The 360° Padel Group is the largest specialized padel platform globally and the owner of “Siux”, a renowned premium padel brand. Headquartered in Madrid, the group was founded in 2010 and rapidly expanded into the largest specialized padel platform and market reference.

The 360° Padel Group has grown meaningfully since then by focusing on an omnichannel strategy, combining various specialist websites with almost 80 physical stores and presence in more than 500 padel clubs across the world. As of today, the company employs approximately 200 people and generates 50% of its revenues in foreign markets.

OMMAX advised Ergon Capital with a digital due diligence for both B2B and B2C platforms including a business model overview with a depiction of sales funnels and the historical development of key online KPIs and an audit along key digital capabilities. In addition, tech analyses were executed, and value creation initiatives defined.

It was a pleasure to work with the management of Ergon on this successful acquisition. The 360° Padel Group is a market leader in a sport that we believe will expand rapidly across many countries. Additionally,the growth of such successful digital business models is very exciting!
