Padel tennis (a hybrid of tennis and squash) continues to make waves in the country and more so in the Fourways community.

The German Club opened courts earlier in the year available for young and elderly community members to enjoy.

At the launch of the courts in Paulshof, financial direction at Padel Lab, Andrew Cox said, “We charge R400 an hour, which is R100 per person since it’s normally played by four people. You book on an app called Playtomic that is standard throughout South Africa.”

“If you look on the app at a specific time and date and check to see if Rivonia is available, they may be full but there may be an open court at The German Club and you can book there. All of the padel tennis operators are affiliated with the same app, and the cost is the same.”

Keep an eye on Padel Lab’s social media pages as there are often specials when booking a court.
