You have the opportunity to contribute in 30 seconds to highlighting this figure.
more than 22.000 licensees 100% padel
One thing is certain, today we have at least more than 22.000 licensees 100% padel. The elected official in charge of padel, Eric Largeron, announced it to us at the end of 2022.
But as explained by the Director of the Mission Padel, Arnaud Di Pasquale, “the ideal would be to have a precise figure on the number of players padel among the multi-racquet licensees. For example, I have a multi-racket license. But I only play today padel. "
This example is far from isolated. On the contrary, there would be many more players of padel with the multi-racket license only 100% licensees padel.
The reason is simple: a significant number of players of padel comes from sports clubs that have tennis and padel in their infrastructure. Conclusion: by default, players have a multi-racket license even if some only practice padel.
This is why we invite all players of padel, even if you play tennis and/or beach tennis, to declare your sporting activities.
