Another high-level athlete victim of fever padel... Sergio Arribas, a 22-year-old footballer, formerly of Real Madrid, has a real addiction to padel. It’s simple, if he hadn’t been a professional footballer, he would play “all day at padel" as he was able to confide to the newspaper I reveal.

When he was younger, Sergio Arribas had to make a choice between football and tennis. In the end, his heart leaned towards football, but his love for racquet sports was never shaken: “I really like racket sports. And I'm not bad."

During his free time, the footballer always takes the opportunity to play padel – or tennis. A real need for this amateur. And when asked which player he looks like, he answers without hesitation : "I play on the left and I try to be a bit like Galán, who is also from Leganés“. Even if the level of the former Madrid player is still far from that of the Galantico, the fact remains that “improves little by little".

Luckily for him, Arribas does not play at FC Barcelona, otherwise he should have already put the racket away!

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.
