During the weekend of April 1 to 2, Padel Horizon organized a P500 which was a great success, with the same record number of registrations for a competition in this center!

Competitors of all levels gathered in Sucy-en-Brie for the occasion, leading to sporting and entertaining encounters with 56 teams who competed in front of more than a hundred spectators. Renowned athletes made the trip such as tennis champion Arnaud Clément and seven players ranked in the top 100 nationally, including Jérôme Inzerillo (6th), Yann Auradou (11th) and Manuel Vives (14th).

The qualifying phase had eight pools with a specific objective: to reach the final table where the 24 seeds awaited. Quick exchanges and remarkable shots from the talented players punctuated the competition. The participants put on an exciting show for the audience.

Talented finalists went head-to-head, leaving one last game etched in center history. Jérôme Inzerillo and Romain Sichez won against Baptiste Grodenic and Manuel Vives with a score of 4/6 6/3 6/0, a well-deserved victory!

The event was therefore a great success for the organizers who look forward to hosting similarly exciting tournaments in the future.
