The world of padel sports the CUPRA badge
Last May, CUPRA took the padel court by storm by assembling a unique team of ambassadors with Fernando Belasteguín, Pablo Lima, Alejandra Salazar and Ariana Sánchez. In June, CUPRA announced its partnership with the World Padel Tour (WPT) for the next three years. Throughout 2019 the brand has been present at the international tournaments of the professional circuit, but beginning next year it will also become the premium sponsor of all official WPT competitions until 2021.
