    Premier Padel has announced a multi-year partnership with Qatar Airways as it becomes the new Title Sponsor, Tour Finals Sponsor, and Official Airline Partner.

    As part of this significant partnership, the official tour will be renamed the Qatar Airways Premier Padel Tour. In addition, the tour final taking place in Barcelona on December will be renamed the “Qatar Airways Premier Padel Finals”.
