Member 33! Welcome Denmark!

ANOTHER NATIONAL PADEL ASSOCIATION JOINS THE FIP !

 

Yesterday was a day to be noted in bold letters in the World Padel Agenda.

Yesterday, during their weekly meeting, the Board of Directors of the International Padel Federation accepted the candidacy of the Dansk Padel Forbund (Danish Padel Association).

We have to inform that the Danish Padel Association was established in July 2009, by Linda Johannsen, Flemming Lauenborg, Torben Larsen and Helle Pedersen who were the pioneers, and who first contacted the FIP offices.

Recently, the Danish Padel Federation make an Extraordinary General Meeting and it was changed the Board, today composed by Alvaro Maldonado (President), Paulina Andreasson (Vice-President), Ainoa Richer Jørgensen (Secretary) and Maria Louise Streif Garrouj (Treasure). We gives to all of them our warm welcome.

We acknowledge there are various clubs in Denmark waiting for this decision, in order to be able to includes the players in the official FIP tournaments and championships and to have Danish players in the official FIP ranking, organise official courses with the FIP Educational School, bring some official FIP Tournament to Denmark, and look forward to have an organised structure controlling Padel in the country, including all Padel clubs already established, and to start with cooperation projects with the Scandinavian colleagues of Sweden, Finland and Norway.

We are very happy to have a new Member, and we are already 33 !

The DPA headquarters are now located in Odense, in the middle of the country, and it will be the Federation centre from where Padel will be managed in all Denmark.
