The city’s first “padel” club will open in a 30,000-square-foot Williamsburg warehouse next year. No, it’s not spelled wrong. And padel is not paddle tennis or pickleball. It is, however, a fast-growing sport that fans say is fun and easy to play.
But in case that’s not enough to make the Brooklyn business viable at 307 Kent Avenue, the club will have a restaurant, too.
The facility, to be called Padel Haus, is the brainchild of Santiago Gomez, who is the co-founder of the Mexican restaurants Cosme and ATLA. A 10-year lease has been signed for the space.
