Stéphan RODRIGUEZ, the TCM5 Padel Committee Manager talks about the realization of these padels and the ambition that drives the club.

The TCM5 has been talking about it for a long time. Padel and it's done ...

Indeed, given the strong development of the sport in recent years, we wanted to hang the car. Especially since we have tops French players padel in the club.

The padel club is on the site of the Aqueducts, since the club has two sites "tennis" in the 5e district of Lyon.

Since last October, we have two illuminated "outdoor" trails. One of the two tracks is in semi-indoor which allows to play all the year.

How does the club work? Can an outside player come to play?

We operate like most clubs with an annual membership feature or with outside players who pay at the 45 minutes session.

Outside, hours of club permanence, we are committed to being present to meet the demand.

Are there going to be important deadlines around the padel soon?

Two important deadlines for the club, although we will give more details a little later:

We will participate in the international fair in Lyon next March with other clubs in the Lyon region to promote discipline in our population.

The organization of a 1000 P7 at 16 July 2017, the TCM5 Padl Open - Babolat. French tops players should come. The first weekend would be dedicated to all players, the second weekend, the seeded will come to try to win the tournament.
