La French Golf Federation issued a press release this morning concerning the assignment of new containment decreed in 16 French departments.
The practice of golf being relatively close to that of padel outdoors in terms of health, this press release suggests that the padel could thus avoid total containment.
Especially since last year, the FFG was often a locomotive for outdoor sport and release of authorization to practice outdoor sport.
The practice of golf remains unchanged in the unconfined departments, until 19 p.m.. We can therefore first imagine, as we told you yesterday, that the clubs of padel outdoor areas that are not confined will therefore gain an hour of padel !
Regarding the 16 confined departments, no official text authorizes for the moment the golf clubs of these departments to open. Despite everything, the French Golf Federation is very optimistic about the practice of golf in these territories:
“We are awaiting a return from the authorities, but given the Prime Minister's declarations allowing the practice of outdoor sport, within the limit of 10 kilometers from home, the clubs located in this reconfinement zone should be able to continue to welcome all audiences. “
If we follow the thinking of the FFG, the clubs of padel outdoors therefore have a good chance of remaining open! This is very good news for our clubs, but who are still waiting to obtain the “GO”. We will keep you informed of progress.
