From April 7 to 9, 2024, the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco will host the first edition of the Padel Best Expo, a prestigious exhibition dedicated to the world of padel imagined by the Italian company BSG, already at the initiative of the first Five Padel Cup (April 2023, between Eze and Monte-Carlo). For the occasion, several emblematic figures and legends of world sport, largely from the world of football (but not only), will be present!

La Padel Best Expo will also host the Cupra FIP Tour 2024, the world professional circuit of the International Federation of padel. Among the 120 tournaments organized throughout the year on the five continents, a stage is therefore scheduled inside the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco during the Padel Best Expo with a competition (it will be apart from the Five Padel Cup) dedicated to the players who participate in this prestigious championship. The deadline will be official and the points awarded through the respective performances will be counted for the Cupra FIP Tour 2024 world ranking.

The exhibition

La Padel Best Expo is the event not to be missed for lovers of padel. And for good reason: for three days, BSG invited the world's biggest brands/companies and suppliers to Monaco to exhibit their flagship products, relating to the practice of this booming sport. Roberta Ceccarelli, CEO of BSG : " The Padel Best Expo is based on three fundamental points: entertainment, presentation of the world of padel and innovation (new developments and material developments, etc.)”

The objective is to shine the spotlight on current trends, in an environment conducive to sporting and professional meetings. Material, equipment, match fields (courts)… the Grimaldi Forum will be designed to highlight these elements to the many observers expected on site. As a result, the exhibition will allow regular practitioners (or professionals, etc.) to come together and live a unique experience around their common passion: padel. The opportunity also for the most novice to discover the specificities of the discipline and its playing characteristics, in contact with the professionals of the sector present for the Padel Best Expo.

The second edition of the Five Padel Cup

It will take place inside the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. Several fields of padel ephemerals will be installed by the organization, allowing the Five Padel Cup to take place in the heart of the Padel Best Expo. Five tournaments will therefore be scheduled simultaneously on the courts mentioned and over the three days. Their aim will be to highlight the universality of this sport by inviting, at the same time and in an exceptional setting, personalities from different backgrounds. A way of demonstrating that the richness of padel is done in the diversity of the profiles of its practitioners.
