Padel Federation France

Since 2014, padel has been organised by the French Tennis Federation. Previously, this was done by the padel association "Ligue National de Padel", which was founded in 2013.

The French tennis federation can rely on a broad network with many partnerships (e.g. the former tennis professional and current padel player and padel court builder Henri Leconte Padel or Gael Monfils) and his great history.

The long-term goal of the association is to be able to win over the younger generation for padel in order to establish the sport in the long term. As a member of the World Padel Federation F.I.P. the appropriate structures could be created for this in all relevant areas.

There are now around 1,000 padel courts in France and over 100,000 padel players.

That's not much compared to its neighbour Spain - but French padel sport is catching up with 7 mile boots. Accordingly, more and more French padel professionals can be found in the padel world rankings.

Background information on the French Tennis Federation:

The French Padel Federation was founded in 1989 and officially recognised by the Ministry of Sport just three years later, in 1992. Since 2014, padel has been managed by the French Tennis Federation.
