Monaco to host inaugural Padel Best Expo and CUPRA FIP Tour 2024 stage this April

Monaco’s Grimaldi Forum will host the inaugural Padel Best Expo, a new concept from the creators of the Five Padel Cup, from 7th to 9th April 2024. The event is set to showcase the latest technology and trends in the sport as well as bring together players from across the global padel community.

The event will not only serve as a hub for padel fans, but it will also host a stage of the CUPRA FIP Tour 2024, which is managed by the International Padel Federation, marking it as a key moment in the worldwide professional padel circuit.

Roberta Ceccarelli, the CEO of BSG, which founded the Five Padel Cup, emphasises Padel Best Expo’s objectives: “The Padel Best Expo is cantered on three pillars: entertainment, showcasing the padel universe and innovation.”

The event will highlight the crossover appeal of padel with the participation of Ukrainian football legend Andriy Shevchenko, the 2004 Golden Ball winner and former AC Milan striker, as an ambassador for ‘Football for Ukraine’. A portion of the proceeds from the event will also benefit Fight Aids Monaco, the HIV charity founded by Monaco’s Princess Stéphanie.

Cécilia D’Ambrosio, the president of the Monegasque Padel Federation, has shared her enthusiasm for the partnership with BSG, noting, “The Padel Best Expo aligns perfectly with our goals to promote padel’s growth in Monaco and beyond. It marks the beginning of a promising collaboration aimed at showcasing a sport that’s gaining worldwide popularity.”

Alongside the main event, the Five Padel Cup will hold its second edition and a series of temporary courts will be set up in and around the venue to facilitate the high-powered play. The Barbagiuans of Monaco, led by Louis Ducruet and founded by Prince Albert II, will compete in the tournament and the home side is set to include a number of famous names and faces. Player details will be announced soon.
