Over four days, these top players will showcase their skills in intense matches, providing non-stop action and entertainment for fans.
Apart from thrilling padel matches, the World Padel League will also feature three spectacular concerts featuring renowned international artists. On 8 June, Emirati singer Shamma Hamdan, a rising star in the world of Khaliji music and the first Emirati woman to make it to the finals of Arabs Got Talent, will take the stage to enthral music fans. British soul and pop band Simply Red will make their long-awaited return to Dubai after 20 years when he performs at the tournament in 9 June.
