Broughton and District Tennis Club has lodged plans with Preston City Council for a new padel court.

Padel is a hugely popular game around the world and is played on a court which is two thirds the size of a normal tennis court.

Combining elements of squash, tennis and badminton, it is popular in countries such as Spain, Portugal and Mexico, with its following in the UK growing in recent years.
