‘Padel On The Move’, an ambitious project in Vlaanderen that aims to realize 150 courts and 10.000 members.
Padel On The Move, a project of Padel Vlaanderen (the flemish speaking regional padel association in Belgium), started showing padel to a massive amount of people by promoting the sport in public places. Padel Vlaanderen invested in 2 mobile courts with a platform that can be installed on any type of surface. The investment was made possible thanks to Provincie Oost-Vlaanderen, Vlaamse Overheid, Red Sport Padel and Adidas Padel. It gives the opportunity to clubs, public institutions and others to take the initiative to promote padel among their specific public.
From 2015-2018, Padel On The Move will organise exhibitions, initiation lessons, clinics and tournaments on 2 mobile courts in different public locations. Padel On The Move brings padel to the people and aims to convince local authorities, private investors, sportsclubs,…to invest in Padel. Since the creation (2012) of Padel 4U2 Gent with 8 courts, padel really got a boost and is getting more popular every day. By the end of 2016 there will be over 40 courts on more than 10 locations in Vlaanderen.
The ambition of Padel Vlaanderen is to realise 150 courts with 10.000 members by the end of 2018. Anyone having interest in having a temporary padel court nearby can contact Nick Braet through firstname.lastname@example.org.
