The health crisis has redrawn the contours of sports practice. Sport respecting social distancing and being able to be practiced outdoors, the padel has experienced significant development over the past ten months. The departments of the Channel and Finistère are no exception.

La Manche has new followers

Granville and its surroundings should have brand new new courts. Since indoor tennis courts are closed for adult practitioners, the padel has seen renewed attention to make up for the lack. This is particularly the case at Saint-Pair-sur-Mer. Members of the local club referred to the outdoor practice and certainly do not regret this choice: “It's very fun, simpler than tennis, less tiring too, explains Sophie About in the columns of the local daily The Free Channel. We have a good time in mixed doubles even if we have to cover ourselves well with the cold at the moment ”.

New land in Brittany

In Finistère, between Lorient and Concarneau, Quimperlé is also taken by the frenzy padel. As of December 2018, a restructuring project for the Kerbertrand tennis complex had been voted. “The restructuring of the complex has become an investment priority in order to adapt this equipment to high-level practice and to an activity in continuous growth with the establishment of the sports studies sector”, Mayor Michaël Quernez declared.

A decision passed unanimously therefore feeds important local issues. Designed by an agency in Quimper, this remodeling involves the demolition of covered courses to develop indoor tennis courts and padel as well as bleachers. This great innovation has a cost: 1,98M € excluding taxes and options.

Brittany offers an attractive offer for the practice of padel, as in the Côtes d'Armor, at Lannion, and in Ille-et-Vilaine, at Rennes and Chateaubriand.
