Sport is one of the great pillars of the development of Buenaventura and especially of its community. Golf, tennis, runners, and now paddle players have developed small communities of fans who meet periodically to practice together.
Part of this development is in the hands of Juan Pablo Aguilera. ‘Coco’ as he is known, is constantly seeking to develop new experiences to bring the community together around sports. The camps of the Rafa Nadal and Juan Carlos Ferrero academies are some examples of this.
“It’s time to enjoy our padel complex with 4 professional courts that meet the specifications of the International Padel Federation. The two new courts are already open for use and together with the other two, we are ready to organize weekend tournaments for all sports fans,” Coco said.
Tentatively, the Buenaventura paddle tennis tournament calendar is as follows:
- April 21 to 23
- May 19 to 22
- July 28 to 30
- September 22 to 24
- November 10 to 12
- December 28 to 30
Another important event in April will be the ITF Senior International Tournament. This circuit brings together all tennis players over the age of 30 worldwide and each tournament awards points that go toward the world ranking. The Buenaventura Sports Club courts will welcome international tennis players who will seek to score points and improve their ranking.
“We will witness very good tennis that week. The important thing is that the international players who come get to discover Panama and what better way for us to do it than in Buenaventura? We hope that the members of the club will participate and begin to obtain their first points for the world ranking ”, he added.
Finally, the club director commented with satisfaction on how the club continues to evolve. “We keep growing. We have tennis, karate, yoga, basketball, and swimming classes where children and adults can come to practice their favorite sport.”
