It is in Nice, in the property of Jean-Noël Grinda that the comedian was able to practice his new favorite sport, the padel.

And who better in France than one of the pioneers of this sport to hit the ball?!

If you follow the padel French for several years, you must have heard of Jean Noël-Grinda. This former tennis champion who participated in the Davis Cup is possibly the first tricolor to have practiced this sport. Indeed, as his son Nallé tells it, the Grinda family has witnessed the beginnings of padel in Acapulco in the 70s!

Aged 85 today, the former French international takes advantage of his personal 20×10 to continue hitting the ball with his friends. And among them, a certain Gad Elmaleh with whom he played a game.

The native of Casablanca is crazy about padel and don't miss an opportunity to play. Could we see him soon share the track with his friend Cyril Hanouna?
