Spain joins the European Committee

It has been almost a month and a half after the change of the structure within the Spanish Padel Federation and the new direction of the institution, in the country with the biggest number of players, is beginning to be remarkable.

After the appointment of the new Presidency and Board, the Spanish Padel Federation has shown its interest in the work for the development of Padel together with the official and most important institutions of our sport.

Therefore, we would like to congratulate José Pérez García, vice-president of the Spanish Padel Federation, for his new integration into the European Committee. Without a doubt, having the Spanish representation, with all the experience it can bring, will make our sport grow even more on the European continent.

From the International Padel Federation, we are happy to find that one of the Federations with more history in our sport wants to work and, therefore, go hand in hand with the officiality. A new stage for Padel, where the most important Federations in the World are already part of the European, American, and Asia-Pacific Committees actively cooperating, looking only for the good of Padel to achieve the common objectives set.

FIP RISE MONTEVIDEO

More than a tournament, a great event for hope

 

In August we get informed through the Uruguayan Padel Association (AAP) the reactivation of its calendar with strict security protocols.

 

The reactivation put the entire institution to work to recover the maximum number of tournaments of the annual calendar. This means that every two weeks the country has in different cities a stage of its different circuits and classifications for international events.

 

As a result of good work in tournaments, complying with the measures, they have made the government see that Padel is a safe sport, authorizing the realization of an international event.

 

Almost coinciding with the reactivation of the competition, the largest club in the country, Iguana Padel, strategically located in the capital Montevideo, was inaugurated. This confirms that Padel continues to grow steadily in a historic country of our sport.

 

The club will host its first major international event, thanks to the efforts of the Uruguayan Padel Association, from November 13 to 15 with a FIP RISE in men’s category. The most important characteristic of this tournament, apart from the important prize money of $ 3,000, is that the best national pair will participate directly in the CUPRA FIP FINALS on behalf of Uruguay.

 

Without a doubt, for the Padel community, especially for the American continents, it is a glimmer of hope. Since many countries are on the verge of restarting their competitions, having a “neighboring” country to look at will be able to demonstrate that our sport does not cause contagion as long as all the necessary measures are respected.
