LG Air Solutions Steps Up as Gold Sponsor for the Groundbreaking Saudi Padel Tournament

Riyadh, 2 June, 2024 – The electrifying sport of padel takes a monumental leap in Saudi Arabia with LG Air Solutionssponsoring the Kingdom’s very first Saudi Padel Tournament. Under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki, Minister of Sports, this pioneering event marks a new chapter for competitive sports and innovation in the region.

What is Padel?

Padel is a fast-paced racket sport that marries the intricacies of tennis and squash, emphasizing agility and tactical play. Enclosed in glass walls, the court is smaller than tennis, making the game accessible, social, and highly engaging for players and spectators alike.

An Ambitious Vision Translated into Reality

The Saudi Committee for Padel, established in August 2021, embarked on its mission by organizing local tournaments, forming teams, and promoting the sport nationwide. By joining the International Padel Federation in April 2022, it aimed to host and participate in international tournaments.

The Committee’s vision is to make padel one of Saudi Arabia’s top five sports. Goals include registering 5,000 local players, preparing 5 referees for international roles by the 2034 Asian Games, and developing 3 athletes ranked in the top 100 globally by 2030. The ambitious plan also involves creating 1,000 courts across 13 regions and 26 cities by 2030, firmly integrating padel into the Saudi sports community and boosting the nation’s GDP.

The Event at a Glance

  • The world’s first padel league, featuring an innovative system under the guidance of the Saudi Padel Committee.
  • Participation from 45 government and private clubs, reflecting the sport’s burgeoning popularity.
  • A significant stride in making padel one of the most practiced sports in Saudi Arabia.

As the tournament unfolds, LG Air Solutions is excited to witness the sport of padel flourish and become an integral part of the Kingdom’s sports culture. The Saudi Padel Tournament is more than just a competition; it is a catalyst for community engagement, offering a new avenue for sportsmanship and a testament to the Kingdom’s bright future in global sports.
