World Padel Championships 2016: Team GB through to finals

Last weekend at the qualifying round of the World Padel Championships 2016 in Vilnius, Lithuania, the British team produced a fantastic result for padel in the UK. Team GB managed to beat all 3 countries – The Netherlands, Finland and Lithuania – and classify for the world finals. The event will take place in the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, from the 14th to the 20th November.

On social media, Head Coach Mauri Andrini described the result as a ‘huge achievement’ and was very happy with the team’s performance. For the first time the team was formed by three under 18 players – Sam Jones, Christian Murphy and Connor Silkman – who did not let the team down and performed to a very high standard.

British Padel is honoured to have the support of Lead Partner Air Europa and Official Partners Babolat UK and David Lloyd Leisure in this journey. We look forward to more action in November.
