Game4Padel is thrilled to announce an exclusive UK partnership with PadelMBA – Spain’s leading coaching platform. This partnership will help us to develop, train and mentor the next generation of UK padel coaches, and to produce top quality online training content for players.
The PadelMBA team has been operating for more than ten years in Spain, where padel is now the country’s second biggest participation sport after football. The company has a strong presence in Sweden, Finland, Italy, South America and Qatar where participation is growing rapidly and, to date, has trained over 1000 coaches worldwide.
Game4Padel is putting significant resources into developing a long-term Coaching Pathway for the UK that will sit alongside existing training programmes and accreditation. We are seeing extremely high demand for court space as people want to try padel. One of the major attractions of the game is that it is relatively easy to pick up and learn, and so we hope by having coaches in place, we can keep players engaged and coming back week after week.
PadelMBA Founder and CEO, Alejandro Martinez commented: “Our mission is to create a global platform that will deliver world class padel education for both players and coaches. Our exclusive partnership with Game4Padel in the UK provides PadelMBA a unique opportunity to have a strong presence in the UK padel market.”
Another huge benefit for Game4Padel members is that they will have access to online coaching content filmed at PadelMBA’s training base in Madrid, featuring our National Development Manager, James Rose, and our brand ambassador, Tia Norton. Game4Padel members will also be offered opportunities to participate in clinics, exhibitions and training days. Specific coaching content is planned for schools and wheelchair padel.
