HEAD and World Padel Tour
The relationship between HEAD and World Padel Tour began five seasons ago. In this period of time, both entities have walked hand in hand to turn the professional tour into a reference in innovation and technology in the sporting field. The ball is a key figure in the game and HEAD has placed itself ahead of its competitors by introducing a new version of its already renowned Official WPT ball in 2017. The HEAD "Pro S" was created in response to those who desired a quicker ball.
