Egypt and Japan ready for World Padel Championship in Qatar
It was Egypt on the men's side and Japan on the women's side who took the two available places via the African and Asian qualifiers for the World Padel Championship in Qatar.
This weekend, the African and Asian qualifiers for the World Padel Championship were held in Egypt. The host country Egypt won on the men's side against Iran in the final.
This means that it is the first time an African team participates in the World Padel Championship.
Also, on the women's side, the host country made it to the final. However, Japan proved too difficult there and won in two straight matches to make it to the Qatar World Cup.
The Qatar World Cup will see 38 nations participate and will be played between 31 October and 4 November.
