In the Var, the Tennis Club de Lorgues is embarking on padel with its 2 fields of padel.

It is also the first club in the Var to offer as much. (Ed. the Lucois Sportive Tennis Association already offers 1 padel)

To set up these 2 fields of padel, it took endurance " to make this project a success Explains the investigator of this project, Jocelyne Géler, President of the Lorgues Club.

In 2014 Jocelyne Géler has the ambition to relaunch the machine of her club by wanting " propose a new activity ". The obstacle course will begin ...

But first, the President of the club would like to point out that all the stars were aligned to develop this project. The fact that the padel is part of the same Federation as tennis " is necessarily an advantage. This was one of the triggers ».

But it was not possible to build these 2 padel without condemning a tennis court.

If the fact of building on a tennis court made it possible to limit construction costs, the replacement of tennis by padel does not necessarily go well with a certain number. Problem, there is not enough room to do otherwise. Jocelyne Géler is holding on and the town hall trusts her by agreeing to finance all the installations.

« Our Sagarbe Sports grounds are superb and operational and we hope to be able to develop the activity in the area as soon as possible Concludes the President of the Club de Lorgues.
