Mauri Andrini as Coach

In 2001 he decided to stop playing professionally so that he could go to university. He studied Bachelor in Communication and Public Relations finishing his studies in 2008. He worked at both Danone Group and Santander bank after completing his studies during 2008 (Argentina) and 2012 (Spain). After these jobs he travelled to London to improve his English language skills.

It was in London in 2013 when he had the opportunity to join the David Lloyd Leisure Group, the most famous chain of health and fitness clubs in the UK as their Head Padel Co-ordinator. Since then Mauri has been traveling to different countries teaching padel, doing clinics and playing exhibition matches he has worked in padel clubs in Sweden, Austria, Belgium, Holland, Germany, France, Greece, Mexico, Argentina, Spain, United Arab Emirates, Lithuania and Italy.

In 2014, Mauricio was named by the British Padel Federation "Head Coach" of both the Adult and Junior British teams. In November 2015, Mauri, as Junior Head Coach together with Matt Thomas, achieved 3rd position in the Padel World Championships in Mexico, behind the two strong teams of Argentina and Spain. This was a huge achievement as it was a Great Britain's first appearance at the Junior World Championships.

In July 2016 the Adult British team participated in the Padel Championship  qualifying tournament in Lithuania, they won that tournament and so gained the right to play in the Padel Championship in Lisbon 2016 where they got 8th position beating all records for the National team.

 

But apart from sport, what Mauri loves is to see people happy. What most characterises him is his sense of humour and laughter, which are present in lessons, clinics and in exhibitions.  His dream is that more people get to know this fantastic sport and take padel to every part of the world generating thousands of Padel Lovers!

"I may be a dreamer, but I will never stop traveling around the world until everyone knows that Padel is the most wonderful and complete sport in the world”.

All these activities are just some of the ways in which Mauri is constantly seeking to promote the sport of Padel which with the help of HELLO PADEL and the HELLO PADEL ACADEMY he is connecting with other people around the world to give prominence to such an exciting sport. 

As he always says, Hello Padel to everyone.
