Formula 1, swimming, sailing, horse riding… but also padel.
Monaco continues to establish itself as a world hub for high-level sports, now with a new string to its bow. Padel, a recent discipline that can be compared to badminton or tennis, is making a lasting impression in the Principality with the Hublot Monaco Master tournament.
Good news : the ninth ATP Padel Tour tournament of the season will be held in Monaco. The best padel players of the circuit will compete on the court of the Terrasses du Soleil in matches that promise to be exhilarating. The competition bears its name in reference to the luxury watch brand Hublot and is held in collaboration with the Société des Bains de Mer de Monte-Carlo.
If you are attentive to sports news, save the dates from September 13 to 19 to attend the Hublot Monaco Master. You can also follow the matches on the official ATP Padel Tour Youtube channel.
Padel takes its marks in Monaco
The Hublot Monaco Master is part of the movement to popularize high-level padel in the heart of the Principality. In 2015, businessman Fabrice Pastor had already organized a padel tournament under the Fontvieille marquee, in the presence of Prince Albert of Monaco. The following year was held the second edition of the Monte Carlo Padel Master, before the development in 2019 of a padel court in the middle of the street in the port district.
