Properly preparing a padel court is essential to ensure a smooth and safe game. However, certain maintenance mistakes can compromise its durability and quality. In this blog, we will guide you through what not to do when caring for your padel courts. From improper footwear to improper cleaning methods, find out how to avoid these mistakes and keep your courts in optimal playing condition.

1. The first step to the problem, using the wrong footwear.

One of the most common mistakes padel players make is wearing footwear that is not suitable for the sport. Padel requires quick movements, changes of direction and a lot of turns, so it is essential to have footwear specifically designed to provide stability, traction and lateral support.

Unsuitable padel shoes can increase the risk of injury, as well as contribute to premature wear and tear on the court surface. To protect both your performance and the integrity of the court, always be sure to wear proper footwear.

2. Improper cleaning methods

Another common mistake in padel court maintenance is the use of improper cleaning methods. Regular cleaning is essential to keep the court surface in optimal condition, but it is important to do it carefully and without compromising the integrity of the materials.

Avoid cleaning the court with pressurized water jets, as this can damage the surface and cause spalling or irregularities. Similarly, the use of aggressive solvents can corrode the materials and affect the court´s long-term durability.

Instead, opt for gentle and safe cleaning methods, such as cleaning with neutral soap and water, or using cleaning products specifically designed for padel courts. Also remember to use proper cleaning tools and equipment to avoid accidental damage.

3. Lack of preventive maintenance

Ignoring small problems, such as cracks or surface wear, can lead to major damage and costly repairs in the future. It is important to perform regular inspections of the court and address any problems in a timely manner to avoid further complications.

4. Failure to adequately protect the runway 

Adverse weather conditions, such as rain, wind and sun exposure, can have a negative impact on the court surface. Failure to adequately protect the court from inclement weather can accelerate its deterioration and reduce its useful life. Consider installing covers to protect the court and perform regular maintenance to prevent weather damage.
