In the padel, to approve a Padel tournament, the organizing club must send a "request for homologation" form to its league.

Deadlines to respect

- 8 minimum weeks before the start of the competition for the P1000

- 6 weeks for the tests P100, P250 and P500

(see page "The categories of tournaments")

The organizing club must apply for a single homologation for all the events of the tournament it organizes.

Several tests possible

A Club may organize a Tournament with one, two or three events:

-A Double Gentlemen's event

-A Double Ladies event

-A Double Mixed event (not approved)

Tournament tax (regardless of the number of events organized) will always be 24 €; fee that the club will pay to his league.

The League, after validation and attribution of a homologation number, transmits the homologation request to the FFT (dnarodetzki@fft.fr), for registration and publication of the Tournament on the site of Padel Magazine. (Attention: after submission of your form, any request for report must be validated by your league.If your league agrees, it will send the change of dates to the FFT for registration).

At the end of the tournament, and within a maximum of 7 days, the referee must inform the results file (Excel file) and send it to his league, as well as to the FFT (dnarodetzki@fft.fr).

The application form and the Statement of Results are available on the FFT website under PADEL:
