Padel is a form of tennis that's rapidly growing across Europe. Played as doubles on an enclosed court about a third the size of a tennis court, it's innovative, fast-paced, exciting and extremely sociable! We are super pleased to launch LUSL Padel 2023-24.

Event Guide


Schedule to be confirmed after team entries are approved. 

Acceptance and Match Information

All institutions will be guaranteed at least pair up to event capacity. Please see Entry Information tab for more information on how to enter. 

Approved team entries will be published on the event page by Monday 01 April 2024. 

Draws will be released the Thursday prior to the event to ensure that, as much as possible, we maintain accurate seeding, while teams from the same institutions are split throughout the draws, after any withdrawals are received. The offical format will be decided once all entries have been collated. 

Tournament is a stand alone event. All timings for the day are provisional and subject to change. 


Any pairing unable to attend must inform Tanyel Mustafa (Regional Competitons Coordinator) as soon as possible, copying in their Athletic Union to ensure they are aware of the withdrawal.


  • Withdrawals prior Wednesday 03 April 2024 midday will still be charged the entry fee unless not accepted into the draw.
  • Withdrawals after 12pm on Wednesday 03 April 2024: £50
  • No shows pairs on the day: £100

LUSL Events 23-24 Policy

1. Prior to the event entry closing date, any entries submitted can be amended or removed. There is no charge to amend an entry prior to the deadline. Entry fees will not be charged for entries removed prior to the deadline.

2. Once the event entry closing date has passed, entry fees will be charged for all entries submitted except for where any of the following apply:

  • If BUCS has rejected an entry for not meeting the criteria, the institution will not be charged the entry fee. For example, an entry is rejected in Athletics for not meeting an entry standard.
  • If BUCS has rejected an entry due to the event having reached capacity, the institution will not be charged the entry fee. Please note: For events which operate a reserve list for entries not initially accepted into the event, if an entry is not withdrawn from the reserve list and is subsequently added to the event, the entry fee will be charged.

3. Once the event entry closing date has passed, most events do not charge a fine for withdrawals up to ‘x’ time prior to the event. However, after this period, most events will charge a fine for ‘late withdrawals’ or ‘no-shows’. This will all be detailed in the entry information for each event, including how withdrawal requests must be submitted. Fines for ‘late withdrawals’ or ’no-shows’ will not be charged where an individual/member of a team has to withdraw for medical reasons (and where applicable they are not able to be replaced) and this can be evidenced by a medical/doctor's note.

4. As mentioned in points 2 and 3, some events will offer the opportunity for institutions to replace individuals/teams who are no longer able to compete, using other individuals/teams entered elsewhere in the event or that they have registered on a specific reserve list. Any events which have a substitution policy will have this clearly detailed in the entry information. Alternatively, some events which are often oversubscribed will place any entries not initially accepted onto a reserve list and individuals/teams from this reserve list will be called up to replace any withdrawals/no-shows in accordance with the event specific policy.
