Sunday 26 July the League of Pays de Loire organized the regional phase padel qualifying the championship of France.

Sport in Park was obviously the club chosen by the league to host this stage. Considered as the 1ages structure to embark on the full indoor padel in France (September 2012) in Saint Berthevin on the outskirts of Laval, the event was organized by Frédérick Fouchard, development advisor (FFT) and Simon Boissé, the future sports manager of the structure in charge padel / squash / badminton.

The 1 no.

14 men's teams and 2 women's teams were reunited to fight.

Constituted from tennis rankings, the men's table gave rise to beautiful encounters in perspective ...

  1. Vincent Stouff (N ° 80) and Simon Blondin (0) Head No. 1
  2. Yann Renault (-2 / 6) and Stephen Benoît Kerveillant (5 / 6) N ° 2
  3. Mathieu Desbois (2 / 6) and Charles Desbois (4 / 6) N ° 3
  4. Simon Boissé (3 / 6) and Samuel Devrand (5 / 6) N ° 4

Many thought that the 1 numbers would easily win this final phase. Why ? Because with a Vincent Stouf (No. 80 French) associated with Simon Blondin (0), on paper it was heavy.

Behind the three seeded, there was therefore the no. 4, already known for their padelistic fresco, Simon Boissé and Samuel Devrand. They were on their land and logically did not fail, leaving 9 games on 4 games to their opponents.

Note the good performance of the No. 11 seed, Vivien Théolier and José Luis Maruenda Sanchez who reached the final.

Many were present for the 1 era on a padel field revealing some revelations for some.

Mayenne well represented

In the women's draw, Séverine Huet and Mallory Preel beat Anne Pascale Brosseron and Katia Duval.

the Mayenne will be represented by 2 pairs in the championship of France and is for the moment like the locomotive of the padel within the Pays de la Loire region.
