First time in Austria — WPT Vienna Open kicks off
The WPT circuit arrives on Austrian soil with the WPT Vienna Open for the first time.
The last 32 of the WPT Vienna Open get underway this Wednesday. This tournament will be the first to reach Austrian soil, where padel has grown a lot in recent years. The first padel court was built in Vienna in 2014, and nowadays, there are more than 100.
The chosen venue for the tournament will be the Steffl Arena, a stadium located in the center of Vienna, where ice hockey tournaments are usually held. This stadium, built in 1995 and remodeled in 2011, has a capacity of 7000 spectators and was specially conditioned for the occasion, leaving the ice for padel courts.
This Wednesday, World Padel Tour TV will broadcast three matches of the women's round of 32 from 10:00 in the morning. In the afternoon, from 15:30 onwards, it will broadcast three games from the first round of the men's draw.
