From 14 to 16 in May, more than twenty teams met at Tennis Club Marseille - padel (TCM Padel) for the first men 's tournament of the season at the club.

The first day was meant for the group matches to allow the greatest number to chained several matches and to leave 3 qualified come. The goal for these qualified 3s: Switch to the main board and compete against the seeded ones.

In the final table, no fuss: Direct elimination! It will take the pairs that start their first round, be right there.

And ... no surprise in 1 / 8 finals where the hierarchy is respected.

It will be necessary to wait for the 1 / 4 to see surprises including the elimination of the very experienced pair Frandjian / Cayla against Barrot / Ségati in which Lucas made his Padel debut well "drivé" by Mathieu ... The tournament was held in a very good atmosphere interspersed with some parts of "mollky" and petanque (we are still in Marseille !!).

The final between Gilles / Grandmont and Schaeffer / Cellai. But the game was quickly interrupted at 3 everywhere in the first set with the injury of Julien Cellai whose knee had again betrayed him ... really a shame because the match was announced bitter!

The Marseillaise Team

[box type = ”info”] Note the feat that the Souid / Goubault pair could have achieved in the semi-final against Cellei / Scheiffer. In the first set Souid / Goubault leads the way with the break in advance, but they are caught up at the end of the first set and finally lose it 7/6. In the second set, Cellei / Scheiffer managed to keep a break in advance but not without difficulty and won 6/3. [/ Box]
