We have already seen why it is worth investing in the padel and how much a playing field costs. Today, however, we want to talk about why it is important to choose the best materials for the construction of the same and thus avoid unnecessary risks over time.
1) The playing surface (or parquet)
The first point and one of the most important when installing a Padel court, is to create a parquet and/or a perimeter edging, compliant with the features required by the project prepared by the engineer. This work should be free of defects such as bumps and/or ridges.
Presence of defects that could alter playability.
The turf positioned on three different floors will give different results.
2. The turf
The choice of the turf is crucial depending on the goal one strives to achieve: In conjunction with world-class trainers and players, Italian Padel selected 6 types of turfs, after analysis and tests carried out on more than 30 models assessed from among: single-strand or curled single-strand with height varying between 10 and 16 mm.
Thanks to this wide range we can choose the degree of rigidity/softness and speed/slowness we strive to achieve in our court.
3) Strive for quality
The fact that padel is in its early stages in Italy, the absence of major industrial players and the convulsive hunt for lower prices have created grounds for construction of products with questionable quality and durability given that they immediately show clear signs of deterioration just a few months from installation.
The quality of the court metal structure should guarantee usability for at least 20 years.
