A fondness for “Bela”!
A dream. So Fernando Belasteguin, known as “Bela”, described his visit to Roland-Garros as part of the padel exhibition on offer on court 5 during the tournament. The public was able to witness a taste of a very high level. The opportunity also for “Bela” to do a first exploration for the Greenweez Premier Padel Major. See you on July 11 at the Roland-Garros stadium.

Youth Interleague 2022
The 2022 French Youth Interleague Championships takes place on 24, 25 and 26 August. The Padel Club of Toulouse will host the event again, with the participation of 12 boys’ teams and 6 girls’ teams. As a reminder, a team consists of a U14 pair, a U16 pair and a U18 pair. Who will follow the PACA league this year?

Rank Calculation
Back to normal on the calculation of the ranking! Temporarily, and to alleviate the Covid crisis, the tournament eligibility period was increased from 12 to 24 months to compensate for periods without tournaments. From July, the ranking will be calculated again over the past 52 weeks.

Crowdfunding for padel
Faced with the growing demand for a second padel court, the TC Montanay, in Val-de-Saône, has decided to launch crowdfunding with its members to contribute to this new project. A great initiative that brought the whole club together to help the development of padel.

Young people in the spotlight
The Bourgogne-Franche-Comté competition, with the support of the Mission Padel, organized two youth gatherings in the clubs Spoon Center Thise and Nevers. The chance to scout and form the first young teams that will represent the league in the next interleague championships.

Discovery operation
The Beach and Padel Commission of the Departmental Committee of Charente-Maritime organized an open day on Saturday, May 7, 2022. The public could thus discover padel in the clubs of Ars-en-Ré, Rochefort, Saujon, Saint-Jean-d’Angély , La Tremblade and Fouras. Given the great enthusiasm, the committee plans to renew this initiative in 2023.

A competition center in Le Havre
The inauguration took place on 21 May. Although they have been open for practice since December 3, 2021, the three padel courts are part of the development project for this new discipline, the training of professional teachers and the promotion of events and departmental, regional and national.

The “par 3” smash
It consists of bouncing the ball on the back glass to make it come out on one side. Technically, it’s a topspin smash that resembles a serve for a tennis kick. Only perform if you are sure to get the ball out to avoid giving your opponents a chance to counterattack!
