You have most likely seen it, the French Tennis Federation proposed a land of padel on court n ° 5 (opposite the Chatrier) during Roland Garros 2021.

Several exhibitions were organized with celebrities (Tony Parker, Cyril Hanouna, Jerome Rothen...), matches with former tennis players (Sergi Bruguera, Daniela Hantuchova, Camille Pin, Arnaud Clément…).

The responsibles padel at the FFT (Arnaud Di Pasquale, Stephane Berrafato), and the president of the FIP Luigi Carraro were also present for this historic event.

Arnaud Di Pasquale also told us than a lot of padel permanent will be installed from September at Roland-Garros.

Children were also introduced to padel through workshops led by Wendy Barsotti and Simon Boissé.
