Last weekend, September 27, 28 and 29, the V OPEN DE PADEL, which has been organizing the Totana Tennis Club for 5 years and that has already become a reference for paddle tennis, took place at the facilities of the Totana Tennis Club. the region.
On this occasion it has had the participation of 110 couples from throughout the Region of Murcia and divided into 5 categories, male, female and mixed, especially highlighting the participation in the federated first category of the couple formed by the Valencian Javi Rico and the Cartagenero Víctor Ruiz, 29 and 37 of the world respectively and who won the title by imposing in the final the regional champions of this year the Murcian Pedro Vera and the lorquino José Mouliaá.
In the semifinals Rico and Ruiz defeated the totanero Fran Abellaneda and his partner José Antonio Fuentes de Torre-pacheco 7-6, 6-4 being undoubtedly the best match of those that have been played throughout the tournament.
The rest of totanera participation highlights the victory of María Dolores Ortiz "Mado" in the second federated women's category and Diego López in the 5th men's division.
The level of the tournament has been very high with several professional players who regularly participate in the World Paddle Tour Circuit, such as Javi Rico, who had just finished in the Tournament in Mijas.
In addition to the high level of paddle, participants were able to enjoy all the gifts and activities organized by the tournament organization as a welcome cocktail dinner on Friday, paellas, crumbs, churros, fritters, raffles ... etc.
At the same time the III Tennis Tournament has also taken place in which the Champion has been the totanero Luis Nicolás defeating Manuel Olmedo in the final, a player from Caravaca and winner last year.
Finally, I would like to thank the municipal authorities for attending the event as well as the presence of the president of the Murcia Padel Federation.
And of course, to thank all the sponsors of the Tournament, since without them it would be impossible to hold an event of this level.
