Belen Salcedo (Owner and Padel coach)



I study law and I did a master in Marketing. I was working in a law office and then I moved to Marketing. I was working in a media agency for 2 years. The economic situation was no good in Spain so I decided to go abroad. I went to Canada first ( Vancouver) wonderful place. I started to promote padel being the Vice president Marketing at Padel Association in British Columbia. I decided to play a tournament in Kelowna (Canada) and I met some people from Houston. They invited me to go to Houston and I did. I came to Houston and I met my actual husband! 

I started to be a padel coach 5 years ago in Houston, teaching padel classes to women, men and kids. I did a training for a week in Madrid Spain with Maximo Castellote. Another training for a week in Houston with Diego Pezzoni. For a weekend I was doing a Physical Preparation in padel in Madrid by Antonio Portillo. In 2019 I did a course to certify as a a padel coach in USA by Mike May, the USPA and USPTA. Training with Marcela Ferrari
