The LTA Padel Tour provides a circuit of tournaments designed to give up and coming players the opportunity to gain experience at a national level. The tournaments are grade 1, grade 2, and grade 3, therefore primarily aimed at performance players with a padel rating of 5.0 or better, although any rating may enter. The LTA Padel rating table can be viewed here:
Both men’s and women’s events are run at each tournament. Most tournaments start on a Friday evening. Qualifying draws feed through to the main draw which usually commence on the Saturday with the Finals normally scheduled on the Sunday. Matches are scheduled throughout the entire day (if required).
An LTA Licensed Referee will be responsible for the running of each event.

As of 2020 there’s a brand-new circuit just for our Senior players available in two age groups for the Men (+40 and +50), and +40 for the Ladies.
The GB Seniors Padel Tour are competitions open to all levels of play, so whether you are a seasoned regular or new to competing, there’s something for everyone!
The tournament rules and regulations are consistent to those of the LTA Padel Tour. Ranking points for GB Seniors are consistent with the LTA Padel Tour ranking tables, and listings will be categorised accordingly by age group.
Players first become eligible to compete when they are in their 40th year. After that you can move upwards to the next age group, always from the year in which you attain your new age.
Note: Rankings from 2019 that were accumulated in the +45 age-group will be distributed into the correct category upon confirmation of a player’s date of birth.

The World Padel Tour (WPT) was launched in partnership with Estrella Damm in 2013. It is the most important professional padel championship in the world, both from the organisational level of the tournaments and the participation of the best international players.
Each year there are between 15 and 20 World Padel Tour tournaments plus a final Masters Event in which the best 8 pairs in the rankings over the year compete against each other.
There are male and female events throughout the year, although the number of WPT women's events is currently about half the number of the men's.
The second UK National Club League gets under way with the LTA Padel Inter Club Championships 2020. This year teams will be organised into Division 1 and Division 2, with the top 8 teams from 2019 forming Division 1. Regional playoffs for Division 2 will be held at various venues and the national finals for both divisions will be held at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton..
The IPE continues with its exponential growth and has already presented its roadmap for 2020 with 42 locations and presence in more than 20 countries and 4 continents. The calendar of the season presents great novelties for a course full of emotion in which the padel will continue to break down borders and conquer new countries, thanks to the boost represented by the support of Bullpadel and Estrella Damm, the two main sponsors of the project.
