Padel (a hybrid of tennis and squash) continues to make waves across the country and more so in the Fourways community.

The Rivonia Leisure Club in Paulshof recently opened its padel courts to the public, which saw a number of community members and fitness enthusiasts enjoying the day playing the sport on the newly constructed courts. But these are not the only padel courts in the community that locals can access.

The German club opened courts earlier in the year, available to young and old in the community.

When launching the courts at Paulshof, Padel Lab Finance Director Andrew Cox said: “We charge R400 per hour which is R100 per person as it is normally played by four people. You book on an app called Playtomic which is standard across South Africa.

“If you look on the app at a specific time and date and check if Rivonia is available, they may be full, but there may be an open court at the German Club and you can book there. All padel operators are affiliates in the same application and the cost is the same.

Keep an eye on the Padel Lab social media pages as there are often promotions when booking a court.
