The new structure padel will have the particular mission to give the desire to the neophytes to launch out in the deep end to become impassioned, to create a pool of players and to be able to seek talents to advance.
Caring for greater visibility which should make it possible to bring in investors, business partners and broadcasters, a bit like the FIP tournaments that Dubai has been organizing for a while now.
