Madrid, (EFE).- The World Padel Tour is preparing an “innovative and surprising” strategic plan. The goal is to keep the presence of the players so that they continue to race before the new competition. Alex Corretja (Barcelona, ​​1974) leads the new WPT project after becoming vice-chairman, held by Ramon Agenho since 2017.

A multifaceted analyst for Eurosport, TVE and SER, Corretja has taken on the role of WPT Executive Director to “continue to be the best”. He runs an organization whose sports he sells television rights to in 140 countries.

Question: Why this new challenge in your life?

Answer: It motivates me a lot. Keep growing and developing. I come from tennis and they are like cousins ​​to me; there is no competition, I have always seen growth in this. Based on my vision as a professional tennis player, I can contribute not only to Damm, the owner of the WPT, and the organization of the World Padel Tour, but also to ensure that the players understand them and convey their ideas. I dream of creating this bridge and that we all understand each other.

I am very motivated because this is a very good opportunity and I have always practiced paddle tennis since I was a child. I only get better in paddle tennis and worse in tennis (laughs). For me padel has always been a very important motivation.

Q: Why such a boom in paddle tennis?

A: Padel is a sport that has grown a lot, certainly the one that has developed the most in the twenty-first century. You see it all over the world, wherever there are paddle tennis courts. I used to play it, but when I retired, I started spending many hours training with pros…

On a social level, it is a very exciting sport because it can be played by young people, by older people who have not yet picked up a shovel… This makes it a very global sport, with millions of people all over the world playing it today. . We have the best track in the world on the World Padel Tour and we want to keep it that way. We want to continue to be the best.

Q: You’re betting on the future of the World Padel Tour so you can say you’re the best. What can you tell about these plans?

A: I can tell you that in a few days or weeks we will present a new proposal, a new improved track that will be innovative and unexpected. The World Padel Tour puts in a lot of effort in every aspect. It’s not just an economic question, it’s a technological question, how do you present the scheme and keep improving.

We all have to develop in life. I played very well on clay and if I hadn’t progressed on hard courts I would never have made it into the top ten. These are the examples you should take; what worked for me might work for the Padel World Tour. The news that will be for boys and girls will be impressive; It’s something very exciting and I fully believe that we are going to convince them that it will continue to grow like no other. I don’t have any doubts.

Question: A future in which, as it is now and as it was in the past, there will be Estrella Damm. How important is your support for padel development?

O: That’s all. Damm has been behind the World Padel Tour for ten years, betting on padel when it didn’t exist on a professional level. A brand was created, the players grew with them, thanks to Damm they made an impression on the players, and thanks to the World Padel Tour and Damm they grew. What was the division? Yes this is correct. And, in fact, I’m here to help us all move forward; I think this is the most important thing.

Then, as is logical, everyone should try to look at their own interests, but knowing and being very clear that Damm believes in and has been doing padel for many years; also at the base with training, scholarships for players … this also weighs.
