A Historical event, not only for being the first World Padel Championship hosted in Asia but also for being recognised as the best organised competition in our sport.
Since Doha has been appointed as a host city – at the beginning of 2020 – the International Federation has been working to deliver to the federations and the player a project worthy of the outstanding development of our sport and the culmination has been the Qatar Ooredoo World Padel Championship.
The facilities and the experienced organisation of the Qatar Federation, a member of the FIP, contributed to realise a top-quality tournament with the best possible guarantees.
The Padel World Cup in Doha has been unanimously defined by players, press and spectators as:
“The best tournament in Padel history”
Most importantly, the numbers recorded to confirm the uniqueness, the quality, the extensive participation, and the media coverage of the tournament:
