Game4Padel is delighted to announce a new collaboration with Scarborough Group International (SGI) – one of the UK’s most active property regeneration and placemaking specialists. Our partnership will create world-leading padel facilities across SGI’s portfolio of award-winning projects focused across the Northern Powerhouse.
For over 45 years SGI has demonstrated a commitment to regeneration and placemaking, delivering vibrant and community-led projects. In the UK, these include Thorpe Park Leeds, the North’s premier, mixed-use community set within 350 acres of land off the M1 and home to over 100 local, national and international businesses employing over 5,500 people; Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, a new life sciences park focused on innovation in sport, health and wellbeing that will create up to 5,600 high value jobs; and Middlewood Locks, a 25-acre canal-side mixed-use neighbourhood located between Manchester and Salford that already has a growing community of over 1,300 people.
Game4Padel’s CEO, Michael Gradon commented: “[SGI] has proven expertise in regenerating areas and bringing them back to life and this is very much akin to what we are doing as a business with our padel courts which often give new life and excitement to leisure sites”.
Scott McCabe, Director at SGI, added: “SGI is extremely excited about this new partnership with Game4Padel. Like so many other people, my family and I fell in love with the game while holidaying in Spain, and we have watched with interest at how it is really starting to gain momentum across the UK.
“As such, we believe it will be a great addition to our mixed-use projects where one of our primary objectives is to build communities and support the active wellbeing of our residents”.
SGI’s charitable arm, The Scarborough Group Foundation recently provided funding for a new two-court facility in the town of Scarborough. Works are currently underway and expected to be completed by late October / early November.
