Highlights from the Global Padel Report (2023)

About a month ago, Playtomic and Deloitte (Monitor Deloitte) released their yearly “state of padel”-report called Global Padel Report.

It’s the second consecutive year Playtomic partner with Monitor Deloitte to release the report which normally is a fantastic read for all players following the sport closely.

The report focuses on the growth of the sport both from a leisure and professional perspective and also showcases the growth of the sport as an industry.

In the introduction of the report, Pablo Carro, the Co-Founder of Playtomic writes:

We are very certain about the fact that Padel has become a global sport, showcasing robust annual growth and promising signs of real traction in key-markets that will drive us to a 6 billion industry in 2026.

Pablo Carro (Co-Founder Playtomic) & Elena Martin (Senior Manager Monitor Deloitte)

That’s a phenomenal number. The report actually doesn’t mention whether this is euro (€) or dollar ($), but regardless it showcases the strength of the traction that Padel has gotten in a wide array of countries.

I’ll break down the key points from the report in a digestible manner in this post. Feel free to add your commentary or questions and I’ll get back to you.
