Asia Pacific Padel Tour (APPT)

Asia Pacific Padel Tour (APPT) played its first tournament in November 2024 in Bali, Indonesia. The Tour aims to promote padel in Asia and provide opportunities for local professional players to grow in Asia Pacific.

With this mission, APPT has played six tournaments in Bali (Indonesia), Manila (Philippines), Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Hong Kong (China), and Shenzhen (China) and Phuket. In addition, before the end of the year, it will pass through at least Indonesia, Singapore, Japan, and the UAE. So, the season will close with more than 10 tournaments in different countries in Asia Pacific.

In terms of participants, the Tour already has more than 750 registered participants from more than 70 different countries. Among these, players from local countries stand out, but there is also a significant community of European players (especially Spanish) who live in Asia or travel to play in the various tournaments. It should be noted that the circuit draws players to each city where a tournament is held, and this factor is key to the growth of APPT. In addition, the tournament is creating a loyal community, and good proof of this is that 45% of the participants are in the amateur category and come from different Eastern countries.
