The difficulties of padel in Chile

As in many countries, the coronavirus is a real scourge for the padel, and the national team was greatly affected.

It was difficult for the Chileans to regroup and train together to properly prepare for these major international events. A truncated preparation and different from other years.

Fierce competitors, the Chileans are counting on their determination and their famous “grinta” to overcome this lack of training!
