FIP is looking for clubs in France for its international events. Basically, how does it work?
The different types of FIP tournaments
4 main grades have been set up:
These grades therefore include 7 types of tournaments:
- World Open Championships (Mundial Open)
- 1000 Plus FIP Tournaments
- FIP Tournaments 1000
- 500 FIP Tournaments
- 250 FIP Tournaments
- 125 FIP Tournaments
- FIP 100 or FIP Challenger Tournaments
These competitions depend on the level of the competition, but also and especially on the endowment proposed by the organizer. FIP is, in a way, following the example of the most famous padel franchise: The World Padel Tour.
How are the FIP points distributed?
