Padel is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world; this summer four Team Ireland athletes will be competing in this exciting sport at the European Games. Irish athletes will contest the Men’s Doubles and Women’s Doubles in Krakow City.
Although a new sport, there is an abundance of experience within the Irish team. The Women’s Double includes two Dubliners, ex-Professional tennis player Jennifer Claffey and former international tennis player Susan McRann. The Men’s Double consists of two Spanish-based athletes, Sean Neave who is originally from Kerry, and Sam McKibbon, from Bangor, who now lives in Marbella, Spain.
