Babolat and the American Padel Tour (APT) have agreed a new deal that makes the French company’s Babolat Court ball and Jet Premura APT shoes the APT’s official balls and footwear. Working with Michelin, Babolat has developed dedicated shoes for the game of paddle tennis, which is becoming more international. The APT Padel Tour is an international circuit that promotes padel as a sport at all levels. In 2021, the APT will be going global through the incorporation of new tournaments outside of the American continent, including eight in Europe. The sites that will host the APT 2021 will reportedly be announced shortly.
