This sport event is related to the 100th anniversary of the Belgian Deaf sport Committee. With this first Europe Cup padel, the BDC and his partners takes a fundamental step in the development of padel. This event will be a turning point for the growth of the sport, padel. Before this sport can be part of the several European Championships of the European Deaf Sport Organization (EDSO) there should be a sufficient international presence at an exhibition tournament.
