Five reasons to not miss the Estrella Damm Catalunya Master 2018

The countdown to the start of the 2018 season is nearing its end. The much awaited start of the World Padel Tour season is just around the corner. The new season will begin in Badalona (Barcelona) and it will do so with a Master. A tournament that brings together the best players in the world and which promises a lot of excitement. The Estrella Damm Catalunya Master is an unmissable event for padel fans but, in case you're doubting, here are five reasons to not miss the first tournament of the season.

 1) Number ones on court

The Estrella Damm Catalunya Master will be the first chance for fans to see the two pairings that top the rankings. In the men's event, Fernando Belasteguín and Pablo Lima head into their fourth season together with the aim of staying at the top of the game. Majo and Mapi Sánchez Alayeto face the same challenge. In 2017, they won 9 titles and this season they will try and have another remarkable season.

2) Returns

With the return of the season, plenty of players will finally be back on court after having missed great parts of 2017 through injury. Some of them are absolute stars of the game and will reappear at the Estrella Damm Catalunya MasterNames such as Juan Martín Díaz, who will team up with Paquito NavarroOr in the women's tour, one of the best players on the planet, Alejandra Salazaris back alongside Marta Marrero and eager to get back to the top of the rankings. These are just a few examples of the many players that will be back in Badalona.

3) New pairings

There have been plenty of changes, especially on the men's tour, with new sporting projects testing themselves in an increasingly competitive tour. Some of the standout new pairings are Juan Martín Díaz - Paquito NavarroSanyo Gutiérrez - Maxi Sánchez (who are together again) Matías Díaz and Alejandro Galán or Ramiro Moyano - Luciano Capra.

4) Surprises

As tends to be the case at the start of the season, the fans are eager to see some upsets. The breakthrough of an unexpected pairing, a glimpse of promise from a young duo or the consolidation of an emerging talent. Who will be the pairing making a name for themselves? The answer will come at the Olimpic de Badalona from the 20th to the 25th of March.

5) A record breaking tournament

Apart from the incentives on court. There's another factor to take into considetarion and it's the fact that the Estrella Damm Catalunya Master could become the tournament with the largest attendance at a padel tournament ever. If there is a full house on centre court there would be 6000 spectators, breaking the record of 5900 at the recent Estrella Damm Master Final.

From the World Padel Tour we invite you to form a part of history. We look forward to seeing you at the Estrella Damm Catalunya Master.
