Chichester Racquets & Fitness club

On the 23rd of December 2020 Chichester Racquets and Fitness club opened its Padel courts.

Established in 1964, Chichester Racquets & Fitness Club (CRAFC) is a member’s club with tennis, squash, racketball and Padel facilities, along with a modern gym and wet suite. 

Set in the heart of the historic city of Chichester, with views over rolling parkland, the club is dedicated to providing high level sports and fitness facilities in a modern environment. 

The club has a clear aim to provide the best opportunities to play, learn and compete in Padel for everyone. 

The club hosts monthly introductory workshops, free of charge, to anyone who is interested in learning the basics of the game.

Padel is a form of tennis that is easy to play, fun and extremely sociable. It is played mainly in a doubles format on an enclosed court about a third of the size of a tennis court and can be played in groups of mixed ages and abilities.

The club has an excellent reputation for the promotion of racket sports and fitness, with a relaxed warm and friendly atmosphere.

The club offers not only competitive Padel but also social Padel in order to connect with their vibrant community of Padel lovers.

They have an engaging range of fun competitions, weekly match-play sessions and social events. Whatever your level, they’re a fantastic way to meet new people to play with.

They have two state of the art courts which can be booked via their website.
