Types of Padel Courts in Dubai
When exploring the costs of padel in Dubai, it’s important to first understand the types of courts available in the area. Dubai is home to a diverse range of padel courts both indoors and outdoors, allowing for greater flexibility and a wide variety of playing styles.
Indoor courts are often the most common type of padel court in the Emirate, and while they are generally more expensive they also offer greater shelter from the elements, making them a more accessible option for players looking to stay away from the sun or humidity. Indoor courts often feature matte finish wooden floors with special padel-court surfaces, allowing for increased grip and higher speeds.
Outdoor courts are generally cheaper than their indoor counterparts, and create a unique playing environment where weather can be a factor. Outdoor courts are either set into the ground or have artificial turf surfaces, which offer players a great grip and enhanced stability.
The surface material of padel courts in Dubai varies widely depending on the type of court and its location. Outdoor courts may have artificial turf surfaces, while indoor courts often feature various types of plastic, rubber or wood floors with special padel-court surfaces.
Along with the type of court and the surface material, the cost of padel play in Dubai is also dependent on the facility’s amenities, such as lighting and air-conditioning. Basic court rental fees in Dubai range from around AED 25-40 per game, while more luxurious clubs can charge upwards of AED 120-150 for an hour of play.
Membership Fees in Dubai
Padel has experienced great growth in the last few years in Dubai, and many local clubs have opened up to cater to the growing population. As a result, many people are drawn to the sport and are now looking to become long-term members at local clubs.
One of the biggest factors people consider before joining their local padel club is the membership fees charged. Costs may vary depending on the club and the type of membership available.
There are typically three types of memberships available in padel clubs in Dubai: annual, quarterly and monthly-based. For annual memberships, people are looking at a one-time payment of at least 2000 AED, depending on the club.
Monthly memberships typically charge 800 AED or more, while quarterly memberships tend to cost 1700 AED or more, depending on the club. Those opting for a quarterly membership will need to pay on a regular basis.
When comparing membership fees in different clubs, it’s important to consider what’s included in the membership, such as coaching, access to padel courts, tournaments, etc.
Padel can be a relatively inexpensive sport to get started in, and the costs of equipment will generally depend on your budget and what type of quality equipment you would like.
When it comes to clothing and shoes, there are many good quality options available for those on a budget. You can find comfortable, athletic shoes for around $50, and elasticised padel shorts and shirts are also widely available. DuraFit tennis has a wide range of padel clothing, with prices ranging from $30-120, depending on the material and brand.
The most important piece of equipment you will need is a padel racket. There are many options available and it is important to consider the materials, weight, balance and size of the racket, as these will affect your performance and enjoyment of the sport. Rackets can range in price from $30 to over $300, so it is important to do some research and decide what type of racket is right for you.
Good quality padel balls are also important, as they can directly affect the speed and trajectory of your shots. A set of four balls will typically cost around $15, but it is important to remember to replace them when necessary, as they lose bounce over time.
For those who are serious about padel, specialist gear such as noise cancelling headphones and appropriate eyewear can also help improve your enjoyment and performance.
