The weekend of June 7, 8 and 9 took place at TC Marseille the 3rd southern regional stage of the National League of Padel.

Taking advantage of the international women's tennis tournament, Sandra and Jean Marc DALAIN, the leaders of the padel section of the TCM, have appropriately chosen this date to host their stage of the circuit of the LNP.

The welcome of Sandra and Jean Marc did not fail in its reputation, and the friendly atmosphere did not affect the quality of the parties. The many pairs of the PACA region coming from many horizons (Set Club, St Cyr sur Mer, Cassis, TCM, Padel Marseille, Lyon) were able to test themselves against Perpignan and Toulouse.

All of this resulted in 16 teams competing, 3 pools of 4 teams plus 4 seeds. From the group matches, several games were hooked, in particular the match between Aurélien Grandmont - Jean-loup Chabaud and Charles Dragon - Kevin Rous and the one opposing the pair Laurens Régis - Tolisano Olivier to Remy Beuzeboc - Clément Arico.

Note the big performance of the pair consisting of Olivier CAYLA and Jean Marc DALAIN who reached the semi-finals. All participants were unanimous in declaring Jean Marc as the revelation of the tournament. His progress, his constancy and his combativity have jumped in the eyes of everyone.

The other semi-final opposed Pascal and Alain from Perpignan to Manu and Laurent from Toulouse. Victory in difficulty in 3 sets for Laurent and Manu. But it was a rebounding match because the winners had lost the first set and the second set promised to be very complicated where many were in the audience to think that they would not make it. Pascal and Alain have shown that we should count on them for the next steps.

Under a blazing sun, the pair CARITE / SALES once again showed that the "old" had not lost their superb, beating in a one-way match the pair IMBERT / TECLES.

See you at the next stage of the LNP that will take place in July at the Mas Club in Perpignan.
