The very first club with World Padel Tour (WPT) facilities in the world – Central Padel Dubai – is hosting its highly anticipated grand opening event on Saturday, February 5th at the brand new Al Quoz location.
The state-of-the-art club is opening its doors to the public where it will host international padel champions who will play in a one-of-a-kind exhibition match to officially open the facility.
At the grand opening event, padel fanatics and novices can marvel at a world class showcase of the sport, when Juan Lebron (currently ranked world’s #1) takes on rising star Agustin Tapia (world’s #6) in an exciting exhibition match on the central court.
World Padel Tour officials — coming directly from Spain — will also be awarding honorary plaques numbered 001 to 007 on each court to formally mark the occasion.
Since its soft launch in December, select players have been gracing the seven WPT courts and it has already become a hit with the sport’s insiders, early members and aficionados. It is now open for the wider community, where players of all levels can experience what it is like to play on a professional WPT court.
Othman Bouayad, Central Padel’s co-founder says; “Padel is currently the fastest-growing sport in the world and Dubai has become one of the global epicenters – the enthusiasm here is unseen anywhere else in the world. With Central Padel, we want to contribute to the Padel movement in the region by providing players with a world-class facility, a top-tier coaching team, and a variety of engaging social programs for all skill levels. With this opening, we are excited to take the sport to a new level in the UAE, and the Middle East.”
As the fastest growing sport in the region, Central Padel has finally provided an official home in the UAE for the World Padel Tour. With the foundations firmly and officially laid, Dubai can now take on the Padel world.
