UK based Game4Padel expands — lands in Australia
Game4Padel, the UK's largest padel chain, is expanding its operations. They have now opened their first club in Australia, Game4Padel Melbourne.
It’s the first move outside of the UK for Game4Padel, with backers including Andy Murray and Virgil Van Dijk. The company’s expansion into Australia has been funded by a fifth fundraising round, valuing the business at more than £23m and increasing its investor base to 85 shareholders, according to the UK Padel magazine The Bandeja.
Game4Padel Melbourne hosted the early rounds of the Australian Padel Open at its four-court Docklands location.
Over 150 players worldwide participated in the first Australian Padel Open in history, vying for a total prize pot of $20,000.
Another new feature is that Game4Padel has been named the exclusive distributor for Instantpadel courts in Australia and New Zealand.
