Q: Jurgen, What does padel mean to you?
Jurgen Klopp says, “Besides football, it’s the best game I’ve ever played.
It’s a great game to play.”
That’s a pretty powerful statement from “the greatest football manager who ever lived” (op.cit. Richard Hall Smith – UK Manager Padel United UK).
A great endorsement for the game. Jurgen sure loves padel! You probably know the Liverpool manager has built a padel court at the Liverpool FC training ground and even launched his own racket with Wilson® Padel. This collaboration of Wilson with Jurgen Klopp “aims to to fuel the expanding growth of padel and build larger communities for the sport”.
This is another thing Jurgen and Rich have in common!*
*(Rich asked me to say this… 🙂 )
Here are a few features of the racket – it actually sounds pretty damn good!
Carbon Fibre Face
A strategically woven layer of carbon fibre gives players the ability to hit with impressive power.
Soft EVA Foam
Offers cushioned feel with impressive shock absorption, generating effective blend of comfort and lightweight power.
Texture features arrowhead pattern on paddle surface for excellent feel and extra degree of spin.
Encompasses ideal blend of softness, tack and comfort with additional moisture absorption through micro-perforations on the surface.
Handle strap wraps and tightens around wrist to prevent losing control of paddle. Attached to the handle it provides extra control and safety measures.
Design features signature of Jurgen Klopp, manager of Liverpool.
