Community is everything to us at Padel X. It is our family. And there isn’t anything we wouldn’t do for our family! We are in the business of building homes – not padel halls. And we invest accordingly. We design every single one of our centers to provide the best possible padel experience. From warm-up to game time, from recovery to socializing. It’s all top notch, providing you with the padel experience of your life.
We at Padel X warmly welcome Pori to the Padel X -family. Iivari Lappalainen, Padel X co-founder and CEO, reflects on the expansion as follows:
“Pori is an energetic city with long traditions in athletics and sports. We are grateful for the opportunity to open one of the finest padel centers in Finland right next to Pori city center in Aittaluoto. With 11 WPT courts, Padel X Pori will be the largest Padel X -center built until today. Personally, I can’t wait for the fall opening!”
We at Padel X believe in quality without compromise, first- class padel experience, the bond of community, the joy of exercise, and the importance of health & wellness. These ideals are the foundation of Padel X. Iivari Lappalainen, co-founder & CEO, explains the Padel X story as follows:
“Padel felt right from the moment I played it. Fun, social and easy to start. This was a sport that I could play with my mom, my spouse, or my friends alike. It felt like a sport that could make an impact on people’s lives & health. Something that could bring back “fun” to “exercise”.
To my disappointment, I quickly realized that most padel locations didn’t meet my needs as a player. They lacked proper facilities, services or the communal aspects I was looking for - they felt “cold.” Especially for a sport that was inherently so social.
Coming from a business background, I also quickly realized that there were things I would have done differently from a business point-of-view. I started to understand that there was a business opportunity in padel.
And so the idea of Padel X came to be. An opportunity to make an impact, to provide us players an experience worthy of our love for the sport, and to create a sustainable business to ensure that padel is played in the years to come.”
Padel is one of the world’s fastest growing sports. The racket sport has also taken Finland by storm, according to Yle. Padel is a four-player sport played in doubles on a smaller version of a tennis court surrounded by walls. The game itself is inherently fun, social and equal. The equal nature of padel creates a unique opportunity to enjoy the game with your spouse, or with your whole family alike - from kids to grandparents.
