For the construction of a padel court it is necessary to have an extension of land of about 200 meters^2.
The official measurements of a padel court are 10 meters wide x 20 meters long.
Walls: Glass or Concrete wall.
- concrete wall:
- The trajectory of the ball when it hits the wall is more predictable
- The concrete wall occupies more space than the glass wall
- Does not meet the specifications of the professional tracks of World Padel Tour
- Best aesthetic
- Meets the specifications of the World Padel Tour professional tracks
- Its construction is a bit more expensive than concrete wall tracks
- The trajectory of the ball is less predictable.
The floor of a padel court may vary depending on the material used for its construction:
- Synthetic resin:
This type of ground is the most used in tournaments since its material provides different ball speed depending on the way it has been hit. One of the main characteristics of this type of floor is its comfort since the resin used provides a padding that increases grip, reducing injuries.
2. Artificial grass:
This type of ground causes a slower game, in addition to better cushioning when the ball touches the ground. Another great benefit is with respect to the grip of the shoes. Both the grass and the materials used in its installation (silica sand) cause a better grip thus avoiding slips and possible injuries. The most commonly used types of artificial grass are polyethylene and polypropylene, since they are less abrasive.
3. Porous concrete:
The main benefit of this type of soil is the porosity of the material, which facilitates the process of draining the pavement, facilitating the drying of the track and preventing the formation of water accumulations. But its biggest drawback is the hardness of the material, which leads to more serious injuries in the event of a fall. The floor of the padel court can also vary in color. The official colors are: blue, green and brown-earthy.
