All-time attendance record broken — here is the new top 3
As recently as December, the attendance record in padel was broken at the Masters final in Barcelona - but now it has been broken.
The new record was set at the La Rioja Open this weekend.
The World Padel Tour's La Rioja Open tournament is now the best-attended tournament in the history of padel after reaching 13,723 seats in the semifinals.
With this figure, the La Rioja Open jumps to the first position in attendance at a padel tournament, passing the WPT Master final in 2022 in Barcelona and Premier Padel´s tournament in Mendoza, Argentina, last season.
In Barcelona, 12,141 spectators showed up during the semifinals and are now in second place. A podium that completes the Mendoza P1 of Premier Padel that reached 11,106 people also in their semifinals.
