From 5th to 12th June 2022, Austrian sports fans were able to experience the exhilaration of padel being played at the highest level. The best players from across the world competed at the first ever Vienna Padel Open, held at the STEFFL Arena. To mark their victory, the winning teams – Ariana Sánchez and Paula Josemaría from Spain and Sanyo Gutiérrez and Agustín Tapia from Argentina – were presented with an exquisite watch from the latest Certina collection.
Since the beginning of this year, the watch brand has been heavily involved in developing this powerful up-and-coming sport. Marc Aellen, CEO of Certina, travelled to Vienna for the final on 12th June to experience the event in person. Certina is the official partner of the Vienna Padel Open, which is part of the World Padel Tour – an international series of tournaments hosted in cities such as Miami, Madrid and Stockholm as well as Vienna.
