The Iconic Padel Court revolutionizes the concept of design for the sport: a combination of aesthetics and technology at the highest level for maximum performance and wellness.

Iconic Padel Court is a court with a customizable interface and modular features designed for the discerning player, integrating innovative design with the industry’s most advanced technologies, including the ability to review actions and movements to gather useful data in order to improve game performance.

Pininfarina is expanding its sphere of action by bringing its expertise to the world of design - from cars to product to architecture - and its unique design approach, a combination of aesthetics and technology, to the world of sports design. The studio, Turin-based by origin and international by vocation, has been commissioned by ICONIC to create the Iconic Padel court. It takes design for sports to a completely new level, revolutionizing the player’s experience and the playing environment.

Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman of Pininfarina Group states: “Padel has become a global phenomenon, a way of life. Iconic Padel Court combines timeless beauty with the best technology available for players, offering an all-around Pininfarina experience. The design respects nature and embodies sport at the highest level, encapsulating sophistication and innovation in an unparalleled concept. The synergy between Iconic and Pininfarina comes from the intersection of wellbeing in sport and aesthetic design.”

“It is a source of great satisfaction for us to have partnered with such a historic made-in-Italy brand as Pininfarina,” said Leonardo Giangreco Biancheri, CEO of Iconic. “Pininfarina’s design embodies the values of quality, precision and performance we desired for Iconic Padel Court. We are honoured to be able to work together in creating a court that is unique in style and functionality.”

Technology, sport, and lifestyle come together in the Iconic Padel Court. The design optimizes the player’s experience and performance through continuous interaction with court components, physical or remote. The court is compliant with the standards of the International Padel Federation, it can be installed anywhere in the world and can be freestanding or fixed to the ground depending on the client’s needs. It integrates innovative finishings and materials including fiberglass coating, laminated tempered glass with concealed ground fixing, faux leather protectors, as well as perfectly integrated LEDs, displays and cameras.


Extremely flexible and modular, the court is equipped with innovative technological systems. The net tending poles, for example, are designed as real access hubs through two integrated touch displays and voice assistant. It is in fact possible to manage parameters such as field lighting or glass defrosting, adapting energy consumption and, at the same time, ensuring the best possible game experience. Each post also includes an automatic tensioning system for the game net, for a padel experience that is always at the highest levels, and a ball pressurization module, to considerably increase their useful life. The field is also equipped with a recharging stations for electronic devices.

In addition, 4 cameras are perfectly integrated into the structure in each light post at a height of 6 meters. Through the use of artificial intelligence, they can analyze all the movements in the court returning an in-depth analysis of the game. Four more wide-angle cameras (two in the short sides and one for each net post) are used for the sole purpose of fun and social sharing. All cameras are easily manageable through two touch displays integrated in glass panels through which it is possible to work on training sessions and change the score of the game shown in the scoreboards which are also integrated into the structure.

“Iconic Padel Court is a unique and exclusive offer in the universe of padel. We are thrilled to collaborate with Pininfarina and proud to participate in the creation of this masterpiece of sports design, a luxury product that meets the expectations of the most demanding and refined player,” says Miguel Bonilla, Iconic’s Global Sales Director.

Iconic Padel Court is available for pre-sale and deliveries will be made by the end of 2023.
