Following a successful 2017 event, We Are Padel is proud to announce that Pop-Up Padel will be returning to Canary Wharf - as part of Canary Wharf Group’s Arts + Events programme - from Saturday 16 June – Friday 6 July.

 

Last year the event attracted thousands of people over three weeks, making Pop-Up Padel the largest event for the sport in the UK and one of the most prominent padel events of its kind worldwide.

 

The positive feedback from Canary Wharf workers and visitors was overwhelming, and led to a significant increase in interest and participation for the sport in the UK.

 

The second edition of the event – Pop-Up Padel 2018 – will once again take place at Montgomery Square, Canary Wharf.

 

Due to the popularity of the taster sessions last year, this year’s programme will continue to offer free taster sessions Monday-Friday from 12noon-1.30pm so everyone can try the sport by just showing up. Court bookings are available daily between 10am–10pm (10am-9pm on weekends) at £48 per hour.

 

In addition for companies We Are Padel is organising a corporate league in conjunction with Maui Jim Sunglasses on Tuesday July 3rd where there will be special prizes for the winning team.

 

The World Padel Tour London Exhibition has also been confirmed for 28 – 29 June. Players include the almighty Juan Martin Diaz accompanied by the talented Miguel Lamperti. Pop-Up Padel will also be welcoming the atomic twin duo and top ranked ladies team in the world, Mapi & Majo Sanchez Alayeto.

 

We Are Padel is proudly supporting the charity Action For Kids and will donate 10% of all court rentals and corporate league entries.

The Canary Wharf Pop-Up-Padel was without doubt the most significant event for the sport’s history in the UK. For almost three weeks, the sky-scrapper district Canary Wharf saw a pop-up Adidas Padel court installed in Montgomery Square, with the aim to attract new players and offer world-class exposure for the sport.

The event - organised by WeArePADEL in collaboration with the sport’s acting governing body British Padel - delivered free taster sessions Monday to Friday during lunchtime for city workers, and offered court rentals every day between 10am–12am and 1pm–9pm.

Londoners experienced for the first time a World Padel Tour Exhibition by the world’s top players Sanyo Gutierrez, Maxi Sanchez, Mati Diaz and Agustin Gomez Silingo, who put on a breath-taking spectacle June 29th and 30th. Former No.4 Swedish tennis player Jonas Bjorkman also joined the show by giving a surprise appearance and playing in one of the exhibitions with the professional padel players.

Furthermore, the organisation proudly supported the charity Action For Kids and donated a percentage of revenue from court rentals and the corporate league.

This event would have not been possible without the help and commitment of our sponsors Canary Wharf Group, Adidas, Estrella Damm and Aspall. We would like to express a sincere gratitude for their efforts. Thank you also to World Padel Tour, Head, Padelshack, Little José restaurant and Novotel Canary Wharf.

Brought to you by British Padel - the sport’s acting governing body in the UK - is Pop-Up Padel 2017, an unprecedented world-class event showcasing the fastest growing sport in the world - Padel tennis. 

For the first time in the UK, the concept of Pop-Up Padel is introduced through our partnership with Canary Wharf Group, Adidas, Estrella Damm and Aspall. For three weeks this summer Montgomery Square will host the most state-of-the-art Padel court to deliver a high-end experience to anyone wanting to try the sport of padel. Walk-on players will have a chance to play with colleagues and watch London’s first World Padel Tour Exhibition featuring the world’s top players. The Exhibition will take place on Thursday 29th and Friday 30th from 5pm to 9pm.

Padel is the fastest growing sport in the world. It is a racquet sport that originated in Latin America and has attracted over 10 million players worldwide. In Spain alone, where the sport is more popular than tennis, it has attracted over 6 million players. In recent years, the sport has seen high levels of growth in European countries including the UK, Sweden and France. 

The sport is a hybrid of tennis and squash, played on a court half the size of a traditional tennis court with surrounding glass walls and using slightly modified equipment. It is a highly sociable sport and does not require high levels of skill when playing at beginner or intermediate levels.
