Bay Padel’s Popularity Feautured on KTVU FOX 2

Published on February 13, 2024

The sport of padel has caught on with Bay Area residents, now flocking to Treasure Island’s Bay Padel.

Treasure Island, known for its rich history and visionary transformation, has emerged as a hotspot for padel enthusiasts. Padel, a racquet sport often described as a blend of tennis and squash, has found a rapidly growing audience at Bay Padel, the Bay Area’s first padel and pickleball club.

Temporarily housed in a former naval airplane hangar, Bay Padel welcomes members and non-members alike, both seasoned athletes and curious newcomers. Like other local businesses, Bay Padel is making use of the island’s existing infrastructure to launch ahead of the master-planned neighborhood on the horizon.

Yet, even the temporary accommodations deliver a rich, memorable experience, with Bay Padel offering lounges, a gym, a pro shop, and even a coworking space and an art gallery. Indoors, players step onto their court in the same hangar where several of the “Pacific Unity” sculptures are stored, first shown to the world at the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition. On the outdoor courts, players enjoy the city’s best view of the San Francisco skyline and Bay Bridge.
