On January 14, in the heart of Palavas-les-Flots at My Center Palavas, Bastien Guy, sports journalist and in training at TFP to become a coach of padel with Emmanuel Tecles in Balma, put on his journalistic hat to cover a regional gathering of padel for children under 14.

This event, which brought together several generations of players (born between 2010 and 2014), offered Bastien a unique opportunity to produce an immersive report. Through various interviews, he was able to capture the essence of this day, highlighting the work of the Occitanie League in detecting and training young talents.

“I felt that focusing on the training of young people in France was of public utility,” explains Bastien, emphasizing the crucial importance of developing this sport from a very young age to ensure its sustainability and expansion in France.
