We know well Marianne Vandaele for her position as head of development padel women at the FFT. A position that she has held with fervor and dedication since january-february 2022. Always present at big events and traveling from club to club to discover the padel Women's, she was omnipresent on the stage of padel French.

Figure of padel French and feminine

As we know, the padel is a discipline that is spreading at great speed in France but which is still struggling to completely seduce the players. Only 18% of licensees are women, a reality that the FFT is trying to change. This involves in particular the actions carried out by Marianne.

But Marianne Vandaele is also a champion of padel. On the French circuit since over 7 years, she occupied the 3e ranking place and played under the colors of the French team at 3 times. It's also a bronze medal during the European Championships in Portugal in 2017!


An adventure in Spain

See you soon 33, Marianne Vandaele has just announced it, she launches on the professional circuit, internationally. A daring bet for a player who is already over thirty. This does not slow her down however sinceshe will fly, in a few days, to Barcelona, where she will leave her suitcases and her pala.

As she announced, she focused on international tournaments, notably on the FIP circuit. In the program : collective and individual training, physical training and mental support. All this, to be ready to tame the padel World.

Keeping your commitments in France

Despite her decision, Marianne Vandaele still wanted to reassure: she will keep her position within the FFT and continue to promote the development of padel female. It remains to be seen how she will manage this new activity with her role in the federation.

In addition to international tournaments, the Toulouse also added thatshe would not miss deadlines in France. French Championship, P2000, Marianne Vandeale will normally be present during these tournaments in France!

We are therefore likely to hear a lot about the Frenchwoman quickly if she begins the FIP circuit soon. The latter is still looking for additional sponsors, to help her fully experience this new adventure that awaits her!
