The QOC organized the first edition of its Padel Tournament last year with participation of 96 players. QOC’s organization of the Padel Tournament comes within the framework of strengthening its role in social responsibility and raising awareness of the importance of practicing sport for a healthy and disease-free life, as the main goal of the Olympic Committee. The game of Padel is a sport that combines the best elements of tennis and squash. A Padel court is smaller than a tennis court. It is one of the most popular sports in the world, especially in Spain.
