It’s a World premiere for the Belgians at the World Padel Championship which will take place for the first time in Brussels from May 4 to 8 : 8 Belgians are in the main draw of the international event.

There is now less than a month left before the start of the Circus Brussels Padel Open. No need to remind you how unique this event is going to be. The Tour & Taxis Maritime Station will be transformed for the duration of the tournament into two Padel courts including a central court that can accommodate up to 5000 people.

 

Five days of intensive padel to admire the 60 best players in the world of the men and women tour to fight for the title and the first place in the world ranking. The iconic duo Ale Galan & Juan Lebron (No. 1) were only a few steps ahead of Paquito Navarro & Martin Di Nenno. On the women’s draw Alejandra Salazar & Gemma Triay are in 1st place of the ranking.

What will make this tournament historic, besides the fact that it will be the first Belgian stage of a world padel championship, lies in the level of the Belgian cast which will be a first.

 

For the first time in the history of Belgian padel, there will be 4 Belgian wildcards teams in a main draw of an Open counting for the World Padel Tour Championship. It represents 4 matches for 4 duos and so 4 possibilities for 2 players of our country to reach the 1/16th final.  In the women’s category, An-Sophie Mestach and Astrid Dierckx will play in the day session on Wednesday, May 4, while Helena Wyckaert (WPT #85) and Monica Gomez (WPT #83) will play in the evening.
