Padel and Social Club

  James and Ethel Gray Park, 69 North Street, Melrose St, Syferfontein 51-Ir      +27 76 939 0967     18 Jan 2024
Bring your competitive spirit and a healthy appetite to the Padel and Social Club at the lovely James and Ethel Gray Park in Melrose, where the café and bar are surrounded by padel courts. It's a fun outdoor family attraction with people of all ages sporting padel rackets hanging out, relaxing after a walk in the park, a game, or watching the action on the courts.

On good weather days, of which Joburg has many, the place is super busy. It's also open until 22:00 daily amid the well-lit courts and with secure parking, makes a great after-hours activity spot. Padel and Social Club also host birthday parties and team-building events, and offer coaching, and there are several social clubs to join if you're in the mood, including the Ms Hits and Madams of Mayhem for women wanting to learn the sport. All information is available on the Playtomic app.

The restaurant has a coffee counter if you're on-the-go, and casual food to re-fuel post-match. We rate the frittata (Spanish pan-omelettes) or try the smoothie bowls, rustic sandwiches and tortillas, as well as yummy pizzas and bar snacks to share. The drinks menu is compact yet comprehensive, and there's a menu for little champs as well. 


The Padel and Social Club in Melrose is a short drive from the Rosebank Gautrain station.
