Ian is one of the industry leaders when it comes to the padel industry. A pioneer in Padel, who has amassed an amazing knowledge and expertise is this field. If you have an interest in developing padel at your club or facility, speaking with Ian is a must! I can’t thank him enough for all the help, support and encouragement he has given me. This has been invaluable to building my first padel venture!!!
After researching padel court suppliers since 2016, iPadel have identified some of the best companies in terms of their quality of product and levels of customer service and that is why we are happy to work with them as our preferred suppliers for padel court construction in the UK.
We offer a totally independent consultancy service that is unique in the UK. Based on your requirements we will provide you with a selection of options. All suppliers will assess your situation and give you a free quote for your proposed padel project.
Court surface is paramount with all sports and padel is no exception. Our contractors work with world renowned surface providers such as MONDO as well as other World Padel Tour certified surface brands. They all ensure a top quality service from start to finish as well as a top quality after service.
Our suppliers also provide a wide range of canopies and external features as well as even ball catching nets for outdoor clubs situated near busy roads. Canopies, although not essential, provide your courts with the necessary protection from the British weather and therefore increase court time and revenue.
As an alternative to traditional courts this is a world-unique mobile padel court that can be used indoors as well as outdoors. With the help of a simple click system and strengthening support legs, the track is mounted in 6-8 hours.
Instead of 10 mm glass panels that weigh about 250 kg / panel, the panels are 10 mm polycarbonate, which means that they only weigh 80 kg, which means that this court type does not require any major ground work. The floor, which measures 200 m², is a portable plastic floor.
With this court, you save both time and money and have many benefits. You avoid major ground work construction and you can easily move the court if needed. these courts also ideal for those who wish to have the ability to mount up and down a court seasonally.
iPadel offer your venue a consultancy service to help you with all aspects of your padel court project. We will arrange free quotes from at least three suppliers to give you a comparison, including for any preparatory ground works which may be necessary. All suppliers will provide at least a 10 year guarantee and offer ongoing service arrangements. Your courts can be branded and coaching clinics or sponsored events can be arranged to help build your padel membership.
Ian was the very first person I spoke with concerning Padel in the UK and I am so glad that he was. From the outset he has been a font of knowledge, a guide and an amazing network navigator. Ian is extremely well connected and respected within the nascent UK Padel ecosystem and has established himself as a highly respected, trusted operator.
From advice on court suppliers, finance options and connections into the sport's governing bodies, it appears there's no-one out of reach to Ian. I would strongly recommend Ian to anyone wishing to learn more about the sport of Padel as I have yet to find another person more knowledgeable, approachable and willing to help - a true professional with amazing values.

We are also working with companies looking to invest in the building of padel courts and clubs across the UK. This option is suitable for organisations who want to develop padel but do not have the capital to build courts nor want to take out a loan. You have the benefit of new facilities and a new sport which will be very popular in your local community with no financial outlay. The business model works on a profit share based on the pay and play income generated from court bookings.
Our investors are always on the lookout for suitable sites to build padel clubs, so if you have unused land, industrial units or other large buildings that you want to financially benefit from please get in touch. Options available are purchase, lease or profit share from revenue generated by padel court usage. The investors would build and operate all aspects of the new venture.
