Supporting the best within the sport of padel
The Blockchain.com Miami Padel Open 2022 takes place this week from February 22 -27 and we’re excited to support this incredible tournament as title sponsor.
Taking place at Island Gardens Miami, the six-day lifestyle and entertainment sporting event is part of the World Padel Tour and will bring together the best within the sport of padel.
Padel is played by over 25 million people worldwide and is currently the second biggest sport in Argentina and Spain.
“Padel is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world, particularly in Latin America where we have an increasingly large footprint of customers, partners, and employees,” Blockchain.com CEO Peter Smith.
If you’re not yet familiar with Padel, you can think of it as a mixture between tennis and squash. It’s mainly played in pairs and within an enclosed court surrounded by walls.
Blockchain.com employee and padel fanatic Francisco Quartin de Macedo explains: “Padel is a great sport for socialization because it’s a doubles’ sport, but also because it allows everyone to interact during a match given the shorter distance to the opponent, It’s so exciting to work for a company that supports the growth of such an amazing sport!”
We’re committed to investing in and engaging with the local Miami community and this sponsorship coincides with the opening of our new permanent Miami office at the Cube Wynwood.
If you’re in Miami this week, be sure to check out this ultimate padel tournament experience which will be broadcast globally, and available on YouTube.
