from the community.
we are pallap. we are padel.

Behind our brand is a global team of passionate padel experts, players, coaches, world champions, engineers, and creatives who have set out to take our sport to a new level. Our brand name, pallap, is derived from the fusion of "padel" and "slap," resonating with the rhythmic sound of a racket hitting the ball and then the wall. It symbolizes the harmony and passion that connects players, equipment, the court, and life itself. We stand for performance, but we think beyond that. Our aim is to inspire padel players globally; for the community, from the community.
