This Saturday 08 April, the TCM5 organized on the site of Aqueducts its first padel tournament open to mixed teams.

The vagaries of the weather had forced the TCM5 "padel" commission to postpone this animation originally scheduled for April 1er. But this Saturday, it is by a summer time that the "aficionados" of this new discipline of racket that is the padel came to exchange balls in all user-friendliness.

Indeed, it was not this time to designate a winner, but to offer 44 players and registered players the opportunity to develop padel community in the 5e district of Lyon. Thus, everyone, beginner or not, has been able to meet new players with whom he can now return to practice this new and fun activity that is the padel.

Note that the mixed paddle tournaments are in full development in France and that they meet a real success.

Starting next Saturday from 10 to 13h, the club of 57 rue des Aqueducs will welcome children who are curious to try the palate. This animation is for members as well as non-members.

Finally, the high-level competition is not far behind, as for the 7 and 8 weekends, then the 14 at the 16 July, the TCM5 embarked on the organization of a P1000, a large-scale event that will bring together the best French players.

Great show in perspective!
