Three players from Los Angeles will be part of the USA Women’s Padel Team.

For the first time in the history of Padel in USA 3 girls (Colleen, Gina and Shannon) from  Los Angeles, California will be part of the USA PADEL WOMEN’S TEAM in the next World Championship in Mallorca, Spain.

The Spanish Padel Federation will organise the World  Padel Championship for National Teams and National Couples 2014, from October  20th to the 26th in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

The Tournament will take place at three different locations : Palacio Municipal de Son Moix, Club Pins Padel  and Palma Pádel.

The Championship will  have both female and male teams and couples. Every country shall designate their own teams .

There are two modes of play in women’s and men’s teams and doubles. In the team matches, each country chooses a team that will compete to the best of three points. It starts with a league format and then moves to a knockout table. The team competition is such that, by the end, all the teams are ranked.

In the doubles category, each country is represented by up to four teams of two players competing in a knockout table; two teams from the same nation may compete against each other.

While  waiting for the International Federation to inform whether 14 men’s and 14 women’s teams or 16 men’s and 12 women’s teams will take part, we do know that there will be about 266 members from official federations: 224 players 28 technicians and 14 managers. This is wealth created by padel”.

Good luck to the WOMEN’S PADEL USA TEAM!

New collection from the leading Racket sport brand, Dunlop. Take a look at this  selection of padel rackets all at great prices available at The Padelshop.

20140616_141300

The Dunlop DP 340 is manufactured in weights between 330 and 350 grams, which makes it  very light, perfect for the characteristics of the racquet itself, and her little sister, Dunlop DP 320 is manufactured in weights between 310 and 330 gr.

The grip is longer for those who come from tennis and are used to playing with both hands. The extra length makes the racket tend to have more power.

The CHANNEL POWER applied on the outside of the racquet provides greater rigidity, which is what these racquets featherweight need. A lot of technology  increasing the power of it and most durability.

Padel or Paddle?

Great article from WikiPadel , platform that helps all players of Padel to find a fun, fast and easy way with an interactive map, which shows which professionals from Padel are near your home, in your city or in your country and help Padel professionals come forward and get many more students or clients to their services without intermediaries and for free.Gabriel Gonzalez talks about the differences between what we called Padel (European Padel)  and Paddle Tennis ( American Padel).

Finally it seems that with the passing of the years are the players, clubs and padel federations around the world have come to “formalize” internationally the word “PADEL” to call this “new sport” growing at lightning speed.

In the 90s yet the word “Padel” and “Paddle” lived together for the same sport, but when it began to internationalize the padel, the English speaking preferred to adopt the original word “PADEL” because in their language the word “paddle” little sense because it created immense confusion with a popular rowing and more confusion even with the “paddle tennis” which has different rules than the original padel.

Today existing padel federations in the United States, United Kingdom, Belgium, Netherlands, France, Australia, Germany, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Spain, Mexico, Paraguay, Dominican Republic, Sweden, Switzerland, Uruguay and other … The list is growing month to month and all federations agree to adopt the word “PADEL” as the “official” word and their respective clubs in these countries, which in 95% of cases have also adopted the same word spontaneously “PADEL” as the official word internationally to call this sport.

In the 80s and 90s was not clear what word to use, the original word “Padel” or “Paddle”, but apparently there is already a tacit agreement internationally where federations, clubs and players around the world have officially chosen the word “Padel” and today we can see cases where oldest clubs that were called “paddle club” or similar names, have been forced by the confusion created by the same players to change the name and update, call the club for the word almost “official” in all the contries, call it by the name that today all know: “PADEL”.

It is today, in the 2013 when almost no one questions it because everywhere we see is the word PADEL and it seems normal and logical, as we see in the Spanish-speaking padel federations and in the english-speaking padel federations, we also see the word “padel” in the major professional padel circuits, such as the World Padel Tour, the Padel Pro Tour and other major tournaments, whether professional or amateur level, today, everybody use the word “Padel”, so we find it very strange and outdated now see a padel club with “Paddle word” but still exist, very few but there are still some who resist to global trend.

In conclusion, it seems the world has made a decision, taken spontaneously by players, federations and clubs around the world, will be the word “PADEL” the “official” word.
