Padel X

The Padel X community is growing across Finland

The Padel X community is growing across Finland: new centers opening in Kaarina, Joensuu, Kuopio and Rauma in 2023

Padel is one of the most rapidly growing sports in the world and has been gaining massive popularity in Finland in the last few years. As the number of enthusiasts grows, cities and towns around the country are facing a shared problem: the amount of demand is exceeding the amount of high quality facilities available. Padel X – the largest domestic padel chain – is responding to the need by opening high quality centers in Kaarina, Joensuu, Kuopio and Rauma. 

“We at Padel X appreciate quality, a first class padel experience, community, the joy of movement and well-being. We work for the players, the community and the entire sport, and want to raise the standards of padel in Finland, in as many cities as possible. Every single Padel X center provides the best possible experience and amenities, so we invest in them accordingly,” says Iivari Lappalainen, CEO and co-founder of Padel X.

The Padel X concept is clear: best-in-class experience and conditions enabling a thriving community

The centers in Kaarina, Joensuu, Kuopio and Rauma are designed and built following the Padel X principle of community and quality first – from warm-up to game time and from recovery to socializing. Everything is founded on top-notch quality, a tight community, the joy of exercise, and the advancement of health and well-being. 

The experience of the centers is a combination of high quality facilities, superior playing conditions and a selection of services:

  • Warm-up and strength training areas

  • WPT-level padel courts

  • Ten (10) meter playing height

  • Top notch acoustics and lighting

  • Cold plunge pools for recovery

  • Large unisex sauna (in swimsuits) for shared post-game relaxation

  • Spacious lounge and cafe area

  • Well-equipped padel shop 

“The cozyness of our facilities and our bespoke services make our centers more than just warehouses: they are homes for our community,” Lappalainen describes.

Vamos! More Padel X centers are in the works

With Kaarina, Kuopio, Joensuu and Rauma becoming Padel X cities - in addition to Vaasa, Turku, Jyväskylä and Pori - Padel X is undisputedly the largest domestic padel operator. Kuopio (9 courts), Joensuu (9 courts) and Rauma (7 courts) centers are largest in their respective cities, and Kaarina’s center (7 courts) is the first one in the city..

And more cities and centers are underway so that Padel X may continue to spread the joy of padel.

“We plan to make our first-class padel experience available to as many people in as many cities as we possibly can. More news on this coming soon,” says Iivari Lappalainen, CEO and co-founder of Padel X.
