About the Team
The addition of Las Vegas Smash to the local professional sports landscape provides fans with another high-level competition to support. It also opens opportunities for local talent to pursue a career in Padel. As the sport grows in popularity nationwide, you see more porches and yards decorated with padel rackets and schoolyards filled with young talent practising the sport together and adult non-professional teams and leagues popping up in cities of all sizes. The team has gained significant sponsorship and has established partnerships with local businesses and organizations, including the Las Vegas favorite ultra-premium tequila brand, Tequila Comisario, boasting the quadruple gold slam Comisario Blanco, Comisario Reposado, Comisario Añejo and Gran Comisario expressions.
