Franck Binisti: I discovered the padel at the Pyramides (78) 5 or 6 years ago. But serious health issues kept me out of the sport for a few years. The padel saved me since failing to resume tennis and squash, I was able to do sport again by playing padel. My many trips to Spain have allowed me to learn a lot about this sport. I trained, materialized moreover by a monitor of the Madrid federation, and it is through these trips that I fell in love with this sport. I still play at the Pyramides club. But the weather doesn't allow us to play for a good part of the year. So, we go to the south of France or Spain. Our goal: to develop this sport in France.
