Here we answer the most common questions regarding indoor projects.
The size of a paddle court is 10x20 meters. This dimension refers to the playing surface, ie the dimension inside. The courses from JuBo Padel have an outer dimension of 10.6x20.6m, as a result of the construction being 30cm on each side. The construction consists of glass, post, possibly. frame and anchor plate (which is 10mm thick). The corresponding dimensions for a single course are a playing surface of 6x20m and an outer dimension of 6.6x20.6m.
The webs can be specially manufactured to have a smaller dimension, but must then be compensated with other measures to achieve a stable web (and something else is not an option).
We have put together a detailed description of the course's dimensions and nature. Read about this here >>>
Between the runways, there must be a minimum of 90cm, which corresponds to the dimensions that the fire brigade usually wants for the escape routes. Normally, this measure is counted between the anchor plates, but there are municipalities / fire authorities that count between post to post, as there are only every other meter that there are anchor plates / posts. Thus, the measurement between the playing surfaces is 150 cm (90 + 30 + 30cm), which also gives an airy feeling. Read more about course facts here >>>
The dimension between the track and the wall depends a bit on whether you want to have access to come in between and polish the glass sections on the outside of the track. An absolute minimum size is 20 cm (from construction / anchor plate to wall), but where 25-30 cm is recommended.
If the dimensions of the room do not allow the possibility of plastering the windows from the outside, the track can be installed close to the wall. Partly with a standard arrangement, ie the anchor plate (30 cm) is placed close to the wall. On the one hand, there are opportunities to manufacture smaller dimensions on anchor plate and posts, and compensate for this by finding a stable solution against the wall. We can then come down to about 15 cm. This system is tailored at an additional cost. Read more about course facts here >>>
Many people want one or more center courts where, for example, they allow games off the court and also have spectators. If the spectators are on the short side, the Panoramic model is useful when visibility is better.
When it comes to games off the course, FIP (International Padel Federation) requires that there is a playable zone of 2x8 meters (see the picture next to it). According to regulations, EVERY course must have this. BUT there is a rule that has started to be used which is called that if you state in the local competition regulations before the competition that games outside the course are allowed by the zone can be used by two courses. Should any player be disturbed, the ball is replayed.
Note that regardless of the alternative, the zone should be clearly marked and you should ensure that the zone is free of trash, bags and other things. And so that people do not use the aisle as a passage.
If you want to limit the ball flight, so that the balls do not interfere with adjacent courses, you can set up safety nets. JuBo Padel offers safety nets and cables at competitive prices. The installation is done by the customer himself as we do not have the right training for work at high altitude for our installers (and the fact that we had some fall accidents with our installers, which ended with broken legs etc).
When it comes to ventilation and heating, this is a LARGE area with MANY different solutions. There are simple and inexpensive solutions that I think work. There are also the most common solutions where the issues are resolved with a local company that knows ventilation and heating. Then it also depends a bit on what is required locally from the municipalities.
I would primarily recommend contacting a local company that deals with ventilation and heating.
The simple solution, which some customers have and which works excellently, is to put supply air valves on one side of the hall. On the opposite side you put fans that suck out the air. This means that the air you suck out, the corresponding air enters via the supply air valves. So we can, with the help of dimension and capacity from the fans, control how much air flow you want / need. To prevent colds in the winter, heat pumps (air / air) are placed just below the supply air valves, so that the air that enters can be heated before it goes on.
This is a solution that I practiced a lot at my own gyms that I rebuilt (ran / owned / built gyms between 1990-2015), but is not a popular solution with the ventilation companies (as this means that they do not sell their machines that do the same thing). ). One who has done this is Magnus Olsén at Manges Padel in Garphyttan. Magnus built his own hall in wood (2 lanes) and made this system that worked great. If you are considering this, I recommend a visit to his hall which is located outside Örebro (and thus not so far from Stockholm). There can be a lot of money in using this principle / solution, which is really only based on common sense.
The more traditional recommendation is that you contact a local ventilation company that will help you with ventilation and heating.
