Although the project is still in its early stages, entrepreneurs have raised the idea of organizing a major international tournament of padel at Wimbledon.
Following the success at Roland Garros, it is tempting to imagine that the Wimbledon courts could open up to the world of padel and offer another great event of padel within one of the most emblematic sporting venues in tennis.
However, there is a catch. In England, the padel is certainly experiencing growth, with the opening of numerous clubs each month. However, the number of players remains much lower than that of France. Wouldn't the site still be too big for England?
The promoters of this event wish to remain discreet for the moment and continue to work on this possibility.
So, a tournament of padel at Wimbledon, do you think this is possible?
