End clap of these World Seniors Plus 2024 who gave us a very beautiful show throughout the week… and where the French shone. The French delegation was eagerly awaited at these Worlds, with lots of ambitions among the ladies and gentlemen!

Of course, we also had high expectations from the best nations in the world, Spain and Argentina. At men's, it was the highly anticipated and very exciting final. Among the ladies, on the other hand, Spain and Argentina having met in group matches, we did not find the two nations in the final!

It's time to give a quick recap of the results of these world championships!

Team meetings

Among the men, Spain and Argentina met for an explosive finale. The Spanish team was aiming for the hat-trick in these Worlds, after winning the first two editions in Malaga (2018) et Las Vegas (2022)

However, there will be no treble for the Spanish team, outclassed by a very good Albiceleste team. Hernan Auguste et Gaby Reca, who brought the first point to Argentina, had already played together from 2007 to 2011, and in 2002 they won the World Championships: they did it again, more than 20 years later.

For third place, it is the French team which leaves with the bronze medal after winning their match against Sweden !

The results of the team meetings:

In gentlemen:

  • 1st place: Argentina team.
  • 2nd place: Spain team.
  • 3nd place: French team.

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.
