[box type = ”info”] Your site dedicated to padel only offers the floor to its readers. Jérôme Becasset who will have the chance to benefit soon from Padel Central in Lyon and faithful reader of Padel Magazine, shares with us his passion for this sport through his holidays in Spain at the Natura Resort campsite / spa in Peñiscola, more than 200 km south of Barcelona.

Padel Magazine - Do not worry, despite their recent defeat in the semi-finals of the last WPT, Lima and Mieres did not give up their racket to get on the bike. Vincenzo Nibali, the winner of the Tour de France, did not return to the padel either. Given his way up the passes, faster than me on a moped, he would not need anyone to form a competitive pair. A racket in each hand and send the balls ....
No it is (again!) Only Vincente and me, double champions of camping! Oh oh, it's not nothing! We are two men, sturdy and resistant. And champions of camping! In front of us for this ultimate match at the campsite: A couple, a woman with her husband.
Easy, we thought ...
20 minutes later, we had just taken 6 / 0 by this couple.
So we have 40 minutes left to score a game and avoid the second bicycle wheel ...
It was lucky for this couple, we thought ...
On a burst of pride and concluded with a brilliant shot played with the slice, touching the band of the net and dying at the foot of the fence, we register from the beginning of the second set our first game of the match. We celebrate it soberly and modestly by two turns of land with arms in the air and the shirt on the head screaming our joy. We have the success that we can ...
15 minutes later, having considered that it is always better to have two wheels to ride a bike, we have cashed 6 games again. 6-0 6-1 in 35 minutes. It's clean, it's clear, it's a sheet!
By mutual agreement, we decide that there is enough time to play another set. At least. At this rate we should even be able to play 2 or 3 more.
And suddenly, the magic operates, the returns become winners, our services annoy them finally and our flights are out of reach for our adversaries. The games are linked together like in a dream and we conclude the set of a thunderous smash over the side window. 6-0! Go zou! The spare wheel is for them!
Okay, they were playing from 1h20 before we showed up. And yes, it was indeed their 6th set of the day. But at least the honor is (almost) safe!
In the end, the lesson was stinging but salutary! And above all, oh how profitable!
This sport if not practiced in a mixed way at the highest level, could be very easily. Fineness, precision and touch of the ball usually outweigh the brute force. Proof was made with this couple who put us standing, beer in hand.
Thanks to Angel, champion of his club and Noelia, captain of the women's team of the same club for the thrashing. The padel brought them together and in the image of their couple, their combination of strength and finesse is formidable!
Go now we have all the necessary equipment, tomorrow it will be a small bike ride to maintain the form but promised, we play revenge the day after tomorrow night!
