This weekend took place the P500 of the Ecully club. This tournament was an opportunity to gauge the best pairs of Lyon one week before the Auvergne / Rhône-Alpes League Championship which will take place in Esprit Padel from June 30. It was finally the pair Sanchez / Levrat who held their place by winning despite a great fear in the semi-final.

The board was very consistent for a P500 with several pairs ranked in the top French 100. In favorites, the pairs Norman Sanchez / Jean-Yves Levrat and Maxime Boch / Benjamin Faure.

There was no surprise in the quarterfinals even though Taboni / Hugot needed a great tie-break to get rid of Salmon / Faure-Millot. In the semi-finals, Cyril Spanelis and Thibault Perreon were two points behind Sanchez / Levrat but that was not enough since the number-one seed 1 of the tournament managed to reverse the match to win 7 / 6 at the third.

In the other party, Boch / Faure mastered their match and won in two sets (6 / 4 7 / 6). The first two seeds of the tournament ended up in the final of the tournament and it is finally Norman Sanchez and Jean-Yves Levrat who won in the final on the score of 6 / 2 6 / 4. Both players show that they are in full confidence before the important deadlines of the next weeks.

This tournament will have finally kept all its promises with beautiful matches, sun and good humor. Thank you to referee Cyril Spanelis for the great organization and for the photos. The players of Lyon are now meeting this Saturday, June 30 for an extremely tough tournament at Esprit Padel.
