Because of randomness (or maybe not), the destiny brought together Nacho, Janne and Martí to Jyväskylä, Finland.

In 2021, In the middle of the padel boom, while Nacho was in Finland spending a paternity leave, he realized he had many things to say in a country that padel was growing from a very basic level.

There was a clear need of understanding the fundamentals of padel, proper methodologies, train coaches and provide high quality materials… and he was willing to help. With the support of Janne, Finspadel was born, and Nacho left his life in Spain to move to Finland permanently.

One day, Nacho received a message from a guy called Martí who was moving to Finland to complete his studies. They fell in love immediately. Nacho and Martí started working together hand by hand while Martí studied the last courses of his degree. In summer 2022 Martí decided to leave Barcelona to join Finspadel Akatemia and move to Finland permanently.

What is coming in the future is very promising and totally uncertain…but we are ready for it.
