Le FIP GOLD LYON is confirmed and will take place from October 8 to 13, 2024. At the initiative of the Rhône Métropole de Lyon tennis committee, this event is being prepared. The events agency of Lionel Roux and Benoît Dupré (already organizer of the Sopra Steria Open, ATP Challenger tennis tournament) will be responsible for organizing this tournament.

For the first time, Lyon will host an international competition padel for ladies and gentlemen with a prize money of €50.000.

The qualifications will take place at the start of the week in a club in Lyon which has not yet been chosen by the organizers and will continue from Thursday October 10 to Sunday October 13, 2024 at the Palais des Sports de Gerland in Lyon.

The organizers announce the participation of nearly 60 pairs.

This is the second time that France has organized a FIP GOLD, after the one proposed to Perpignan in 2022. However, the Lyon tournament will add a women's competition, which is a first. And we will find David Matéo, as sports manager of the tournament.

The other good news is the municipality's commitment over a period of three years, thus guaranteeing the holding of the FIP GOLD LYON from 2024 to 2026.
