Eli Amatriaín, a professional paddle tennis player from Spain, started her racket sport career when she was just 8 years old.
She is driven by the absolute dedication you need every day to get out on the court and excel yourself. I see sport as a wonderful experience to get to know myself better, my talents and weaknesses. It’s also through my sport that I have learned to face my fears head on. My sport has provided me the passion and drive I need to improve every day. And it’s a joy.
Alongside her career as professional paddle tennis athlete, Eli practices as a psychologist. In her spare time, Eli loves reading and spending time outdoors in nature.
Eli would like to see the paddle tennis sport as part of the Olympics.
