Le Padel Classic, which will take place on May 15 and 16, continues to add XXL names to its list of participants. After the confirmation of Andrew Strauss, former captain of the England national cricket team and the 2007 world rugby champion, Bryan Habana, it is the turn of Andriy Shevchenko and Michael Vaughan to join the ranks of the tournament.

The two former top athletes have just announced their participation in this tournament in west London, at the Hurlingham Club. The 2004 Ballon d'Or and one of the greatest sporting figures in cricket, both fans of this sport, are joining this competition whose aim is to raise funds for Laureus Sport For Good.

Will these stars also help boost the visibility of the padel in England, allowing it to position itself as true emerging country in this sport?

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.
