World Padel Tour lands in Italy

World Padel Tour continues its international expansion and in 2020, it will land for the first time in one of the countries where padel has grown the most in recent years: Italy. After a long wait, Cagliari will host the first tournament on Italian soil in history, the Sardegna Open 2020.

From September 6 to 13, the best players on the planet will play the first title of the season outside of Spain. The island will host all the matches, from the pre-qualifying matches to the final of the Open and the entire tournament will be played in two locations at the height of this historic moment.

The Tennis Club Cagliari will have five courts, on which most of the matches will be played, including the final rounds. In addition, in the heart of Cagliari, in Piazza Bastioni di Saint Remy, another track will be installed so that the city can enjoy the best rackets in the world in a magical setting.

"We believe in sport as an instrument for the promotion of our region, including the tourism it brings, as a means of spreading the most authentic human values. The Sardegna Open, in the extraordinary international context of the World Padel Tour, represents an event of great worldwide importance through which we want to send a message of accessibility and safety to those who visit our island. Sardinia naturally lends itself as a unique and unparalleled setting for hosting major sporting events and the decision to support this unique event on the national scene confirms this" , stressed the President of the Region of Sardinia, Christian Solinas.

Luigi Carraro, President of the International Padel Federation added: "In Italy, Padel is growing very quickly, more than any other country. The awarding of this stage of the World Padel Tour to Cagliari is just reward for all those who have contributed to this veritable boom". Mario Hernando, General Manager of the World Padel Tour, underlined: "The arrival of the World Padel Tour in Italy is a long awaited event. Both for the Italian sporting tradition and for the exponential growth of their Padel fans; they deserve an opportunity like this".

A historic event in an unprecedented country that already has a date and place. From September 6 to 13, World Padel Tour arrives in Cagliari.
