Sport is an important social vector in our modern societies. Today, our society demands that men and women be equal in terms of salaries, distribution of household chores and also, in terms of tournament winnings. Major tennis tournaments such as those at Grand Chelem offer the winners the same prizes.

Le Padel does not escape the fact of respecting this important social issue of equality between men and women. Tournaments Padel must now offer the same cachet whether it is a men's or a women's tournament, and the organizers are doing it more and more, which is interesting.

However, some major tournaments do not respect this equality, or even widen it with a significant difference in earnings between the winner of the event and the winner.

This is a tournament with important sponsors (Adidas, Coca-Cola etc…) and the difference in earnings goes from simple to double! Indeed, 300 € for the male winner against 120 € for the female winner.

In the future, in all tournaments whether at Padel or in any other sport the winners will have the same gains but some organizers do not yet make the effort. The social movement is increasingly strong in favor of this equality and sport is no exception in this societal evolution.
