The professional footballer of FC Bruges, Tom De Sutter, wants to open a new padel club at the Bruges location in summer 2015. The star striker is sure that the new racket sport will continue to develop positively in the region and that he can lay another important foundation stone for this with his investment.
He himself was quickly infected with the padel virus. More than a year ago, he played for the first time with his team mate Victor Vazquez and their coach at the time Juan Carlos Garrido - also an enthusiastic padel player - at the padel facility in Gentbrügge, Belgium.
The work on the new padel club with 7 padel courts including 1 single padel court should be completed as early as July 2015. The aim will be to welcome as many sports enthusiasts as possible there - and to be able to hold the first inter-club championships between the padel facilities in Belgium and Holland.
