Franck Binisti - How did the padel click at AS TENNIS LUCOIS?
Valérie Schneller - Our referee of the tennis tournament Lucois (Edgar Mus) who is president of the Tennis Club of Roquette sur Siagne put us on the padel track.
We know that the padel in his club is working well and that he also aims to put other padel pitches. (The Padel Club is managed by one of the best French padel players: Patrick Fouquet)
We had space to welcome this new sport and the town hall granted us this space. But it is the AS that financed the facilities. We hope this sport will work well because we have development projects if that's the case.
FB - Do you want to put more padel pitches? Already?
VS - We can see that this sport is developing everywhere in France. Tennis players already have some padel hand. And others who do not necessarily come from tennis can more easily have fun. We have just inaugurated our center (Club inaugurated the 9 April) and things are set up with our partner Concasport with which we could rework for the extension of this club.
We indeed have space to put at least 1 extra ground. As part of a global sports project, an additional padel field could see the light of day by 2 years ago.
We will see if the padel takes well in our club.
We have 130 members at the club, and there will certainly be more people for the sunny days and probably some new heads and more.
FB - What is the price for playing?
Cost per year to play padel: 80 € for tennis licensees at AS and 120 € for padel licensees only. It is a very attractive price. The goal is to have as many players as possible to show that this sport deserves to have more than one pitch in our club. Appointment in 1 or 2 years to see if the bet is won.
