In the Var, the Tennis Club Lorgues launches in the padel with 2 padel courts.

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

To set up these 2 paddle fields, 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 revive the machine of her club by wanting « propose a new activity ". The obstacle course will begin ...

But first, the President of the club wishes 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 courts without condemning a tennis court.

If building on a tennis court meant that building costs could be reduced, replacing tennis with padel did not necessarily go well with a certain number. Problem, there is not enough room to do otherwise. Jocelyne Géler stands firm and the mayor trusts him by agreeing to finance all the facilities.

« 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.
