Juan Martin del Potro has joined the Miami Padel Club as a strategic advisor, assisting with sports operations, marketing, and recruitment for the Pro Padel League (PPL) new franchise. The Argentine tennis legend will also assist in spotting potential and increasing Padel's exposure to supporters, partners, and the general public. The Miami Padel Club, consisting of seven franchises, has revealed a groundbreaking sponsorship with Greenbriar Capital Corp. The inaugural season of the PPL will feature seven clubs, with the league expected to reach over 8 million gamers by 2030.

Juan Martin del Potro, the Argentine tennis legend, has joined the ownership group of the new Miami Padel Club as a strategic advisor, as Padel continues to gain popularity in North America. Juan Martin will provide guidance on sports operations, marketing, and recruitment to the Pro Padel League (PPL) new franchise as they put together their team. In addition, he will assist the team in spotting potential and increase Padel’s exposure to supporters, partners, and the general public.

“I am really happy to have Juan Martin join the Miami Padel Club,” stated Ronnie Strasser, the club’s owner. “His wealth of experience as a highly accomplished athlete, along with his expertise and enthusiasm for the game, will be crucial in achieving our objective of increasing public awareness and comprehension of Padel.” As we continue to collaborate with important stakeholders to create an exciting and competitive Club, he is a perfect fit for our group.

When Juan Martin defeated Roger Federer in the U.S. Open final in 2009, history was made. In addition to his 22 tour-level victories, he secured three more victories in 2018 before taking home his maiden Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Tour championship in Stuttgart, Germany. At the BNP Paribas Open in 2018, he achieved a career-high ATP Tour Ranking of No. 3 in the rankings. In addition, he created waves by winning bronze and silver in the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympics.

Del Potro remarked, “It is an honor to join the Miami Padel Club at such an exciting time.” “We both have a strong passion for the game, and by bringing more players and fans closer to the action, this is a fantastic opportunity to drive growth in a vibrant, diverse community like Miami.” Miami is the core of Padel because the city offers a distinct chance to develop a team and a fan base that can compete with other teams in the league, as well as a solid basis for the game.

“With our first season of competition starting in May, the PPL is rapidly expanding and we are building an exciting platform that is developing Padel in North America,” PPL Commissioner Marcos Del Pilar stated. “Juan Martin is not only a valuable asset to the Miami Padel Club, but his advice will help us grow both the sport and our global fan base by giving the League international exposure.”

Top players Ruben Rivera (USA), Jose Grizpe (USA), Simon Charaf Jones (Mexico), Mateo Coles (USA), Paloma Cortina (USA), Brittney Dubins (USA), and Maria Fernanda Espinosa (Mexico) are among the seven franchises that make up Miami’s Padel Club.

The Club has revealed a groundbreaking sponsorship with Greenbriar Capital Corp, the first publicly traded ESG company to sponsor a Pro Padel League franchise, to raise anticipation for its maiden season. Greenbriar Capital Corp. is a top developer of renewable energy and sustainable real estate (Toronto Venture Exchange: GRB, US OTC Market: GEBRF).

Seven clubs will compete in the PPL’s inaugural season, which will begin in Tampa on May 13 and end with the PPL CUP on June 10–11, which will crown the league winner. Each team will use the international scoring formula and include two male and two female players.
