Le padel and rugby seem to go well together in Aix-en-Provence. A few minutes before the Provence Rugby – Grenoble match, counting for the 30th day of the second division, the Aixois unveiled a rather surprising training technique.

In a video captured by a supporter, we can see the physical trainer of the Provençal club, racket in hand, sending lobs to Guillaume Piazzoli. The third row thus works on his dexterity on high balls and his receptions of candles.

This strange warm-up bore fruit, since the Blacks largely won against the Isérois (44-20). First at the end of the regular season, they will try to reach the Top 14 during the final stages scheduled for the end of the month.

It was through his father that Auxence discovered the padel, one evening in June 2018. Today, he passionately follows the international circuit and teases the pala in his training club, Toulouse Padel Club. You can also find it on La Feuille de Match and LesViolets.com, two specialist media on Toulouse Football Club.
