”Padel is the biggest sport in Spain after football and since living and playing here, I’ve caught the padel fever”, says Lewandowski.
"“As I look to the future, I can see many opportunities. Padel will grow even more around the world. I heard about the Hexagon Cup and loved the concept of attracting Team Owners from different sports. This is my chance to take my passion for sport to the next level. The creation of the RL9 team is an exciting move for me. I’m thrilled to be joining the padel community, and I’m now committed to signing the best players and creating what I hope will be a championship winning team!”".
