And yes, tomorrow is Mardi Gras. The opportunity to party and forget who you are for a few hours. Go to your clubs, they surely have something planned.

In France we are perhaps not as keen on carnival as in Spain. It is however an excellent tradition: dressing up, partying, putting yourself in the shoes of a person or a character for a few hours is always beneficial for good relations between friends.

Friends, friendliness, that's exactly the watchword of padel clubs. So tomorrow, Tuesday is D-Day to put on your Elvis, fireman, clown or whatever costume and hit the ball in your padel club. Even if no activity is offered, dare, that's also padel.
