Laura Clergue decided to embark on a new adventure in the padel 2021 . The first Frenchwoman to have participated in the professional circuit of padel, World Padel Tour, decided to move on and return to France with a unique experience.

It is the beginning of a new life for our Frenchwoman who will have made us vibrate for 4 beautiful years.

We relay you his facebook post where you can feel all your emotion.

Because I learned to listen to my instincts ...

I made an important decision for me, difficult to take and just as difficult to announce to you today ...

I decided to put an end to an incredible stage of my life that I spent in Spain, and to come back to my country, to write a whole new chapter, with my family (always in the padel of course)

2020 was my best year ever padel but also a complex year for all which made me aware of my current needs in life. A long month of reflection in France, supported by my family, allowed me to make this decision from the heart.

These four years have been unforgettable. I arrived with hardly a word of Spanish speaking, in a small room with the locals, and my level of padel was weak. I left everything, my work as an engineer, my friends and my family, in my mini car with my whole life in it, guided by a passion. I left with the mad desire to build my life as I see it.

This passion allowed me to discover extraordinary people, new countries, new cultures, new parts of me, as exciting as they are complex. I went through all the emotions, and my Spanish by all the accents over the course of my meetings. I learned there to be gentler and more open in contact with the Spaniards, me the French a little cold when I arrived, I was delighted to open myself to a new world that has brought me so much.

This experience made me grow up but today I want and need something else, I know it deep inside me.

I want to continue my love affair with this sport, in another form. I want to share and make sense of everything I have learned over the past 4 years. I want to make this sport that I love so much better known in my country, while being close to mine. I will share with you my future adventures padel very soon

I have so many people to thank, this montage brings together part of it: these new people who entered my heart and whom I will not forget despite the distance and those who have always been there.

Thanks to Padel to offer me all this and it is not over!

We will certainly find our French, Laura Clergue, on the French circuit. Léa Godallier, his former partner on the World Padel Tour continues the adventure in Spain.
