Statement by Luigi Carraro and Hubert Picquier after the Padel European Championships

FIP President Luigi Carraro and the elected official in charge of padel development at FFT Hubert Picquier gave us a few words after the final of the Padel European Championships.

Beyond a successful event, we will retain the presence of the European Olympic Committees. A step forward towards the Olympics.

Luigi Carraro: "It's a fantastic competition. Today 1800 people gathered here in Rome to watch the final. It's a sports festival, a padel party. We received visits from the European Olympic Committees who watched all the matches during the 4 days.

President Giovanni Malagò was with us, he confirmed his support. He confirmed that FIP ​​is doing things right. And here we are with Hubert Picquier whom I wished to have with me. He is not only the head of the Padel in France, he is European champion and he is also the vice-president of the FIP. And if this event went well, it is thanks to a work of the board of FIP.

It's been months since we worked on this event but also on the World Junior Championships that ended. We are happy. I thank the media and the public. It is only one of the first events of a long history that we write together. "

PM: "Hubert, I thought I heard revenge in France in two years? "

Hubert Picquier: "Yes I hope there will be a revenge. I hope it can be done in France but for now we do not have the facilities to accommodate. One thing is certain, we can congratulate the Italian Federation for the splendid organization. Congratulations Luigi. "

LC: "Congratulations to all of us. "
