The padel is modernizing and it's time to think about the future. ASICS and Eurecat join forces to offer the best without increasing the negative impact on nature.

Recycling is one of the words we have heard the most in recent years. Each activity tries to recycle its materials to reduce the impact on nature.

The highly recognized brand ASICS, present on the padel market since 2008, has decided to join Eurecat, a technological center, to produce quality products but which can be easily recycled.

So this is good news for padel, a sport that generates growth. Initially, the actors necessarily think more about development than environmental impacts. This is changing.

Indeed, palas, which always incorporate more technologies and materials from chemistry, and which have a limited life, have a fairly harmful impact on the environment. This is why it is time to worry about the future.

ASICS and Eurecat will therefore offer palas made with high-end materials which can simply separate for better recycling. Recycling palas will make it possible to work in a short network. A close network that will generate less travel and therefore less CO2. We could even think of instructions like on glass bottles.

This may also be the future. You buy a racket and to get rid of it you take it to a store that will recycle it and offer you a discount on a new generation pala.
