IN an incredible display of athleticism, Marbella has joined five other Spanish cities in hosting a national padel tournament. 

The aptly named ‘Race to Marbella’ featured several padel matches last weekend, from Friday, June 9 until Sunday, June 11 at Club Nueva Alcántara.

The grand finale in the Club Series padel contest is also set to be held in Marbella, later this year, from Friday, November 17 until Sunday, November 19.

The city has joined Barcelona, Seville, Madrid, Valencia, and Bilbao in hosting the national padel competition. The event is a national tournament on the amateur national circuit where athletes can rack up points in competitions in each of the cities.

According to Manuel Cardeña, Marbella’s Councillor for Sports, “The padel championship is a bold investment in one of the fastest-growing sports both nationally and internationally”. He added “It features top quality venues, three competitive categories, incredible prizes, and guarantees an unforgettable sports-social experience”.
