Le Real Club de Polo Barcelona, who played at home, won the 37th Spanish Team Championships of the first category for both men and women.
Favorites, the RC Polo teams, did not disappoint in front of their audience! Mainly involving former teammates on the World Padel Tour, the Barcelona club have done the job and offer themselves a deserved double.
The girls keep their title
Again this year against the Tenis Club Chamartin, the Polo girls have retained their title won last season. A 4/1 victory with clear wins. Associated again, Gemma Triay and Lucia Sainz remembered the good memories of 2020, imposing 6 / 4 6 / 2 against Marta Talavan and Veronica Virseda.
Separated to give themselves more chances of victory, the Alayeto twins could not do anything against the armada of RC Polo. Mapi and Angela Caro Cantin bowed to Alejandra Salazar and Nuria Rovira (6/3 6/3). Majo and Sandra Hernandez were dominated by former teammates on the WPT Patty Llaguno and Eli Amatriain : 7 / 5 6 / 2.
Marta Ortega and Ariana Sanchez, who were also partners on the World Padel Tour, have proven that they still get along just as well. Pitted against another former WPT pair, Josemaria / Nogueira, Ari and Marta topped the proceedings with a victory 6 / 3 7 / 5.
In the last meeting, Cristina Gomis and Nicole Traviesa quit after winning by the Polo: 7/5 6/7 1/2 abandonment, facing Isa Dominguez and Cata Tenorio.
A clear victory for this great team which will try to make the treble in 2022 ! For TC Chamartin, it was a second straight final defeat against Polo…
The gentlemen finally hold their victory!
It is done ! RC Polo Barcelona wins this title that has eluded it since 2014 ! Rivapadel-Covibar II will have fought well but it is ultimately the home club that is champion!
As with the girls, several pairs who recently separated were able to make one last little match together. This is particularly the case of Fernando Belasteguin and Agustin Tapia, who dominated Ramiro Moyano and Pablo Garcia 7 / 6 7 / 6.
The all new pair Franco Stupaczuk / Alex Ruiz showed that she was already well established with a victory 7 / 5 6 / 2 facing Juan Tello and Javier Barahona. Javi Ruiz and José Rico did not do in detail against Fernandez Cano / Restivo: 6 / 3 6 / 1.
Finally, in the two big shocks of the day, the pairs of Rivapadel-Covibar II gave up at 3/0 for RC Polo. Agustin Silingo / Martin Di Nenno had won the first set against Maxi Sanchez / Pablo Lima, while Paquito Navarro / Gonzalo Rubio were recovering against Coki Nieto / Javi Rico…
The Polo therefore achieves the double in 2021, and if the Barcelona club field the same players in 2022, it will still be the favorite of the competition!
