As a result of the merger between the Dutch Padel Federation (NPB) and the Royal Dutch Lawn Tennis Association (KNLTB), the KNLTB is since the first of July 2020 the governing body of Padel in The Netherlands.
The mission of the organization is to grow Padel in quantity (courts and players) and quality (regulation and organization of the sport) promoting it through high visibility and making all events a positive experience. For example, the KNLTB advises and supports club management with regard to club strategy, accommodations and legal disputes.
The KNLTB will represent The Netherlands and promote Padel also in all international competitions and discussion forums, including the International Padel Federation.
The Netherlands is experiencing a very rapid growth in locations (200), courts (400) and licensed players (27.000).
