The best quality certification possible came from the playersGiven that all the big names in the international paddle are on the first date, except for Augustine Tapia and Miguel Lamperti, the equipment is blocked due to a deal with sponsor Knox. But it’s a very small sesame on a board – 56 pairs – they’re full.
