In addition to the P9 event hall and the "Athletgym" fitness studio, the new padel facility will complement the range of public leisure facilities and thus make a key contribution to a lively meeting place. This new leisure offer will not only increase the attractiveness of the area, but also increase the range of indoor sports options for the population around Biberist.
"We are very much looking forward to the future leisure use and are convinced that the padel facility on the Papieri site will be an enrichment for the population in and around Biberist," says David Bendler, Head of Asset Management at HIAG.
The sports facility will be realised in a former production hall, which will also be preserved in the long term. The hall will be structurally upgraded to meet the latest energy requirements. After extensive construction work, the opening is planned for the first quarter of 2025. A further leisure use is planned for the remaining area of around 1,000 m², which will complement the range of sporting activities on offer.
Padelta has been driving the development of padel in Switzerland for two years and has set itself the goal of spreading the fascination of this sport throughout the country. The new location in the Papieri-Areal opens up a new region for padel enthusiasts. With a total of eight padel courts, Padelta offers optimal conditions for players of all levels. Padelta's own academy, run by the best coaches in Switzerland, provides professional training opportunities for beginners and ambitious players. In addition to the sporting aspect, the focus is on social interaction. As with all Padelta locations, a catering and event area is created to promote a lively community.
