When Padel Zenter opens another world-class facility, the choice of landlord falls on OOF Group. The facility is being built in Östra Fyrislund and the lease is running for ten years.
Padel Zenter was founded by Thomas Sandström and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Even in early contacts with OOF Group, Thomas Sandström, CEO and founder, was clear that they were looking for and facilities of the highest international class.
"Uppsala is Sweden's fourth largest city and has always been of interest. When the opportunity to establish a large facility in a good geographical location that at the same time met our high requirements for, for example, free play height, the decision was simple," says Thomas Sandström.
The racquet sport padel is one of the world's fastest growing sports and is on the rise in Sweden. The sport is reminiscent of a mix of tennis and squash.
OOF Group has signed a ten-year lease with Padel Zenter. The facility will be built in Östra Fyrislund, Uppsala's new industrial and commercial area next to the E4. The facility will be Padel Zenter's largest to date with eleven courses, all with ten meters of free play height, as well as an associated reception, shop, lounge, gym, sports clinic, sauna and conference facilities. Doors will open in the spring of 2021.
"A long-term and committed paddle operator in international top class was high on our wish list. The new facility will be a valuable addition to Uppsala," says Robert Eek, CEO of OOF Group.
