For the third year in a row, Monte-Carlo International Sport organizes the "Fabrice Pastor Cup", the South American padel circuit in three countries: Chile, Argentina and Brazil.
The circuit beyond continuing to support the development of padel internationally, the Fabrice Paster Cup will allow some players to participate as last year in the Master of the World Padel Tour: The Monte Carlo Padel Master.
The Monaco player and entrepreneur Fabrice Pastor is organizing three tournaments in South America, where will be present the best players of the world for the "Final round", the famous final stages of the circuit.
An abandoned lady circuit
The three tournaments will be held this year only in the men's category. The ladies' trials will not take place. Note that the Fabrice Pastor Cup had made efforts in previous years, unfortunately the cost would be too important compared to "the return of the public." Ladies' events may be highlighted, especially at the Monte Carlo Padel Master, the padel may be a mixed sport, the women's competition is difficult to take is an evil that exceeds the framework of the Fabrice Padel Cup.
The competition starts in Chile
The tour will begin in the Chilean capital, Santiago, from 20 to February 26 at Club Palestino.
The following week, from 1er to 5 March, will be held the second tournament on Argentine territory at the Racket Club Club, a historic sports complex in Buenos Aires. This event will also count for the Argentine circuit (AJPP) of the Padel Association of Argentina.
The last tournament will take place in the city of Porto Alegre (Brazil) on the 16 weekend at 19 march. He will also be part of the Brazilian local calendar, the Cobrapa (Brazilian Padel Confederation); the event will take place at the PadelPro club.
Prices: A WPT + Transport stage
As in previous years, the winning pairs will also receive prizes and prize money, the opportunity to participate in a stage of the professional circuit with the cost of transportation, accommodation and meals paid.
We remember that last year at the Monte Carlo Padel Master, the young Argentinean team Chingotto / Tello had almost created the huge surprise by playing against the world 2 numbers Paquito / Sanyo.
The objective of the Monegasque society is to encourage young pairs from other countries to join the professional padel circuit (The World Padel Tour). It also allowed Brazilian player Lucas Campagnolo (who will play this year with Martin Di Nenno), or Chilean Javier Valdés, to play this season on the professional circuit.
Exhibition with the best
As part of the tournament in Buenos Aires, a "Final Round" will take place. On Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 March, tops players of the pro circuit will participate in an exhibition tournament.
Subsequently, several players from the Monte-Carlo International Sports delegation will travel to Spain to compete in the XXXIII Spanish Team Championship with the newly-formed Monte Carlo-Entrena Padel team.
