The weekend is off to a strong start for the French delegation as no less than 12 players will be on the slopes of the FIP Rise in Barcelona this Friday.

While some of the best French players will be at PadelShot Caen, for the P2000, others will be in Barcelona, ​​to compete in the first round of the FIP Rise which is being played this weekend.

Ten of them will make their debut in the competition, while Marianne Vandaele and Amélie Detriviere, who won yesterday in the second round of the qualifications (6/4 7/6 victory against Faure / Prieto), will play their third match in three days today. And the French have a chance to play from 09:30 a.m. against the wild-card Mesa (543) / Vazquez (924).

The other girls have more difficult but still affordable draws: the 100% tricolor duos Barsotti / Invernon, Pothier / Soubrie and the Franco-Belgian pair Ginier / Wyckaert will respectively face the pairs Betz (134) / Fernandes (108), Azcoitia (180) / Elliot (236), and Cossio (178) / Santamaria (228).

Among the boys, Julien Seurin and Adrien Maigret have the worst possible draw: they face seeded 1 Perino (44) / Garcia (80). Complicated match also for Manu Vives and his partner Dorta Diaz who face the 6 seed Mena (83) / Marques (140). It will be more playable for Thomas Vanbauce and Maxime Joris against Tasa Van Beek (186) / Moragues (347).
