How to host a successful padel tournament

Hosting tournaments offers a great way to engage your player base. And let’s face it, every once in a while, players want to be more competitive. In this article, we’ll discuss how to host the “perfect” padel tournament.

1. Planning is key

This one sort of speaks for itself, however is often overlooked or not taken seriously enough - start to plan for the event in time. At the end of the day, players come to your venue to do just that, play, and want to optimize their time - make the most of their padel experience. 

2. A warm welcome

Just like every other successful event, you want to make your guests feel welcome - feel at home. Greet your guests when they arrive, perhaps even install a screen highlighting the event.
A gesture that surely will leave a lasting impression and make people want to come back over and over again.

3. Tournament level

When planning your tournament and creating communications/invitations to it - make sure to be clear about the level of players. Nobody wants to attend a tournament where they end up not having a chance in the games. If you run an open tournament, we recommend Mexicano - where the players are automatically divided into clusters based on how skilled they are.

4. Create an incentive

We all love to win things, big or small - it’s in our nature. Gather sweatbands, water bottles or similar for the winners, naturally with your brand on. Aside from this, try to reach out to your local network, maybe there are companies that want to be involved and seen?

5. Easy-to-use tournament platform
