How The Federation Started
The Egyptian Padel Federation (EPF) was officially founded on March 13th, 2022 under the auspices of the Ministry of Youth and Sports along with the patronage of HE Mr. Ashraf Sobhy, Minister of Youth and Sports. The EPF is an official member of the International Padel Federation (FIP), following its footsteps in conducting local and international federated tournaments – in conjunction with the FIP – with consistent pointing and ranking systems.
The EPF’s mission is to facilitate the progression of Egyptian Padel players in order to continually enhance their physical, tactical, and mental levels and ultimately reach rankings in the world’s top 20 within the coming five to seven years. In order to do so, the EPF is focused on three main pillars:
EPF COACHES ACADEMY
The Rationale behind focusing on coaches development is to widen the potential number of top Padel players in Egypt in conjunction with a larger pool of top-class coaches.
THE ROAD TO 1,000 JUNIORS
This program is designed to focus on the enhancement of juniors from an early stage for them to be prepared to compete at the highest level by their late teens
THE RACE TO FIP FINALS
a circuit of federated local and international tournaments conducted during the year, providing our top players with a more rounded and challenging Padel exposure.
The EPF’s Board of Directors (BOD), comprised of seven members with a collective passion for Padel and an average age of 39, have been appointed to put the EPF’s plans into effect. Hereunder is a list of the current BOD:
