The French Tennis Federation announced that it wants to incorporate tennis clubs and has been provided with 5 million euros as grants. Each affiliated club can benefit from these grants, if they decide to build a short padel. However, the private sector has been in the market for some time, around 5 years.
Franck Binisti discovers the padel at the Pyramid Club in 2009 in the Paris region. Since then padel is part of his life. You often see him touring France by going to cover the big French paddle events.
