Jordi Ravirosa, president of Black Crown, the famous Catalan brand is back on the new models that will arrive on the market in May.
Black Crown more and more present ...
"Although we may have the impression that Black Crown has existed for a long time, the brand only exists since March 2010. Since then, we have made the road. Part of Catalonia, the brand has become today a true brand in itself. We sell all over Spain. We also feel since last year, a strong padel development on a global scale that boosts our development. France is our second market behind Spain.
But other countries grow like Portugal, Belgium, Italy, Latin America and Dubai."
The Black Crown team is growing ...
"The brand obviously offers quality products and we therefore have players who use our rackets. World Padel Tour players also use our racket as the world number one Marrero or Germani, one of the best players in the world men.
Amateur padel side, we are developing a lot with a particular range soon since we made a unique work on the handling part of rackets. But shhh ... Surprise ...
This year we will therefore propose new ranges that will benefit from the latest technological developments. 6 new models. Which will complete the old models.
We start to have several ranges of padel, with all types of game. Today we will have at total 12 models.
The Puma will be the racket of Germani and Marrero. A new racket with the same look for these players ... "
The Black Crown team is impressive.
"In France, we have a very good team because the best French players play with Black Crown like Justin Lopes, Mahtieu Lapouge, Fabien Veber, Jeremy Ritz, Jerome Ferrandez, Morgan Mannarino and Virginie Pironneau. In Belgium, top players also play with Black Crown as Jeremy Gala and Barbara Laurent"
