International Padel Federation (FIP) & WORL PADEL TOUR (WPT) tournaments
In 2019, the FIP and WPT have reached an agreement to unify and make a unique point and ranking system. The main purpose is to develop and
improve the sport, since these tournaments are an excellent way to motivate local players, and players from other countries, to travel and to share experiences with other players from the rest of the world.
FIP Cupra Tour 2020 is a fantastic opportunity to get World Padel Tour ranking points for those players willing to compete in the professional circuit, WPT.
A new concept to help increase the number of professional players around the world. The FIP circuit will be composed of three categories: FIP Star, Rise and Promotion.

The ranking, or the scoring system, will be unique and recognizable worldwide from this season. This is the main agreement between the two highest padel organizations, the World Padel Tour (WPT) and the International Padel Federation (FIP).
WPT and FIP continue to strengthen their collaboration. Both entities have decided to unify the Ranking by points in the male and female categories, an initiative that lays the foundations of determined joint cooperation of both organizations for the professional development of the padel and that will be a reality from next July 1st.
The initiative carried out by both entities will provide the padel with a more professionalized view of the sport. On the one hand, WPT will continue as an international reference for the professional padel and, on the other hand, the FIP will serve as a support point for the national federations, which will equip the circuit with world-class tournaments, boosting the local game, helping to increase the level and number of players and with it the development of the padel.
From this same season, the scoring system is organized around seven newly created categories designed to facilitate the access of the maximum number of players to the professional Circuit. To the four categories organized by World Padel Tour (Master Final, Master, Open and Challenger), which will maintain the current score, there are three others: FIP Star, FIP Rise and FIP Promotion, whose organization will depend directly and exclusively on the FIP, including all regulatory aspects (calendar, composition, regulations and requirements).
The new tournament configuration will allow players from all over the world to earn points that will allow them to participate in WPT events. A system, in short, that will give them the opportunity to play in tournaments organized in their countries of origin and accumulate experience and ranking.
This is the new typology of tournaments that will add to the new unified ranking
