EuroPadel on July 20, 2016

Dear members and supporters, Beste Gentenaars , Queridos Europadelistas

This year 2016 we have organized our 4th Europadel tournament in Gent, and like the previous ones, it has been a complete success.

Each year we are getting better and better and we wish to going on and on ………….

This year we were 25 teams, 8 from EuroPadel and 17 from Padel 4U2. Once again, Padel 4U2 teams dominated the trophy and Jana and Nick got the first place after winning a brilliant final match against Celine and Marnick. Congratulations to Jana and Nick which obtained for the first time the first place in our tournament.

The third place went to María Treviño and Curro from EuroPadel which won against Sonsoles and Emilio in the “petite” final in a very hard and tight match. María received the annual special prize of Europadel to recognize all the work she has made to promote padel in Belgium. Congratulations María and thanks a lot for all your work.

Two another circumstances must be underlined, the first was the challenge match between Padel 4U2 and EuroPadel which took placed Saturday evening after the victory of Belgium against  Ireland in the European Football Cup  3-0.  This year again Padel 4U2 won or even destroyed EuroPadel team (Curro and Emilio) :-(. But there were serious doubts about the performance of a player of Padel 4U2, Jan Bonnarens which played too well (even better than Nick) !!!!! Next year there will be anti-doping test, at least for the challenge match.

The wheather this year was not so good, at least, Saturday but Sunday was fantastic, and given the quality of the padel courts of Padel 4U2 we could complete all the matches without any problem; specially thanks to the players which demonstrated a commendable sportive spirit, fair play and friendship approach.

The second point to be highlighted was that Saturday morning during the rain two sun’s rays unexpectedly  appeared in the club in the form of volley players. As a consequence, next year another challenge has to be organized, a volley match between Padel 4U2 and EuroPadel, I will be together with Alfonso the trainer for EuroPadel and We have already two players in our team !!!  Good luck Padel 4U2 !




The tombola was a big success as usual, we would like to thank once again all our sponsors Air Europa, La Casa Escrivá, Vin de mois, Bullpadel, Alfonso Escubos, BBVA,  Bois Savanes, Casa Asturias, Terras Gaudas, Finca Can Ramón, Ghent River Hotel and Spyke for their generosity and commitment with Padel !

Here you can find the link to the album with the pictures of the trophy (Thanks a lot Sandy !!!)

Guys, take care and LONG LIFE TO PADEL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EuroPadel on May 6, 2016

Dear members and supporters:

Last week-end another Europadel’s trophy took place. The XII Europadel Trophy !!!!!. This time was in the high-class sports facilities of CIE in Overijse. 12 mixed teams were playing and enjoying during two days in a wonderful atmosphere.


3 groups of 4 teams developed a very high level of padel and new teams got the trophies.






The new champions were Sonsoles and Michel which won in the final to Méline and Felix Jr.


Meline and Felix Jr. were the main surprise of the tournament, two guys under 16 year old were destroying all the teams till the final. Wonderful performance and we will see them winning very soon. Bravo Méline and Felix.

The winners Sonsoles and Michel did not have major difficulties during the tournament, they shown a big superiority and they won all the matches without much difficulties, losing only  1 set, in the phase of groups, against the young guys. Congratulations to both and enjoy your deserve victory !

There was an extended rumor than Sonsoles would leave her previous partner  Emilio to going on with Michel in next tournaments ………

Emilio who was injured and could not participate in this tournament was asked about this new affair and he only answered NO COMMENT.

The third position were to Isabel and Curro and the fourth to Iciar and Rafa.


Isabel and Curro (in the picture during the semifinal) started Saturday playing very well and became one of the favorites but Sunday in the semifinal they did not perform well against Sonsoles and Michel and lost. However they defeated Iciar and Rafael and got the third position of the tournament.

Iciar and Rafael were the main bad suprise, we are sorry for that. The organisation made imposible things to give Rafael the chance to win something but, again, it was not possible. Rafael was playing with the best female player, our very well known Iciar, superb trainer of Europadel and they started as the main favorites to win the tournament.  But in the semifinal  they lost against Méline and Feliw in three hard sets.


In the Semifinal (see picture) Rafa  after winning the first set,  needed extra help as he suffered dehydration during the match. People gave him chocolate, sandwiches, sugar ….. trying to recover him but they did not succeed and they lost. Some people did not believe it and they said that it was not dehydration but stress to see his wife, La LEONA DE SAN MAMES looking at him in a provocative way. Do not forget that LA LEONA won some trophies in the past and RAFA did not !!!!!! and she wanted to remain the only one at home with trophyes. Poor Rafa !!!!!!

By the way, Iciar promised to come back soon to give new padel lessons.

We would like to higlight that Lara and Mark won the consolation category  winning in the final against Sandy and Fernando

The ceremony of the trophy was a big succeed and  a lot of presents were distributed to the participants


We would like to give lots of thanks to all our sponsors to support the tournament, i.e.  Air Europa, Alfonso Escubos, Bullpadel, Bar Asturias, Telefonica, Vin de Mois and  Tourespaña.
During the trophy Radio Alma interviewed our vice-president Alfonso. Click in the following link
