Taster Sessions

Taster Sessions give you an opportunity to experience playing padel for a fiver. It is low cost, low risk way of 'dipping a toe in the water' to see whether you want to play a bit more. Each hour's session is limited to 6 people, and we supply all the kit (i.e. rackets and balls) you need. You just need to turn up wearing sensible trainers.

Our taster sessions typically comprise a brief introduction to the game (including the main rules), followed by some hitting and serving practice followed by some game time. By the end of the session, you will have a feel for the wonderful sport of padel and will hopefully understand why it is the fastest growing sport in the world!

Taster sessions cost £5 (includes VAT) and are currently held most Monday evenings and Friday mornings as noted below. If you join a taster session we offer you a 30 day free introductory membership so you can book courts and play. While a member you are also welcome at our Wednesday night social sessions.

Note: if you are not a member of The Welsh Padel Centre your participation in taster sessions is subject to these terms and conditions - opens in a new tab.

Group Coaching Sessions

Padel Paul's Group Coaching Sessions give you an opportunity to learn from an experienced player (and qualified coach) and practice your play. Whether you are new to racket sports or want to use your existing racket skills and improve your padel, group coaching makes the experience an affordable way to improve and have fun. We supply all the kit (i.e. rackets and balls) for each hour's session. You just need to turn up wearing sensible trainers. We offer two different types of group coaching as noted below.

We strongly recommend you attend a Group Taster session before booking for a Group Coaching session. After the Taster session you will be advised which of the coaching sessions is the most suitable for you.

Beginners: A maximum of 4 people per session. £7.50 for the hour's session. This coaching session will concentrate on the basics (including racket skills) with the objective to teach you the basic rules and get you confident of being able to play a game of padel for fun and exercise.

Improvers: A maximum of 4 people per session. £7.50 for the hour's session. These sessions are aimed at those confident in hitting a ball and who can hold their own in a game but want to understand some of the more complex areas (including playing off the glass). It will include an aspect of repetitive training (i.e. playing balls off the glass) but will concentrate more on playing a game with the coaching observing from the side lines and commenting/ demonstrating as necessary.

Group coaching sessions are arranged as and when there is demand on Tuesday evenings as noted below. If you are interested in coaching please contact us to discuss and book.

Note: if you are not a member of The Welsh Padel Centre your participation in group coaching sessions is subject to these terms and conditions - opens in a new tab.

Social Sessions

Wednesday night social sessions are back!

Social Sessions give you an opportunity to play with others of a similar standard. They are overseen by a member of the padel centre team (who will join in if needed). People are paired up randomly (padel is a doubles game) and will play another pair. Each hour session is limited 6 people and you will rotate to ensure that everyone gets game time. It's a great way to meet new players and get your daily step count up. We supply all the kit (i.e. rackets and balls) if needed.

Unless you are a regular padel player, we strongly recommend you attend a Group Taster session and or a Group Coaching session before booking social sessions. There is little to be gained from playing above or below your capability!

Social Sessions are available to members and their guests only and cost £ 5.00 (please sign-up via the Aceboook online booking system) and are streamed as noted below:

Beginners: for those starting out their padel journey.

Rackets: Stronger padel players or those with good racket skills able to hold their own in a game. It's for fun but .....

The sessions are now booked via Acebook, the online booking system. Simply go to the date you want to book, click on the session you want to join, a window will pop-up and you will be able to join (if numbers permit). If they don't permit, you will be automatically added to a wating list. Payment (£5) is through the Acebook system and therefore will use credit in your online wallet if you have it. Cancellation (which must be 24 hrs in advance) is conducted the same way (i.e. by clicking on the session) and clicking the red x next to your name. In the event of cancellation more than 24 hrs before the session you will automatically be credited.

We are in the early stages of the development of these social sessions and the format will evolve as get feedback and experience.

It was excellent. Really enjoyed the session! He was such a great coach and made us understand the game really well.

Really enjoyed the session! The coach was great; really informative and friendly!

It was obvious that the coach knows his stuff. I’m glad that he was teaching us the basics even if we have played racket sports before.
