The Pure Padel team

People are at the heart of everything we do.

We have an ambition to make Padel tennis the most inclusive racquet sport in the UK and as part of that we have assembled a top class team of talented people to help us build the UK's biggest network of clubs.

Exceptional individuals in their own fields who share the same passion and ambitions to make Pure Padel a unique part of the British sporting landscape.

Sammy Arora

Co-founder and Head of Commercial Operations

I first played Padel in 2018, when I was fortunate to win a raffle prize and the chance to play with Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool FC's training ground. It was the first time I was able to get a rally going with my family, who aren't racquet sport players! This is when I realised how unique and accessible padel truly is. My aim is to grow the sport by making it accessible to anyone regardless of age, gender, ability etc. Because padel is so 'easy to pick up' and fun, it provides people with a great way to socialise competitively and keep active!

Fraser Higson

Co-founder and Head of Expansion

I first played padel 18 months ago at a corporate event in Harrogate. With over 20 years experience in corporate hospitality and events, I realised at this event that padel was a complete game changer. As padel has the perfect blend of competitiveness, social, fun and activity, I believe we can provide a truly unique way for companies to entertain their clients or colleagues. My aim is to grow padel across the sport and make it accessible to everyone!
