A brief history of the America’s Cup

The America’s Cup started in the Spring of 2023 with seven teams in its inaugural season, as a way to connect padel players together from all parts of North and South America. After teams competed locally in their respective markets, they converged at Canas Tennis and Padel in Miami for a Showdown. The America’s Cup was founded by redPADEL that looked to provide a service to the sport of padel by hosting an annual tournament that would pit skill, talent and comradery together in team match play. This event is now an annual staple marquee team padel experience kicking off redPADEL’s season.
