Padel Haus wants to corner the US market.
The latest: The members-only padel club is readying its third NYC location and first Nashville outpost amid nationwide expansion.
Complete with eight courts, a kid’s playground, a coworking space, a climbing wall, and social lounges, Nashville will be its largest location to date.
Riding a $7.5M raise last year, founder and CEO Santiago Gomez says the company could open as many as 50 clubs within five years.
Full swing ahead. Requiring more athleticism than pickleball but less skill than tennis, padel is catching on.
More than a post-pandemic fad, the US padel market is expected to grow from <300 to 30K courts and count 8M players by 2030.
Getting ahead of the trend, clubs are building the infrastructure.
- Luxury operator Reserve Padel is hosting an exclusive Miami tournament this week.
- Park Padel is partnering with SF for public pop-up courts before its spring opening.
- Miami’s Ultra Club and Raleigh’s Swing Racquet + Paddle are packaging padel alongside other racket sports.
Punchline: Delivering physical, social, and network benefits, padel courts are becoming watering holes for the wealthy and wellness-minded.
