At the heart of Qatar's vibrant cultural scene, the Qatar National Museum stands like a beacon, attracting visitors from around the world with its iconic architecture, historic and more recent treasures: “the padel".

During this first Major of the year, a somewhat unusual sporting activity took place in this exceptional cultural setting.

Le Padel found its place within the walls (well almost!) of the National Museum of Qatar. Although it lacks certain essential elements to make it a real court of Padel, the event offered some cool shots with stars of the yellow ball.

Certainly, the configuration was not that of a playing field. Padel conventional, but rather an ingenious adaptation to fit the unique environment of the Qatar National Museum.

The National Museum of Qatar, designed by renowned architect Jean Nouvel, is much more than just a museum. It is the custodian of Qatari history and identity, providing a captivating insight into the cultural richness of the region. Through its innovative exhibitions and educational programs, the museum celebrates the past while inspiring the future.

Whether you are passionate about art, history or sport, a visit to the National Museum of Qatar is a must.
