Gianfranco Nirdaci, Chairman of the committee Padel of the Italian Tennis Federation (FederTennis) returned to the European Championships of Padel in Rome, but also and above all the possibility of seeing the padel join the Olympic family.

Le padel at the Olympic Games, it is possible even if there is still some way to go. We need to work with the main players in this sport, including Luigi Carraro, to move forward and see what can be done. The padel needs an architect to see this sport join the Olympic family. And Luigi is one of those architects.

For the padel at the Olympic Games, it takes time. But we are already working with FIP and its partners to see if the padel can pick up the pace. We could already be at the European Games and why not see the padel integrate other major sporting events.

Nothing is missing padel. Precisely, with these European championships of padel, padel shows all its strength. We are on the right track.
