Día 4: Semi Finals & Final
Padbol with decorations The biggest complexes in the world have a unique style because of their decoration: soccer legends, Chivi, phrases, and much more. Let’s take a look! Each branch or country has a personal mark. That’s why the surroundings of Padbol courts have different features and decorations for everyone visiting the premises to enjoy, both as players or as audience. So, now we are going to show you a different tour of the courts located around the world. There are a lot of franchises with their outdoor facilities, but those which are indoors have a unique style with images decorating their crystal walls. The United Arab Emirates, the biggest of all since it has seven courts, has Chivi – the official mascot – as its main character, as his image appears in each of the courts located and distinguished in the establishment. On the other hand, in Israel they made some graffities on all the walls with soccer legends: there Diego Maradona, Ronaldo Nazario, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Pelé, Neymar, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and many more were drawn. It is an amazing luxury! Also, some of Spain, Belgium, Romania and many others that are indoors are decorated with banners of the sport, official brands, sponsors and some technological tools. As for La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina, birthplace of Padbol, there are some decorations with the best interpreters of the sports evolution, as for example, Juanal Ramón and company. It is a good idea to highlight when the court of Padbol was made during the Russia World Cup in what was the training center of the Argentinian team in Bronitsy, where billboards of the team players from Argentina and inspiring phrases were decorating the place. So, which one is your favorite?

Padbol with an air of womanhood Begoña Calderón and Elisabeta Gherghisan are the main exponents of the brand in several European countries. They are in charge with a different point of view We always say that Padbol is all about family, and that there is no gender and no age to play it, and outside the courts it is the same. The community has licensees of different sexes and cultures around the world, and among them two women stand out, they took Padbol to the top: Begoña Calderón and Elisabeta Gherghisan. To talk about them is to talk about Padbol. They are icons of the evolution sport in their branch and took the sport to first place in Spain, Italy, Portugal and Romania, among others. Begoña, a very elegant and intelligent lady from Andalusia, specialized in Business Management, Human Resources, Organization and Strategy. All of this led to this area, creating the Spanish Padbol Federation and becoming not only the CEO of Padbol Spain, but also in Italy and Portugal. Together with her team, Calderón herself took the controls and placed the fusion sport par excellence at the top of her country. So much so that it is currently the territory with the largest number of venues in the world and has the best model players on the courts. As for Elisabeta, she is a businesswoman who has an official license in Romania. In fact, she is a big name to such a degree that several businessmen and well-known soccer players, such as the Romanian legend George Hagi, have approached her to develop events and agreements related to the sport. Even, along with Chivi, they are always the main protagonists of the championships in that country. Because of these reasons, and everything that they have been projecting in Padbol, several women have taken them as an example, which is why they didn’t start in this world just as a sport, but also as a field of business.
Why children choose to play Padbol? The sport of the future has a series of benefits that make it one of the most complete sports in the world Every day more and more children play Padbol. It had an exponential growth in different continents, and the enthusiasm to play it is advancing by leaps and bounds. That’s why so many children choose to join the fusion sport par excellence. Why is choosing Padbol a great idea? This sport combines several factors which make it unique: from motor skills to the values it instills. This is why from an early age many kids become fans of this modern, dynamic and fun game. Thinking about the growth of children, Padbol has some benefits that the rest of sports don’t: it improves motor coordination, awakens reflexes and enhances reaction such as the movements that they discover and incorporate as they reach the growth spurt. In addition, children strengthen their muscles and joints, combine aerobic exercises and can improve the technical quality of their shots. Also, and one of the main points, it is a sport that spreads certain values by sharing camaraderie, respect and fun within a court. However, it is also good to note that Padbol avoids physical contact and does not put the health of the kids at risk. It was even essential in the harshest time of the pandemic so that several children remained active while keeping a distance. Finally, aerobic work keeps children fit, allows the development of the lower body and improves physical coordination in full growth. And even the dynamics and continuity of the game also represent a focus of attention and exercise for their brain. Because of these reasons, and so much more, playing Padbol is a complete and unique experience.
