Team GB prepares for the World Padel Championships in October


The countdown has begun. Great Britain’s men’s and senior national teams are preparing to participate in the World Padel Championships next month.


Following the outstanding results achieved by our Men’s team at the World Championships 2016, we are proud to announce that the team will be competing at the upcoming World Padel Championships 2018.

The World Padel Championships by IPF (International Padel Federation) is the largest international padel competition open to elite players from around the world, representing their countries. Taking place every two years, it gives countries the chance to fight for the highest achievement in the sport – to become world champions.

This year’s edition will be hosted by the Paraguayan Padel Federation in their capital, Asuncion, from October 29 – November 3.

Also happening in October but in Malaga, Spain is the first-ever Senior Padel World Championship. The event will take place in October 5 – 13 at Club de Racquet Villa Padierna and at Centro Deportivo Las Mesas.

This is another very exciting initiative not just for senior padel players but for the entire padel community, as it will be key in helping attract further participants for the sport.
