Thistle Padel Club officially opened their new all-weather enclosure on Sunday 8th December. Spectators were treated to a high-quality exhibition match which included the number one British Padel pairing, alongside an official opening ceremony which saw former Scotland rugby international Mike Blair cut the ribbon to open the courts.
After being established in March 2017, Thistle Padel Club recently partnered with padel specialists Game4Padel, to install a full enclosure on the courts, a move that would ensue that members can enjoy the fastest growing global sport in all conditions, year-round.
Speaking on the launch of the new enclosure Mike Blair said “It’s really exciting to see Padel growing in Scotland. The provision of indoor courts will only strengthen the already rapid growth of the sport and hopefully lead to increased participation numbers in the local community and across the Edinburgh region.”
The Edinburgh Padel Festival was a great success with nearly 200 people trying the game of padel for the very first time and fell in love with the game!
