DUBAI, 5th November, 2021 – H.
Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Sports Council, attended the grand finale of the inaugural Dubai Padel Cup, joining hundreds of enthusiastic padel tennis fans to celebrate the end of the three-day exhibition match series contested by the world’s leading male players.
Sheikh Mansoor was accompanied by Saeed Hareb, Secretary General and Board Member of Dubai Sports Council, and other VIPs.
With the sport of padel tennis experiencing an unprecedented surge in popularity across Dubai and the wider UAE, Sheikh Mansoor visited the Dubai Padel Cup – a month-long padel fiesta being held as part of this year’s Dubai Fitness Challenge – to see Juan Lebron, the world’s number one player, and playing partner Miguel Lamperti triumph over Argentine padel legend Fernando ‘Bela’ Belasteguin and rising Spanish star Arturo Coello.
