The Occitanie circuit of padel continues from July 5 to 7. Direction Figeac and Place de la Raison. This stage of the French Open of padel 2019 is the 2e stage of the circuit of Occitanie Mutuelle du Rempart after that of last June in Montauban.

A step like no other

Figeac is also a club of padel history in France. We have to go back to 1991 to see the creation of the club padel figeacois. Already at the time a Minister of Sports had expressed his interest in this sport: Frédérique Bredin.

Today, the region has less than 30 licensees from padel, but many more players! There is a culture of padel in Figeac.

So back to one of the historic bastions of padel French: FIGEAC.
