Le Bullpadel Show 06 certainly offered to Juan-les-Pins the most beautiful spectacle of padel French and certainly one of the most beautiful in the world. We had to be able to bear this name, and the mission was largely successful.

And when we talk about a show, we are not talking about a tournament or a competition: we are talking about a show in the literal sense of the term with the 2 troops: the Pirès troupe and the Giuly troupe.

2 days of laughter

For two days, the Bullpadel Show 06 has succeeded in bringing together professionals, comedians and former high-level athletes in a format that will be a landmark and which, we hope, will be repeated in 2025.

What to say about the site: La Pinède obviously allowed the event to be a show in its own right. At the edge of the beach, on a site laid out to perfection, with a very playful audience and actors who played the game to the fullest, the recipe was just perfect, and we almost forget the winners of the competition, namely the team Pirès composed of Éric Abidal, Charlotte Soubrié, Vincent Clerc, Redouane Bougheraba, Kev Adams, Federico Chingotto and Juan Tello, facing Team Giuly composed of Alizé Cornet, Florent Sinama Pongolle, Cartman, Jarry, Paquito Navarro and Martin Di Nenno.

It should be noted in passing that the title of MVP, very symbolic, was given to Alizé Cornet, now retired from tennis and a young writer who we hope to see more and more on the tennis courts. padel.

A show in 2 acts

The competition is very secondary here, even if we see former high-level athletes giving of themselves to bring home a point for their team. Because yes, the Bullpadel Show 06 was a two-act show: Friday and Saturday.

The show on the track sometimes looked like a succession of sketches with an XXL set and as master of ceremonies: Redouane Bougheraba. Racket in hand, he was able to perfectly forget his few “slight little shortcomings” in the padel for the most picky, thanks to a breathtaking humor and unfailing generosity. On or off the track, the Franco-Algerian actor and humorist succeeded, with the entire troupe, in transforming the track into a theater stage.

Kev Adams will not be disoriented, he who teamed up with Redouane. Indeed, in a few days, we will find him on this same stage in Juan-les-Pins since he will present the Festival L'humour à la Plage on July 4 and 5. The comedian also performed the show with racket in hand and with dexterity! Concentrated, he was able to confirm his few hours on the clock: and we validate! In a way, the Bullpadel Show is a perfect launching pad for what will follow in a few days.

The faithful among the faithful padel, with Cartman and the incorrigible Jarry, were key players with a second act that left its mark on the event and the audience!

A perfect staging

Between points and matches, there was little time to breathe. The show continued without any break, with artists coming for the occasion, which also contributed to the success of the Bullpadel Show.

The actors put on the show and all contributed, but what about the staging? After the disappointment of not having managed to maintain the Open du World Padel Tour in Toulouse, Robin Haziza managed to come back in a certain way even stronger with an original concept, outside the time of padel.

We were even able to see, for the most nostalgic, the old associations which had been so followed and appreciated by fans of padel : Paquito Navarro/Martin Di Nenno and Fede Chingotto/Juan Tello.

Helped by a transfer window padel very active, we found four players who could also breathe and leave the professional microcosm for two days, transforming themselves into showmen and bringing the necessary touch to end the two days with real padel. We will conclude that the two matches between the 4 galacticos end in a match all. But all this remains very symbolic, obviously.

Finally, this event raised €5000 for the Sourire et Partage association.

To conclude, we will end with the words of Robin: “See you in 2025”!
