Cascais Padel Masters, one of the most important competitions on the World Padel Tour, has been postponed to September 2021, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“After months of conversation with World Padel Tour and health authorities, as well as with Cascais City Hall and the main sponsors of Cascais Padel Masters, we concluded that, at this moment, there are no conditions to ensure the security of all – athletes and public”, justified João Martins, director of the competition.

Initially, the competition in Cascais, which would be the third edition, should have happened in September of this year, but, because of the

Covid-19 pandemic and the postponement of some of the circuit stage, it will only happen between 21 and 26 September 2021, after the tournaments in Stockholm, Rome and Buenos Aires.

“Being that this [security] is the main concern of the organisation, it was decided to skip this edition and come back in 2021 with the tournament”, added João Matins.

Last year, Cascais Padel Master winners were Pablo Lima and Ale Galán in the male category, and Marta Orega and Marta Marrero in the female category.
