“This is the best way to promote the padel. All the people who love sports come here. Enter the Chatrier and see people playing padel, that's the best way to promote it. ”
“This sport, which for us is the best in the world, only needs one thing: the promotion. When people know him, they are always delighted. We therefore need to make it known. ”
France will be strong at the European Championships
