The American Padel Tour is preparing its first edition for 2020. The dates have already been communicated and we will start next January in the cradle of the padel: Mexico.
The APT will have an organization worthy of a professional padel circuit. Will we have semi-professional or even professional players in this circuit? The future will tell.
Mexico is the country where the padel was born. It will host the first master of the 13 season at 19 January and will be played in the city of Mérida with an endowment of 20.000 dollars.
That's what the leaders of American International Sport & mci, the organizer of this circuit, announced this week, which will have at least 14 tournaments and a final master.
A circuit that has been endorsed by the Continental American Padel Federation (CAPF).
The new circuit will feature this first-year 7 country: Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Chile, the Dominican Republic and the United States.
As announced by the president of the CAPF, Fabrice Pastor, the stages will spread from January to December 2020 and will propose more 14 tournaments in categories open and master, plus a final master.
Remember that the American Padel Tour has the ambition to become the reference circuit in America. With the resources put in place, this is already partly won. Will players answer the call? Answer end 2020.
