The coronavirus has done and is still doing a lot of damage, but on many points it has helped to advance certain inconsistencies in our society, such as the fact that sport is not qualified as essential.

Sport will therefore now be considered ashe essential activity in Spain. When at the start of the pandemic all non-essential activities had to close their doors, the qualification of “essential” was considered very subjective.

A measure that brought together the main party in power (the PSOE) and the leader of the opposition (the PP) It is really not every day that this happens and this act confirms the unifying virtues of sport !

The texts are based on the benefits of sport to maintain the physical and mental health, especially in a pandemic and containment situation.

The next measure to be considered by Ciudadanos (centrist party): the reduction of VAT from 21% to 10% for all services expressly related to physical activity! Very good news for all clubs, from padel in particular, who have been hit hard by the crisis.
