The Inclusive Padel Tour has released its 2023 tournament calendar with ten events including eight in Italy and two stages outside the borders, in Malaga (Spain) and Dubai (United Arab Emirates). During these tournaments, the participating teams will be made up of an able-bodied player and a player with a disability.

20 players with disabilities will be hired for this second year of the circuit. They will compete for the first place won by Alessandro Ossola last year according to the following ranking system: 5 points for participation in an event, 1 point per game won, 30 points for the winner and 15 for the runner-up.

The evolution of the IPT stems from a desire emanating from the Italian federation to make padel a totally inclusive sport by adding a rebound for wheelchair players or people playing with a prosthesis.

The first tournament will take place on March 11 on the occasion of the Padel Italy X-Perience of Rome.
