Construction of a four-court padel centre has commenced at Meadow Lane.
The facility, titled Nottingham Padel Centre, will be the only venue of its kind within a 40-mile radius of the stadium.
Padel, which could be described as a mix between tennis and squash, is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world due to its fun, easy to learn and sociable nature.
It's played mainly in a doubles format on an enclosed court and can be played in groups of mixed ages and abilities as it's not power dominant.
The rules are broadly the same as tennis, although you serve underhand and the walls are used as part of the game with the ball allowed to bounce off them.
A statement from our board of directors reads: “We’re delighted that work has commenced on a project which will drive new revenue for the club and enhance Nottingham’s reputation as an incredible city of sport.
“We’re confident the facility will attract people from across the East Midlands and we’re looking forward to seeing the courts in action.”
The centre will be operated by the club and is expected to open later this summer.
