How to access this tournament?
This is quite new because the year padel FIP did not go as planned. All the tournaments not having been able to take place, there is a lack of pairs automatically qualified for the final table. So the tournament is open to everyone.
The final table will include in priority the winners of FIP Star tournaments, and the players classified above the 17th place WPT.
And so that this CUPRA FIP Final is a celebration of padel, the organization has decided to include directly in the tables, representatives of the member countries of the FIP. Players who have taken part in at least 3 FIP tournaments during the year, regardless of the category, can apply to their federation, which will validate their place.
All other players will have to go through the previas and previas.
A hyper international tournament
If all the federations validate a pair of each gender, we will end up with players from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Uruguay, Belgium, Denmark, Egypt, Hungary, Japan, Lithuania, Monaco, Paraguay, Poland and United States !
And the Covid standards?
Of course, access will be controlled. In order to protect all participants and accompanying persons, and to respect the rules of the host country, all persons entering Italian territory must carry a PCR test dating back less than 72 hours, with certificate in hand.
This last FIP meeting of the year announces great things and above all promises a spectacle. Appointment from December 14 to 20.
