Padel Magazine - Olivier Malaval and Aurélien Rambaud, the padel directors of the Pyramids are currently preparing a tournament that will bring together the best pairs in the Paris region.
Beautiful club located in Port-Marly at 20 minutes from Porte Dauphine (Paris), the 6 best pairs have been selected and they are scary to see:
1 / Let's start with a pair of two left-handers: Franck Boucher and Christophe Yves. 2 left-handers together, it is not common, but we are not surprised when we also know their game. Their specialty: Smasher. Padel players who find themselves across the road are most often tattooed with a padel ball. They are favorites.
2 / Olivier Malaval and Nicolas Houard are certainly the most vicious tournament players. Small balls in the corners, balls with strange effects, woody smashes just behind the net and other shots that are not necessarily in the dictionary are their specialties. It will be patient and tenacious against this pair.
3 / Aurélien Rambaud and Frédéric Bouard form a team not to be taken lightly. Aurélien is the padel teacher of the Pyramids. He is feared by everyone and crossing his path is not necessarily good news. His partner Fred is his secret weapon. A semi-professional player, Fred specializes in surgical strikes. They are to watch.
4 / Thomas Delahaye and Benjamin Meilhoc are competitors. This pair has the ambition to win this tournament and they do not hesitate to say it. Thomas is the team's forward. He has a shot that has already won many games. Benjamin is known for his balls cut in the feet. Benjamin prepares the job for the attacker who just has to finish. They are complete and complementary. They will have to be very careful.
5 / Jorge Alapont and Sebastien Ruiz is almost Spanish 100% pair. Jorge comes from Spain and the paddle is flowing in his blood. On a field, he regales us with his technical gestures. Sebastien Ruiz is an outstanding tactician. Capable in critical moments to return from the most adverse situations. He is armed with a devastating smash. It is a feared pair by all players.
6 / The binisti brothers are victims of their success. The opponents aim to screen balls this pair who has yet made the tour of France by going to play among other tournaments in Aix-en-Provence and Perpignan. The brothers, cornered but not finished. They intend to prove once again that it is King David who defeats the giant Goliath and not the other way around.
