as a mix of tennis and squash, it is easy to learn and can be played by all ages and abilities.

The Council has received a proposal from Padel4All, one of the leading operators of covered padel centres in the UK, to fund and develop an accessible, four-court centre on the open space at Park Lane Recreation Ground.

This centre would make use of the facilities already provided by Fareham Leisure Centre, such as the café, parking and changing rooms. In return, the Council would receive a share of the revenue generated from the centre, as well as rental income as the landowner. There would also be no capital cost to the Council as the scheme would be fully funded by Padel4All.

Padel4All have received the Council’s support, after submitting a financial model and plans for considerations. However, any future building work would be subject to public consultation, the usual planning processes and legal considerations. 

Councillor Sue Walker, Executive Member for Leisure and Community at Fareham Borough Council, said: “Fareham is quickly becoming known for its wide range of leisure and community facilities, so am not surprised that Padel4All has identified it as a potential location to set up a padel tennis centre. While nothing is set in stone at this stage, I am delighted to support this exciting proposal in principal and look forward to hearing what residents think.”
