Today, the Pro Padel League (PPL) – North America’s first professional Padel league – is excited to announce that Taktika has purchased the league’s second franchise which will be located in San Diego, “America’s finest City.”

Taktika was established to provide comprehensive industry related production ranging from the installation of Padel courts to facility management, and the development of programs and tournaments. Targeting the Western United States, Taktika’s founders include local San Diego entrepreneurs Gabriel Perez Krieb, Armando Rodiel, Ascan Lutteroth, Ińigo Gonzalez Covarrubias, and Ryan Redondo.

“I have spent a lot of time playing at Taktika Padel at the Barnes Tennis Center and think it is one of the best facilities in the world,” commented Marcos del Pilar, Commissioner of the PPL. “I am so excited that the team is going to be owned by a group that is dedicated to growing Padel in San Diego and across the country.”

Taktika’s first established club, Taktika Padel, is based out of the award-winning facility, the Barnes Tennis Center, in San Diego, California. Home to one of the most successful tennis programs and centers in the world, the Barnes Tennis Center hosts an ATP 250 and WTA 500 level professional tennis tournament. A seven court facility, Taktika Padel has built a stadium court, installed live streaming cameras, and has a performance center for physical training and rehab, food and beverage, and a dedicated pro shop.

“As a proud supporter of Padel in the United States, I am thrilled to continue to grow the game of Padel on the professional level with the purchase of the San Diego franchise,” stated Ińigo Gonzalez Covarrubias of Taktika. “Our mission is to bring this wonderful sport to our community and have people of all ages and backgrounds enjoy the sport. The Pro Padel League will help further our mission to do just that.”

“We are ecstatic to bring the PPL to San Diego and the Barnes Tennis Center, '' added Ryan Redondo of Taktika, Tournament Director of the ATP 250 and WTA 500 San Diego Open, and CEO of Youth Tennis San Diego. “Having successfully run professional events of all levels in San Diego, I am so excited to bring professional Padel to the city of San Diego. We have already built a rich culture of Padel out of the Barnes Tennis Center, and believe the community is going to find a new favorite sport in Professional Padel and inspire kids and people of all ages to join this beautiful sport.”

In the weeks ahead, the PPL will be announcing other key cities that have been awarded franchises. These teams will ignite a Padel phenomenon in the U.S. and position the PPL at the forefront of the Padel explosion that is happening in North America.

The PPL’s inaugural season will kick-off in the Spring of 2023 (with dates to be announced in January) and conclude with the PPL CUP Championship. During the first season, each team will consist of two male and two female players and will follow the international scoring format.

The PPL’s mission is to create a premier sports league providing a national stage for the sport while generating nationwide awareness and excitement for Padel. Something that has never been done before, the PPL will provide players and fans with a new platform that showcases Padel and grows participation in the sport.

Currently, Padel has over 25 million players worldwide and is growing in popularity in the U.S. with the number of Padel courts set to double in 2022. Over 8 million players are projected to be playing in the U.S. by 2030. The PPL will enable players, coaches, team owners, facility owners, broadcasters, fans, sponsors, and brands to all be involved in, and capitalize on, the sport’s explosive growth.

The league is dedicated to celebrating Padel’s Spanish roots and has made VAMOS the PPL’s official slogan. For more information on the PPL, visit: https://propadelleague.com/. VAMOS!
