Antoine Sarroste, Sales Director at Bullpadel, talks about transformations and exponential growth of the company in recent years, with a "game-changing" surprise for 2024.

How Bullpadel has it evolved in France recently?

Antoine Sarroste (AS): We set up a French subsidiary more than 3 years ago. We were two sales people at the start, but we will soon be a team of four. Due to the massive evolution of the company, a reorganization was necessary, and that is what we are currently doing.

Bullpadel is a 100% brand padel.

Moreover, I would like to announce that we are looking for a sales representative for the North of France, who will also be responsible for managing the South of Belgium, mainly the French-speaking part.

You mentioned significant growth. Can you tell us more about this?

AS: Yes, absolutely. The last three years have been incredible. We managed to quadruple our turnover, which naturally means that we have to increase our workforce.

Bullpadel is also recognized for its innovative products. Can you tell us about the rackets you offered for the Human Padel Open?

AS: For the tournament, we offered two new racquets. For women, we introduced the Elite, a lightweight, teardrop-shaped hybrid racquet that's the perfect blend of power and control. The racket is made of carbon fiber and glass, which gives it great flexibility.

You also have a bestseller, don't you?

AS: Yes, it's the Vertex, a diamond-shaped racquet, ideal for players looking for power. She is particularly appreciated by Juan Tello. In addition, Martin Di Nenno plays with the Vertex Confort, a full carbon racquet that offers a lot of reactivity.

You recently collaborated with Vibram to improve your shoe range, right?

AS: It's true. We've always been strong on racquets, apparel and bags, but we knew we could still improve on footwear. Vibram, the leader in mountaineering and climbing footwear, has helped us create a range of hard-wearing and extremely comfortable shoes.

Finally, is there anything new on the horizon for Bullpadel ?

AS: We are going to release a revolutionary racquet, which should cause a stir. Without revealing too many details, it will be the 10th racquet in our Proline range and will represent an unprecedented innovation. We plan to launch it in 2024, but for Padel Magazine, we could advance the date to the last quarter of 2023. I can assure you that our teams are working hard to offer a racket that will revolutionize the market. So stay tuned!
