Fave / Boutel brings down the TS1

The pair made up of Damien Fave (60) and Gautier Boutel (83) won the final of this P1000, which was disputed this weekend at theAngers Tennis Padel Club, facing the pair Laurent De Barbeyrac (46) and Alexis Coulombeau (81).

The pair De Barbeyrac / Coulombeau seemed well launched, however, having taken over Durieux / Paumard in three sets (2/6 6/3 6/1) in the semi-final. But that was without counting the very good performances of Fave / Boutel, with an already convincing victory in the morning against Legras / Devaux (6/2 7/5)

The Durieux / Paumard pair obtained 3rd place 6/2 6/1 against the Legras / Devaux pair.

Prize money and a large endowment

David Guérois, the tournament manager, talks about this great event:

"It was a nice event. It was able to be set up with the help of our partners (Anjou Granit Import France, Angers Destination Tourist Office, Ligue Pays de La Loire, CUPRA Angers Groupe Boucher, HEAD, Lardesports Angers/Tennis Pro, Padel Magazine, Association La Dalle Angevine, the restaurant/bar La Belle Équipe).”

“Beyond the prize money, it is also €2500 in regional product endowments in a welcome pack that benefited the players.”

“I would like to thank the participants, but also the entire refereeing team (the main JAP2, Fabrice Bernard from ATC Angers, as well as the substitute and assistant JAP2s, in particular Stéphane Chauvel).”

ATC Angers is preparing a big year for us in 2023

The ATC Angers, which today has nearly 350 competitors, will host the ladies' and men's team championships.

A P100 / P250 / P500 tour is also planned this summer with, among others, the Summer Padel Camp.
