After the cancellation of the WPT Vigo, both players and fans of this sport were broken by the news. “WPT Vigo is suspended for obvious reasons that we all know about, hopefully everything will be back to normal soon”, shared Fernando Belasteguín in his Instagram.
The situation that is being experienced these days due to the arrival of the pandemic caused by the Covid-19, is being hard for the world of padel and for those people who took some time out of their free time to play.
However, professional players cannot stop training, so they continue their routines from home.
Paquito Navarro, number 1 of the WPT, wanted to approach his fans with a challenge promoted through Instagram: “Bored at home 🏠? I leave you a Challenge! Upload your best trotada at home naming me with the hashtag #TrotadaEnCasa and you will participate in the draw of a signed t-shirt. Let’s get to work!”.
Juan Martín Díaz also wanted to share his isolation with his followers and offered a question and answer session through the stories in his profile. Many are the ones who have dared to send questions to Juan Martin.
Ingrid van Boven has decided to set up a small sports area in her living room and a small mini padel court on her terrace. Her daughter, Arantxa, has been chosen to be the opponent and with one table per net they have started to play.
Jordi Juan Giménez has also chosen his daughter to practice sport these days at home. The little girl, with a padel in her hand, was running from one side of the room to the other obeying her father’s instructions. In addition, Jordi has also taken advantage of being at home to join the Instagram viral challenge in which he has to hit a roll of toilet paper, as if it were a ball, 10 times.
Marta Marrero encourages her fans to play sports at home. Through several photos in her profile you can see her exercising by the pool in her garden while sharing encouragement to the health services of our country: “in these difficult times I want to take advantage to support and give all my encouragement to all of you who are going through the virus, also of course, to the entire health sector for the enormous effort you make and the great risks you are running day after day. You are the heroes and heroines of the whole world, lots of strength and millions of thanks!
Marta Ortega did not want to be left behind either and wanted to make sure that she was carrying out her training routines. By means of a photo in Instagram she wanted to make clear that “I am going to upload something to show that I have trained…I didn’t plan to do it, but it seems that if you don’t upload it you haven’t done it!
Alejandra Salazar wanted to show that she does listen to the measures proposed to end this situation as soon as possible. With the hashtag “#Yomequedoencasa” she has shared with her followers an image in the garden and quite smiling.
