Du padel on CNN, it's a reality. One of the most famous news channels in the world is beginning to focus on this sport which, according to it, has nearly 25 million players worldwide, spread over 90 countries. Whether pickleball remains one of the benchmark racquet sports in the United States, padel begins to dig its hole in the country of Uncle Sam, even if we remain very far from the fervor that we find on the Old Continent. Indeed, in 2021, it is estimated that 15 new plots of padel have been registered in Europe. And that's not counting the 20 tracks in Spain.

"Le padel is expected to become more and more popular" says tennis star Andy Murray. The one who invested in Game4Padel continues:

"I think the padel will continue to grow (…), the tennis clubs will continue to resent it.

One of my former coaches, Jonas Björkman, former world number 1 in doubles and number 4 in singles, plays all the time. He opened a number of centers in Sweden.

Feliciano Lopez, with whom I have played doubles several times on the circuit, also plays there regularly.

It is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. I think it will continue to grow; that clubs will continue to want to build courts and that there will be more and more demand.”
