Padel Calgary Tournament

The Calgary Padel Club

We are a FUN, FUN, FUN club, with many members and lots of people to play padel with. We are not a members only club, we want everyone to play padel. Come to one of our drop-in nights and you'll see.  Practically no waiting around and everyone gets to play!  We always have barbecues, and many social events.  We also have certified padel instructors.  We do have a lot of FUN playing padel, but at the same time we are serious about providing the necessary padel instruction to everyone. To this end, we offer free padel lessons every Saturday as well as other beginner to advanced personal development programs.

You can Always get a GAME!

When you join the Calgary Padel Club you'll play more padel than you can handle.  No waiting around to find people to play with, our members PLAY, PLAY, PLAY!

There are at least 4 ways to do it:

  1. Come to our Drop-in Nights - You'll play padel till 10:00 PM.  A lot of people to play with, eager to play with you, they will always include you, nobody is left to sit by themselves, and you never lose your turn.
  2. Come to our Saturday Round Robin and BBQ - Round Robin play, a delicious BBQ for only 5 bucks, and then... play some more!  The day is young... nobody wants to go home.
  3. Arrange your own games. Just send a What's App message and you'll get lots of replies, once you have your first 3 replies you are set to go.
  4. Play in our Tournaments.  You'll have two days of FUN competition and play padel until you drop. Anyone can enter. For a mere ten dollar entry fee we usually guarantee at least 4 matches!
