The fact that padel, above all, is a team game makes it extra fun, and it’s a perfect way to socialize. Gather your friends, colleagues, or family, pack your training bag, and head to one of Stockholm’s padel courts. Everyone can practice this sport – from children to seniors – and it’s easy to get started. You don’t need to have experience in racket sports, and it’s possible to play and have fun even if you are at different levels.

What is padel?


For beginners, this popular form of exercise, also called padel tennis, can best be described as a mix of tennis and squash. The sport comes from Mexico, and the court is designed as a miniature tennis court with dimensions 10 x 20 meters. The padel court, which usually has artificial grass, is enclosed by 4-meter high glass and metal mesh walls that can be used in the game in the same way as when you play squash. Padel is usually played in doubles with four players, but also in singles (in singles, the court is smaller).

A padel racquet doesn’t consist of strings like the tennis and squash rackets but is more like a thicker beach tennis racket. It’s made of a hard composite material where holes perforate the hitting surface. With these shorter solid bats, you don’t get the same force when you hit the ball, and it becomes easier for the opponent to catch it. In this way, there’ll be more long great ball duels, even between beginners, and you can maximize the playing time in a completely different way than in, for example, tennis. The ball is almost the same as a tennis ball, but a little smaller and softer. Scoring is the same as tennis.

Padel Stockholm

Where can you play padel in the Stockholm area?


As a padel player in Stockholm, you have great opportunities to practice your sport. There are several centers to choose from, but be prepared that you’ll need to travel some distance from the city center in most cases. However, you can easily reach most of them by public transport and a short walk – and some are located quite central.

In our guide you can find great padel centers in Stockholm where both professionals and beginners can play padel – one of Sweden’s most popular forms of exercise. Just book a court. And if you don’t have your own racket, it’s almost always possible to rent or borrow equipment on site.

Plenty of fun, endorphins, speed, sweat, and excellent training for all the body’s muscles are promised. Who puts the best spin on the underhand serve? Who has the best forehand and backhand? And which team wins?

CPN

CPN padel Stockholm
Play outdoor padel and hang out with your friends at CPN’s facilities
When you play padel in Stockholm at CPN (Central Padel Nordic), you not only get a high-class playing environment on excellent courts but the ultimate padel experience where socializing is an equally important part. CPN currently has three locations in the Stockholm area – near Östermalm in Norra Djurgårdsstaden (outdoor), in Gustavsberg (indoor), and at cozy Siggesta Gård on Värmdö (outdoor). And everyone is welcome – on the courses, you’ll meet everyone from dedicated padel enthusiasts to beginners playing for the first time. Plus, a bunch who are here to hang out off-court. Because you don’t have to have a padel racket in your hand to enjoy yourself at CPN.

The facility in Norra Djurgårdsstaden is their flagship, and there are as many as 10 courts for outdoor padel, surrounded by lush trees and plants. After the game, you can hang out in the lovely lounge area and enjoy good food from three different restaurant concepts (burgers, dumplings, and Indian), drinks, after-work, live performances, and other entertainment (you can also book the facility for your own events). If you have extra energy, you can also continue sweating in the well-equipped outdoor gym. “Playcation for the soul, mind, social and planet,” as they describe it themselves, and this padel oasis certainly lives up to that motto.

And if you want to play padel in wonderfully scenic surroundings, you should swing by the facility at Siggesta Gård – here, the two courts are in the middle of an alpaca meadow. In short, CPN is the perfect activity for those who like padel and hanging out in good company.
