Padel has arrived in the Olympic Capital

Lausanne welcomes the first padel court.

A new project related to our sport has been undertaken in the city of the Olympic rings.
The new padel court is located in the epicentre of the well-known Olympic Movement. It has been built-up in Vidy, near the Olympic Committee -currently under construction; in front of the GAISF HQ (Global Association of International Sports Federations) and SportAccord.

From FIP we would like to applaud the new project as well as to show our conviction that padel is moving forward in terms of its international awareness and projection.

Certainly, after a trial for a period of time, the structure could be a new member of the SPV (Schweizer Padel Verband) -the Swiss Padel Federation, and, in that case, it would be possible to host official activities. So far, this new court has sport promotional purposes only.

Without leaving Switzerland yet, we are glad to remind you that the “II Zurich Padel Open FIP 500” will take place next week in Padelclub Unterengstringen, from 29 August until 2 September.
