Jordi Ravirosa, the President of Black Crown, offered us an interesting interview with his point of view concerning the padel in Spain and abroad, not to mention the new racket from Black Crown: BOA PRO.
New gear that works very well
With the Piton 5 and Piton 5 soft, Black Crown has managed to offer a racket that sells very well. The Piton 5 Soft is as its name suggests easier than the Piton 5. The Soft takes the strengths of the normal but more accessible. Today, "it's a real success."
For next year, the all new Boa Pro will be offered at 130 euros. This is a racket mainly for the European market. " It is an interesting intermediate price for the rest of Europe with a low price at the top of rackets with prices in the vicinity of 200 € and even more, but. But the Boa Pro brings together the best technology ».
The difference with the Boa Classic?
« It's an easier racket than the classic Boa. If this is especially for intermediate / good players, the racket will certainly be happy as it is malleable.
Renewal: Marrero / Germani.
For Black Crown, the good news is also the renewal of the contract with Marta Marrero and Adian Allemandi. 2 tops players who left with Black Crown Padel.
«Our 2e market is the French market »
Although sales are mainly focused on Spain, some countries are continuing to grow. And France is particularly fond of Black Crown.
« I am very happy with the French market. There are more and more players and clubs. The padel market is very clearly to enter a very interesting phase of progression ».
But France is not the only one where the padel is growing, it is a worldwide phenomenon The padel has become a fashionable spot in many countries such as Belgium / Portugal / Holland.
