Le Greenweez Paris Premier Padel Major (G3PM) is back in 2023 after the success of the first edition in July 2022. Tournament director Arnaud Di Pasquale gives more information to Canal + on the set of Padel Club (video below) about the event, which will take place from September 3 to 10 in the Roland-Garros stadium.
The will of the former French tennis player is to make this competition a “unmissable event for fans of padel” to show the FFT that “le padel to an extraordinary future“. He relies in particular on the response that the public already gave last year with a “huge satisfaction rate".
The idea for “Dip” is to develop, alongside the spectacular aspect of the matches themselves, “a festive, recreational atmosphere, an afterwork side where you can spend a day at Roland-Garros and test the padel” with entertainment like the Mölkky.
Unlike the first edition “organized in a hurry in three months”, Arnaud Di Pasquale is confident this year in an event that is very popular with players, but where there are no players yet: “I want there to be women, I made the request. It's progressing, it's still under discussion and I'll have an answer very soon".
The G3PM box office will open on April 25.
