In Spain, everyone plays padel. Spanish players have their own clubs or franchises. The list will never be complete. But it's not just them. The proof in image:

We could not finish this article without talking about Jerome Golmard, extraordinary tennis player, certainly one of the most talented of his generation, but also padel player for almost 10 years, who also played 5 seasons on the side Nicolas Bourdarel. This pair will repeatedly hit the French 10 top between 2006 and 2011 and will even manage to reach the quarter-finals of the Aix-en-Provence Open. We hope to see this pair on the field as quickly as possible.

He is currently fighting a real fight of a different nature and we are sending him all our support.
