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.
