As part of our ongoing commitment to upgrading and adding to our facilities and sporting infrastructure here at The Point, we are delighted to announce a brand new offering for friends and families to enjoy. A project that has been in the pipeline for a little while is nearing completion this month.
History was made on Monday 2nd May when the first trench was dug to mark the start of the padel revolution in Cornwall. Available in Cornwall for the first time, The Point is building two purpose built Padel tennis courts in partnership with Rocks Lane Padel.
“ It has been my dream to bring padel to the UK for over 10 years. I first became inspired after seeing a family playing padel with smiles on their faces whilst on holiday in Spain. I wanted to find out more about this unique sport that seemed like a cross between beach tennis, lawn tennis and squash. After some research, it quickly became my aim to develop a padel tennis facility in the UK that would be available to all and give people of all ages and abilities a chance to play this fun and sociable sport with friends and family. This dream was realised when we built the largest padel centre in the UK on Chiswick Common in London, 12 months ago. We now have 4500 registered players, 5 full time padel teaching pros, local and national tournaments and a number of players representing Great Britain.The next stage of this historic journey takes place in Cornwall and we are very excited to bring this sporting joy to the South West.”

The new courts will be situated just outside our clubhouse on the site of our old tennis courts and will be completed in time for May half term. Courts will be available to book online via the Playtomic App on the hour during health club opening hours.
They will be available to both members and visitors alike. Please keep an eye out for updates when bookings go live on our dedicated Padel tennis page!
