The team comprises Under 14, Under 16 and Under 18 girls and boys, who will play in two categories: National Team, and World Championship for Pairs.

The main venue is the Club el Candado, to the east of Malaga city, which has seven Crystal padel courts, a 600 spectator capacity central court, and a court one with space for 250 spectators. National teams will be housed in the Colegio Unamuno, which is about two kilometers from El Candado.
