Summer is the period of appointments between friends, holidays, weddings and long evenings around the table. This summer is different because the Covid-19 is always present, be careful.

We must remind you that the Covid-19 has not said its last word. Strains are being recorded across the world, countries and regions are re-defining and of course no one wants that to happen at home.

So please take care of yourself and your neighbor. Padel clubs have reopened, competitions have resumed, bars are back in operation. Don't break everything.

We see on social networks photos of players clapping hands, who share the life of the club without a mask, and even worse, who hug each other for big hugs. Of course, padel is also that, human contact, but could we we do without it for a while ? I think so.

So dear friends, please play padel, participate in the life of your club because they really need it, take part in approved and unapproved tournaments, play singles or doubles, but Protect yourself, wear the mask, keep a safe distance, wash your hands as soon as possible and avoid hugging at any time.

Some parts of the world are suffering from this virus, let's do everything to stop it once and for all.
