Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulla Al Thani – Chief Executive Officer of Ooredoo Qatar – said: “As title sponsors, we are proud to invite you to share this opportunity to participate in and support the fastest growing sport in the country. Organising last year’s IPF World Padel Championship in Qatar, with the participation of world-class and top ranked players, proved the QTF to be a hugely capable force in sports, attracting the participation of the best male and female teams in the world, and we look forward to seeing another incredible event this year.”

Tariq Zainal, QTSBF Secretary General and Tournament Director, said: “On behalf of the President and board of the QTSBF, I would like to thank HE Sheikh Faisal Bin Thani Al Thani, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Ooredoo Group, and HE Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdullah al Thani, CEO of Ooredoo Qatar, and his team for their partnership with us over the years in several of our activities and events.”

“We are very proud of their commitment to the development of padel in Qatar, the region and globally and I’m honoured today that QTSBF and Ooredoo will be signing the partnership agreement by which Ooredoo will be the title sponsor of the Qatar Major Padel event for 3 years.” He added.

“By signing this sponsorship agreement, we are restating our commitment to continue to raise the bar for hosting a world-class padel tournament in line with Qatar’s massive reputation as a global hub for sports and I have no doubt that together, we are going to deliver a great and very successful event.” Zainal said
