Rocket Padel Serves Up Central London’s First Riverside Courts at Battersea Power Station

Rocket Padel is launching Central London’s first riverside indoor padel courts at Battersea Power Station, bringing a slice of Stockholm’s padel culture to the Thames.

After a roaring success with a pop-up court at The Battersea Games in 2023, Rocket Padel is doubling down on their commitment to energise the London padel scene. They’re rolling out four premium indoor courts, promising a padel experience like no other, set against the historic backdrop of the Grade II* listed powerhouse.

A Community-Centric Venture

At the core of this exciting launch is a heartfelt aim to weave padel into the community fabric. Rocket Padel and Battersea Power Station are joining forces to launch community programmes, ensuring local youth, charities, and schools benefit from complimentary taster sessions. Moreover, this sporting endeavour is poised to create a host of job opportunities for locals, alongside educational workshops, work experience, and apprenticeships in collaboration with the LTA.

A Green Space with a Sporty Twist

Complementing the padel courts is a landscaped public realm for all visitors to enjoy, adding a verdant touch to the riverside neighbourhood. Open daily, Rocket Padel will also feature a refreshment kiosk for that essential post-match refuel.

Sam Cotton from Battersea Power Station Development Company shared the enthusiasm for this collaboration, highlighting Rocket Padel’s expertise in delivering a new dynamic to the riverside, with significant benefits for the community, including job creation and padel sessions for locals.

Sebastian Gordon, Founder of Rocket Padel, expressed excitement over the partnership, emphasising the unique location’s potential to elevate padel’s profile both locally and globally. Rocket Padel aims to blend sports with lifestyle, offering an unmatched playing and visiting experience at this flagship venue.

Battersea: A Cultural and Sporting Hotspot

Battersea Power Station has rapidly become a must-visit destination, drawing over 11.2 million visitors in 2023 alone and earning accolades as a top cultural hotspot. The addition of Rocket Padel reinforces the area’s status as a burgeoning sporting hub, already celebrated for hosting The Battersea Games and designated as an official fan zone for Wimbledon and the Paris 2024 Olympics.
