EuroPadel on January 15, 2017

Queridos amigos,

El pasado 8 de Diciembre Europadel celebró su tradicional cena de Navidad. En este ocasión se organizó en los locales de nuestro sponsor Bar Asturias – Rue de l’Argonne 14. Los asistentes degustaron un sinfín de magnificas tapas y buen vino.

El ambiente fue sencillamente espectacular,  la velada fue amenizada por nuestros queridos Carlos (a la guitarra) y Manolo (al cajón) que fueron desgranando canciones de todo tipo y condición ante el jolgorio de los asistentes que no pararon de cantar y bailar hasta la madrugada.


Emilio, también conocido como “Gigi el Amoroso”, hizo gala de sus dotes caballerescas y regaló una rosa a cada chica presente en la cena. Figura emblemática de EuroPadel, hay variadas opiniones de su técnica en el juego, pero fuera de la pista es simplemente genial.


Durante el baile hizo aparición la bailaora Luisa Castellanos y nos deleitó con un flamenquito del bueno.

Muchas gracias a los asistentes y al Bar Asturias y que siga la fiesta y el padel por supuesto

“Amigos para siempre
Means you´ll always be my friend
Amis per sempre
Means a love that will never end
Friends for life
Not just a summer or a spring
Amigos para siempre”

Abrazos a todos

EuroPadel on January 15, 2017

Dear all,

During the last 18-20 November  Europadel celebrated its XIV trophy, but this time it was the first official tournament for the Belgium Ranking. The Tournament took placed in the premises of the CIE in Overijse and it was a big success. The responsible of the tournament Juanjo Alcalde did a very good job and everybody enjoyed the three days of full padel in the wonderful covered courts of CIE.

The tournament had three categories MEN A, MEN B and WOMEN.

In MEN A, the level of the players was really outstanding and the winners were Iker and Sergio which defeated Tanguy and Geoffrey  6-3 ;6-3 in a very nice and good match.


In MEN B Christophe and Bernard won against Alex and Jose Luis in a very tough match solved in a fin al tie break.  The score was 3-6; 6-4 ;7-6


In Women Isabel and Cristina won the tournament against Maria and Sonsoles  6-3; 4-6; 6-3

Female final

Sunday there was a ceremony to give the trophies and a cocktail offered by Europadel to all participants.


We would like to thank Juanjo for the very good organization and congratulate to the deserved winners.

We raffled two flight tickets offered by our sponsor Air Europa and the winners were Lara and Marc

Thanks to all the participants, sponsors and, of course, CIE and Paola for the wonderful padel facilities.

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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
