Qatar officially joins International Padel Federation

By QLSports

The Qatar Tennis, Squash and Badminton Federation (QTSBF) officially became a member of the International Padel Federation (FIP) during its general assembly meeting held last week in Rome.

The affiliation to the global body entitles the QTSBF to host international padel tournaments and participate in other tournaments under the FIP umbrella.

Qatar is poised to make history having won the rights to host the first Padel World Championship in the Middle East which will take place in Doha from November 15 to 20, 2021.

Last year, the Qatar Olympic Committee agreed to create a Padel Committee to be affiliated with the Qatar Tennis, Squash and Badminton Federation.

QTSBF Secretary-General Tariq Zainal expressed happiness that the International Padel Federation voted for Qatar to join the federation, especially that the game has become very popular among Qatari players.

“This affiliation reflects the international confidence in the State of Qatar’s ability to host major sporting events within the highest regulatory standards, even after the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic where Qatar showed flexibility in creating new solutions that preserve the health and safety of athletes and all participants,” he added.

Zainal noted that the federation will continue to implement its plans related to hosting the World Padel Championship in November, stressing the keenness to present the best possible image that reflects Qatar’s great organizational capabilities.
