2023 Padel season has been a good one for the Bourne Club male players, with 3 tournament wins between them out of 20 LTA tournaments combined.
Brian Condren has also competed on the international stage, representing his home nation of Ireland in the FIP Vets European Champions, FEPA Vets European Championships in Belgium & FEPA European Championships in Lisbon. Playing for your country is a huge honour, and a very proud movement for Brian & his family.
Jamie Wilkinson & Brian Condren who play together have seen some great success this year, winning the Welsh Open & the Winchester Open. They have also competed in several regional & British Tour events over the year, playing some of the best players in the UK. Both Brian & Jamie have finished the year in the top 50 players in the UK, a huge achievement from them. Jamie & Brian lead the Men’s A team who made the IPadel & Wilson league.
After on picking up a Padel racket 12 months ago, Barney Brown has stormed into his Padel journey with a brilliant 2023. Barney has played 11 tournaments, winning a first round match at a British Tour event. Barney has ended the year with a win at the Adidas HOP event securing him an Adidas sponsorship for 2024, an invite to the Adidas HOP finals this weekend, and an invite to the U18 GB training camp just before Xmas.
