The iPadel Club Leagues give players around the country the chance to participate in a national tournament. Any club (or group of players) is eligible to enter, with all matches organised into regional leagues that lead to the overall national finals, held on October 7/8th at Rocket Padel.

This year 16 teams contested the men’s final, with Rocks Lane Chiswick emerging victorious against Oxshott 1 having removed their old adversaries Roehampton earlier in the tournament. 

In the ladies, Chelsea Harbour Club continue to stamp their authority on the leagues, clinching the title for the second season on the trot with a win over Padel4all, Basset Down, who deserve huge credit for reaching the finals in their first ever iPadel tournament.

Chelsea Harbour Club also continue to dominate the mixed event, with their 1st and 2nd teams making it though to the final. The first team clinched the win 2-1 but play was tight, with the first team winning 55.8% of the games. It’s the second successive league win for Chelsea Harbour 1.

iPadel director Ian Colligon, who established the Club Leagues two years ago, said: “It was a great weekend of padel in a brilliant location. The standard of play was fantastic and is increasing every season, justifying the LTA’s decision to upgrade the finals to a Grade 3 event.”
