The Flemish League, represented by Judith Merchie, Flanders Development Advisor and the Urban Padel team, was very much thanked by the padel teams for the organization that allowed the girls, for example, to play Sunday morning in this event. "Very friendly structure with 4 new tracks in the middle of the soccer fields ».
