Download Press Release

The International Padel competitive framework increases with a new tournament category of the CUPRA FIP TOUR. The International Padel Federation (FIP) establishes 1 new category with the purpose of homogenizing the different tournament of the FIP Tour, a circuit meant as launch pad for all players aiming to compete in profession Padel. Moreover, this will ensure a more consistent balance among tournaments awarding point for the world ranking.

The FIP PLATINUM will henceforth be the new maximum category for the CUPRA FIP TOUR, whilst keeping the same competition format as the rest of the Tournament organised by the International Federation. Namely, 32 pairings in the main draw with a maximum of 32 pairing competing – without any ranking restriction – in a qualification stage.

The new tournaments will award 200 FIP points to the winner and a minimum prize money of 60.000€ in both male and female categories.

The category details and the confirmed tournaments for the ongoing season will be disclosed shortly.

The Member Federations willing to organise the new tournament category for the second half of this year or for the 2023 season are already entitled to apply, notwithstanding the existing organizational requirements demanded by the FIP to ensure a proper event delivery.
