Sergio Beracierto and Xavier Aparicio in exclusive collaboration with STIGA Sports Padel

In the world of Padel, Spaniard Sergio Beracierto and Frenchman Xavier Aparicio need no further introduction. Both have a long and successful career in the sport of padel behind them and today they jointly run the renowned training facility Oxygen Padel Club/O2 Padel Academy just outside the southern Spanish tourist paradise of Marbella. The academy also becomes a platform when the duo now officially become ambassadors and distributors for STIGA Sports Padel in their home country of Spain, where padel has had a strong foothold for several decades.

Senor Beracierto in particular is a familiar face to the Swedish padel community, as he has spent many moments in the padel metropolis of Helsingborg, where he has worked closely with former national team captain and internationally active coach Andreas Johansson. Many active Swedish top players have had their technique honed under the supervision of Team Sergio & Andreas.

"Through my many visits to Sweden, I have got to know the professional people at STIGA Sports and can see that we have a broad common value base. We share an endeavour to offer absolute top quality in all our products; from training and playing fields to rackets and other materials. Xavier and I are therefore extremely happy to be part of the STIGA Sports family and we are looking forward to contributing to the brand's strengthened position in the Spanish market" says Sergio Beracierto from Costa del Sol.

"When two of the world's most respected padel professionals not only sign a long-term cooperation agreement with us, but also decide to exclusively represent STIGA Sports Padel as a racket partner, it's like winning all possible championship titles at the same time. You can't get a better grade" says a clearly excited Mattias Westerberg, Chief Commercial Officer at STIGA Sports.
