Faced with the growing demand for a second track of padel, TC Montanay, in the Val-de-Saône, has decided to launch crowdfunding with its members to contribute to this new project. A great initiative that brought together the whole club to help develop the padel.

Discovery Operation
The beach & padel of the departmental committee of Charente-Maritime organized an open day on Saturday May 7, 2022.

Given the great enthusiasm, the committee plans to renew this initiative in 2023.

Pro tip

The "par 3" smash
It consists of bouncing the ball on the back glass to make it come out on one side. Technically, it's a topspin smash that's similar to a tennis kick serve. To be performed only if you are sure to get the ball out to avoid giving your opponents a chance to counterattack!
