Recently sued by the World Padel Tour, the new circuit of the FIP and QSI has decided not to let it go and strongly condemns the actions of the World Padel Tour.

"The overall conduct of the WPT speaks for itself"

Through an open letter, a circuit spokesperson Premier Padel does not hesitate to openly criticize the conduct of the World Padel Tour : “It would not be appropriate to comment in detail on the ongoing legal proceedings, however WPT's general conduct over the past few months obviously speaks for itself ".

The chosen words are strong, and Premier Padel recalls'threats and aggressive public statements against players' from the World Padel Tour and ” unprecedented claims for damages of 25 million euros."

The spokesperson also added: “ The WPT has now filed a lawsuit against a federation that governs the padel for 31 years. He seems to justify all these actions with arguments of maintaining the monopoly, which support a completely closed competition which goes against the open European sports model supported by the European Commission and the European Parliament.

These actions are the antithesis of responsible sports administration and any notion of supporting the overall development of a sport, the freedom and well-being of players.

It is also curious that an entity that closed the entire market to competition for years now invokes unfair competition. "

" We will not comment on the WPT's latest desperate actions. "

” It is also important to specify that the International Federation of Padel has read a letter from Margrethe Vestager, Executive Vice-President of the European Commission, which stresses in absolute terms that European sport must be based on open competition and not on closed leagues. “

A letter confirming the position of Premier Padel who will not let himself be taken in by this direct confrontation which opposes him to World Padel Tour, and which is probably only just beginning…
