Employees (included Phd-students) at NTNU in Gjøvik can play padel on courts for two or four players. This is initially a trial project in spring 2023 and NTNU-funded padel is possible as long as there are available "credits". Padel takes place within "one hour of training during working hours" and courts are therefore initially booked for one hour. Initiative for game time or registration for playing takes place via the Teams team "Padel at NTNU in Gjøvik" (https:~// Padel is reserved for employees and neither friends nor family should participate in games financed by NTNU.
