With the rise in popularity of the latest racquet sport, Padel, Qatar fans will be delighted that there’s a new place to play – Doha Oasis.

Doha Oasis has announced the opening of its new Padel courts, located outdoor next to the iconic dome garden facility. There are three double-player courts that are open to the general public and can be booked using Doha Oasis Padel App or on the Doha Oasis website.

To celebrate the opening of the new courts, the first Padel Tournament at Doha Oasis took place over three days at the end of March. Open to players of all levels, there were five categories for men, women and mixed teams playing in pairs. Victor Agha, CEO of Doha Oasis, said: “Qatar established itself as a world-class destination for sport and athletes, and we are proud to showcase our commitment to the social wellbeing of both our residents and the general public of Qatar by the introduction of these state-of-the-art courts to be at the service of Qatar’s citizens and residents. “We were happy to see a series of entertaining matches and to see our guests competing in a healthy environment and enjoying their time with their family and friends here at Doha Oasis”

Carla Pregigueiro, CEO of Padel Club, which joined with Doha Oasis to organise the tournament, added: “We are happy to organise one more tournament in Qatar and happy to cooperate with Doha Oasis on this event. It’s a new location on the map of Padel in Qatar and we hope that after the tournament more people will come to play there. The event was of great success thanks to the support of our team, our partners, and sponsors.”

The new courts are open daily from 2pm to 10pm and can be rented for QR300 per hour. ✤
