In a jaw-dropping twist that sent ripples through the padel universe, Mariano Amat, the coach extraordinaire, dropped a bombshell last Thursday – he's officially hanging up his coaching hat! πŸ™€

Amat, the wizard behind the success of legends like Juan Lebron and Alejandro Galan, is saying farewell to an illustrious career right at the top of the game. And here's the kicker: he's stepping down from his role at the world's padel epicenter, the M3 Padel Academy, nestled in the heart of Madrid.

Now, let's talk about the M3 Padel Academy. This place is legendary, often dubbed the holy grail of padel training. It's where talents like Delfi Brea, Mike Yanguas, and Sofia Araujo honed their skills under Amat's watchful eye. It's basically the padel Hogwarts! πŸ§™β€β™‚οΈπŸ“œ

Ronaldo's latest venture is nothing short of epic – he's bringing the padel fever to Portugal with a whopping 17-court padel complex in Oeiras. We're talking about a real-life 'City of Padel' here, folks! πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Ή

The Portuguese Padel Federation is giving Ronaldo's 'CR7' company the keys to this ambitious project, and boy, are we in for a treat. This place is going to be THE hub for international padel showdowns, right near the heart of Lisbon. Estimated investment? A cool €5 million! πŸ’°πŸ’°

Now, if you're wondering what's got Ronaldo diving headfirst into the padel game, it's simple – he's head over heels for this sport! He's not just a fan; he's a true-blue enthusiast, and he's on a mission to take padel to new heights in Portugal and beyond.

So, here's the scoop: The European Padel Championship 2023, which we've all been eagerly anticipating, has hit the pause button on its original October date. Yep, you read that right! Instead of this year, we're looking at a new showdown in 2024. It's like hitting the snooze button on your alarm clock, but trust us, this one's worth the wait! πŸ•’

Before this rescheduling, the paddles were practically trembling with excitement. National team squads had been picked, and players were all set to show off their skills in sunny Sardinia, Italy. The buzz was real! πŸŒžπŸ†

Now, here's the plot twist: Padel-TV, our friends from Sweden who live and breathe padel, were the first to drop this bombshell. They pulled the curtain back on the reschedule, leaving us all wondering, "Why?" πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Your grip is the cornerstone of your padel game.

Imagine this: you're on the court, racquet in hand, and you want to rock those shots. How? With the "continental grip," of course! It's like your trusty tennis serve grip, but with a little twist: your index knuckle should be angled towards the racquet's side. 🎾

Now, why should you care about this grip? Well, hold onto your hats because it's your ticket to versatility galore! 🎩 With this grip, you're like a padel maestro, able to finesse the ball with grace or summon the fury of a thousand smashes. It's all at your fingertips! πŸ’₯πŸ’ͺ

So there you have it, pals – the continental grip, the not-so-secret sauce for padel greatness. Get a grip on it (literally), and watch your game soar to new heights! πŸŒŸπŸš€
