Ashtead Padel

3 miles up the hill from their fantastic and noisy neighbours at Epsom Padel, is Ashtead Tennis and squash club who added one padel court in 2021.

The village of Ashtead is on the northern slopes of the North Downs and is in the catchment area of The Rye, a tributary of the River Mole.  Ashtead squash and Tennis club is the very definition of convivial, 10 minutes walk from the village high street you are immediately in a sports oasis as the welcoming white clubhouse with flowers outside, and a top quality Italian Padel court beautifully positioned to the side of a grand old oak. 

Ashtead has long been famous in squash circles for having a bar that you can walk directly into after a game off squash, and the excellent committee did not want to let down the Padel section, introducing the Tipple Box, a converted horse box but just a bandeja from the entrance to the padel court. 

With regular leagues, and two new coaches introduced this summer Ashtead Padel certainly has plans to use the Padel court to drive overall usage of the club, in fact it was described as the saviour of the club coming out of the first lockdown in 2021, with squash and new members flocking to the Padel court. 

With the addition of two new coaches in Dan west and jo Robinson this is a great place for the whole family to get playing padel, and we know as we play there regularly and love the place, you won’t go wrong getting in touch with Ashtead Padel:
