“Oliver Tom” Championships


On June 18th the first “Oliver Tom” Championships were held in Tokyo in presence of Yoichi Takahashi the creator of “Oliver Tom”.

Profesor Yoichi is a big Padel fan. He plays once a week for already a year. He discovered Padel 2 years ago during a trip to Barcelona.

He wants Padel to become a far more popular sport worldwide.

11 y.o. and representing Mexico at the next World Championships

We want to be one thousand!


The International Padel Federation launch “the challenge” to arrive to “one thousand” and reach a new record in the participation to an official Championships.

The idea is to achieve the “four digits” in the next World Padel Juniors Championships, to be held in Malaga, Spain, next October.

The appointment with the World Guinness “Padel” Record is fixed for the Sunday 8th when the youth and juniors, boys and girls, from fourteen countries will perform the parade in the beaches of Malaga.

And from 9th to 14th all kids arrived to the Final Phase will be ready to play, in the thirty (30) courts distributed by El Candado, La Capellanía and Inacua Racket Centre clubs.

The new “Open” rules allow all players of the World to take part at the World Juniors Championships, it is only necessary to have a licence from a National Federation member of the International Padel Federation, obtain the Padel-PIN in it’s web-site, and make the sign-up.

The Qualifying Round will start the week before the main event, and the exact day will depends on the received sign-ups.

The Official Teams of Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Finland, Great Britain, Italy, Mexico, Paraguay, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Uruguay and USA will be in Malaga, to play, to compete and also to enjoy for a full week of friendship with the best juniors players of the World.

We appreciate the work of the Organising Committee, the supporters and sponsors, and we renovate the invitation to all youth and juniors to sign-up to the World Championships.

In the following the names of Juniors Champions, all important but just some underlined, who are playing in the professional circuit with good performance, to clearly identify the possibilities of the next generations:

1º Prosonic Open 2017 – Portugal

The International Padel Federation invited to the Crans Montana Forum 2017

The International Padel Federation invited to the Crans Montana Forum 2017.

The International Padel Federation was honoured to be invited to the 28th Annual Session of the Crans Montana Forum.

The main argument of this edition is :

Strategies for Stability in an unpredictable Environment
Towards a new Governance

The President Daniel Patti will participate to all the sessions and mainly with a brief speech in the international conference:


“Sport Diplomacy” represents a new tool for Securing Peace and Stability in many regions of the World including the Mediterranean
Youth can become an essential Actor of International Peace Efforts
Indeed Sport Ethics and Basic Values are universal and “Peace Making”
Therefore relations between Governments and Sport Movements & Organisations have to be reconsidered and improved.

The Credibility of Sport and its values must be protected :
a) the awarding of Great Events must be Transparent and Monitored
b) the Financial Management of Sport Activities must be Transparent
The need to put an end to scandals and shape a new financial approach for Sport activities management
Determining modalities and mechanism for a change in depth in a near future

Also Mr. Pere Hernández I Ripoll, FIP Board of Directors member, will attend the Crans Montana Forum, on 5th to 8th of July.

The International Padel Federation enhance and reinforce its international vocation and behaviour, being recognised by well known World organisations, including the FIP in their activities and projects.

The Board of Directors consider the invitation and the participation to the Crans Montana Forum as an important and prestigious fact in favour of the definitive consolidation of our sport and our institution in The World.
For this reason we would like to share with you all this wonderful new, fruit of the performed work of any person, toward the Padel development.
