Marlot and Boissé unfortunately failed to capitalize on their 11 break opportunities, while Huete and Ayora converted 2 out of 9. This resulted in a victory for the Casa team Padel on the score of 6/1 7/6.

The last meeting no longer really had any stakes since the title was already acquired for Casa Padel, who had won 2 matches out of 3. Without pressure, Jonathan Le Gall (1500) and Nacer Benzekri (301) entered the court to face Maxime Forcin (11) and Benoît Chauvet (393). It was an honorary victory for PadelShot Saint-Étienne: 6/0 6/0.


A tournament worth 1000 points

Casa players Padel carried out a great operation by winning the cup.

Each player who participated in at least one match during these championships will be able to benefit from these points.

The one who particularly benefits from this situation is Cyril Hanouna. The current 110th French player was part of the Casa team Padel. Even if he was not fielded in Sunday's finals, his participation in Saturday's matches will allow him to add the precious 1000 points to his ranking. This is an excellent opportunity for the presenter who will reach the French Top 100 before the end of the year. Today it is a certainty.
