Berkeley has launched a state-of-the-art new padel club at its landmark regeneration scheme The Green Quarter in Southall, West London. Padel is considered the world’s fastest growing sport, and Berkeley is the first major developer to provide these facilities on a residential scheme in the UK. The courts are the latest initiative at The Green Quarter delivered to enhance health and wellbeing by encouraging physical exercise, time spent in nature and creating opportunities to socialise.

Operated by the UK’s leading padel operator Game4Padel, Parkside Padel Club forms part of the onsite community hub. Padel is very sociable because it’s played in doubles, highly accessible because of the ease in which it can be learned and enjoyed by beginners and professionals alike.

In addition, The Green Quarter’s bike scheme is delivering a fleet of 30 bikes across eight docking stations near Southall Station and around the development. Providing greener, more convenient commutes and encouraging residents to spend more time outdoors, they will have access to bikes within the development to explore the newly-opened 1km canal path lining the Grand Union Canal, to the top of the development opposite Southall Station.

The development’s latest showhome is also designed with holistic wellness in mind. The interiors have been curated to embody comfort and calm, with natural tones and finer details including a MAGIC AI fitness mirror, and a yoga and fitness station.

Charlotte Berrington, Sales and Marketing Director Berkeley says: “Berkeley is passionate about creating successful places where communities thrive and people of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy a great quality of life. The padel courts are a fantastic addition to the array of public amenities already available at The Green Quarter, and a perfect showcase of what we want to deliver and achieve here. We’re creating a new place that, above all, prioritises the well-being of its residents and the local community. I can think of no better way to encourage people to get outside, to get together, and to support their physical and mental health through exercise.”

The Green Quarter is one of the most significant regeneration projects in the UK and is set to become one of the most biodiverse developments in London. The landmark development comprises a collection of contemporary homes set across four distinct character areas, a landscape-led design including 13 acres of parkland, podium gardens and water frontage, as well as amenities including a gym, screening room, concierge and co-working space along with the onsite community hub with a café, lifestyle stores, creative arts centre, tree nursery and much more.
