More than five years later, the padel is back to Dakhla (Morocco), for the second edition of the Intercontinental Cup padel. “The pearl of the Sahara” had been deprived of this discipline for many years, in particular because of Covid.

However, the wait has lasted long enough and the padel makes its big return to Dakhla, with a track set up especially for the event, right in the middle of a public square in the city. For three days, players Spanish, Portuguese, Moroccan et French will compete to try to lift the cup!

For several years, the city of Dakhla has been trying to create a club of padel within it. Unfortunately, for the time being and despite demand, the wish of many has not yet been realized. This exhibition competition will therefore also aim to promote the padel, in a country it already has its place, but in a region where it is sorely lacking.

The two categories will be represented during this Intercontinental Cup, with a men's draw and a men's draw.

Gwenaelle Souyri

It was his brother who one day told him to accompany him on a track. padel, since then, Gwenaëlle has never left the court. Except when it comes to going to watch the broadcast of Padel Magazine, World Padel Tour… or Premier Padel…or the French Championships. In short, she is a fan of this sport.
