Condor Grass Padel

The Condor Grass Padel surfaces have been approved in accordance with the quality criteria of the International Padel Federation (FIP).

The Condor Grass GM12 and Condor Grass GM15, as well as the Condor Grass MP-I surfaces, were all tested by Spanish testing institute Instituto de Biomecánica (IBV). The surfaces comply with the criteria defined in UNE 147301, which is the only international reference specifically for Padel surfaces at present.

The two GM surfaces are made of monofilament fibres, while the MP-I surface uses fibrillated yarn.

Both monofilament surfaces have only 4kg/m2 stabilizing sand, leaving a greater free pile height than other artificial grass Padel surfaces. This has the additional advantage that the surfaces deliver a more natural and enjoyable ball bounce. The fibrillated surface performs best with 6kg/m2 stabilizing sand. To avoid movement of the turf, clamping the edges of the turf or fully glue the turf is recommended.

The Condor Grass artificial turf surfaces for Padel are ready available in the usual colours clay-red, blue and green. Other colours are also possible. The surface outside the cage can be supplied in multiple other colours, different from the court in case desired.
