International Padel Club facility manager World Padel Club Limited (WPC) is proud to announce it has signed an agreement with Henri Leconte Padel (HLP), to roll out Padel Clubs across Australia & NZ together.

The partnership will start with Australia’s first Padel Club named World Padel Club Sydney. This is the first officially sanctioned Australian Padel Club by the Australian Padel Federation, and is scheduled to open at the re-booted and action packed precinct of the Entertainment Quarter (next to the SCG) in December 2015.

Henri Leconte is known as Master of the Tennis Universe, with a decorated career including being the World’s #5 singles player, Davis Cup Champion (for France in 1991), and Grand Slam Doubles Winner (French Open 1984).

Since leaving the ATP Tour, Henri has been a regular fixture on the Masters Tour (over 35’s), entertaining stadiums around the world with his showmanship, incredible Tennis skills & colourful personality.

Henri Leconte said “I have always loved Australia and its people, and its like coming home when I play here. With the amazing climate and massive sports playing public, I believe Padel Tennis will be a huge success. Working with the local Aussie knowledge of the World Padel Club team, we will make World Padel Club Sydney the HQ for Padel in Australia!”

Matt Barrelle, CEO of the World Padel Club, and Australian native commented: “Henri is a true Tennis and Padel legend, and we can’t wait to open the first WPC Club in Australia with such an influencer in racquet sports. Henri will be playing with other Sporting Celebrities at the Sydney Padel Club in January, before the Aussie Open, so come and see what the Padel fuss is all about, and why its known as the most addictive sport in the World!”

World Padel Club is the leading aggregator of Padel Clubs, owning and operating a network of high quality facilities in key locations internationally. Besides the clubs in Genoa Italy & Sydney Australia, WPC plans to rollout more clubs over the next 12 months in Australia, UK, and Europe.
