Burgess Hill Padel club

Burges Hill Padel club at the Triangle in West Sussex has a unique claim to fame, the first court to be built at a local authority leisure centre in the UK in July 2019.

As a leisure centre they were always encouraging more people to get active, but the addition of padel gave them the ability to offer new opportunities for the local community to be active. 

They used a funding model that will no doubt prick up the ears of other council sites, funded entirely by section 106 developer contributions, basically financial payments made by housing developers in Burgess hill that then fund unfractured improvements. 

The Triangle said: “We’re so proud to be the first locally funded authority leisure centre in the UK to have this court.

“It’s a fantastic addition to the Triangle, and we’re so excited to have it on board.

“We’re excited to get more people on board, and to encourage people to get more active.”
