A Spanish retailer specializing in padel, a tennis-like sport, will open its first U.S. store in Miami’s Wynwood district.
Pādel Nuestro signed a five-year deal for 3,000 square feet at 310-318 Northwest 25th Street.
Pādel Nuestro is Spain’s largest purveyor of padel rackets, shoes and accessories. The sport is a mash-up of tennis and squash. Padel has the same scoring system as tennis, but the balls and rackets are unique to padel. The courts have walls, and balls can be played off the walls as in squash or racquetball. Overhand serves aren’t allowed in padel.
The new store is less than two miles from Wynwood Padel Club, which has eight courts, and Real Padel Miami. It will feature a demo area where enthusiasts can test gear.
Pādel Nuestro sells gear made by such brands as Asics, Head and Adidas.
