Emirates Post Group has released two distinctive stamps to commemorate the “UAE Wild Card Padel Championship” and the “World Padel Tour Modon Abu Dhabi Padel Master 2023”. These stamps are unique because of their die-cut design that represents two padel bats, one for each tournament, to commemorate the global and national sporting events that were hosted in the UAE.
World Padel Tour (WPT) is the world’s leading professional padel circuit. The “UAE Wild Card Padel Championship”, sponsored by Emirates Post Group in partnership with UAE Padel Association and Abu Dhabi Sports Council, was organized across three weekends in three different emirates – Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah, from 27 January to 12 February. Over 190 professional padel players from the UAE and GCC, nationals and residents, competed in the UAE Wild Card Padel Championship which awarded ‘wild card’ entries to the winning teams to compete in the Qualification round of the “World Padel Tour Modon Abu Dhabi Padel Master 2023”.
Meanwhile, the first Master tournament in the 2023 WPT season, presented by Abu Dhabi Sports Council in partnership with Abu Dhabi Tourism, was held from 21 February to 26 February 2023 at Bab Al Nojoum on Hudayriat Island, Abu Dhabi. As many as 128 top-ranked men and women padel stars competed for the top spot during this event.
Emirates Post Group’s participation and sponsorship demonstrates its commitment to promoting sports in the UAE and the region, further inspiring the community to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.
Abdulla Mohammed Alashram, Group CEO of Emirates Post Group, said: “We are proud to have been the title sponsor of the national padel championship and one of the gold sponsors of the World Padel Tour Abu Dhabi Padel Master. To appeal to sports enthusiasts, the unique design of the stamps makes them a coveted collectible. We remain committed to working with the UAE Padel Association and sports councils across the Emirates to promote sports development.”
Alashram added: “At Emirates Post Group, we are dedicated to nurturing the growth of young athletes and promoting their participation in local and international competitions. By doing so, we aim to solidify the UAE’s status as a leading sports hub.”
The commemorative stamps will be officially launched at the World Padel Tour Modon Abu Dhabi Padel Master 2023 finals (tonight, February 26). They will be available for purchase at all Emirates Post Customer Happiness Centres and online at www.emiratespostshop.ae.
