Welcome to The Bandeja

The team behind The Bandeja love playing padel and believe that padel can – and should – be played by everyone of any age or ability; it’s great to watch the athleticism and skill of elite players but nothing beats time on court with friends, family or fellow club members.

Like much of the UK we are fairly new to the sport. It was while on court (Padel United, Maldon) that the idea for The Bandeja was born, named because the bandeja is one of the first shots people learn.

Our plan is simple.

To deliver padel news and information, inspire people to get on court and have fun and bring together the UK padel community in one place.

It’s great to have you here. Vamos padel!
