France didn't like playing against Sweden... In Las Vegas two years ago and in Alicante last year, the French fell in the decisive match against the Swedes. This time, the Blues did not miss their chance of a medal, as was the case at the World Championships in Las Vegas.

The French did not come far from the feat against Spain yesterday, during the semi-final. After a very close meeting, the French team ended up losing 3-2, inevitably harboring some regrets. So today, they were keen to catch up and bring home the bronze medal.

It's done since the Blues won their small final against the Swedish team, winning the first three matches of this opposition, thus ensuring them to win the match!


  • +55 years: Jean-Marc Lagloire / Olivier Launo wins against Per Bornebusch / Mikael Gavelin: 6 / 4 7 / 5.
  • +50 years: Nicolas Kischkewitz / Cédric Carité wins against Jens Alfrost / Rikard Jakobsson: 6 / 4 6 / 2.
  • +45 years: Jean-Michel Pequery / Sébastien Corbelli wins against Henrik Malm / Paul Robinson: 7 / 6 6 / 2.
  • +40 years: Thomas Cazes-Carrere / Thomas Armagnac loses against Klas Johan Ivan Ola / Per Olof: 4/6 6/3 2/6.
  • +35 years: Adrien Maigret / Max Moreau, match not played by the France team, point for Sweden.

For the French who hoped, before this world championship, to position themselves among the five best nations: objective achieved. France is therefore in third place from the podium after having had a very good run in these 2024 Senior Plus Worlds.

The French Men's and Women's team are coming home with two pretty medals, not counting those that can be recovered during the Open, as Maigret / Moreau and Launo / Lagloire have already done.

It was his brother who one day told him to accompany him on a track. padel, since then, Gwenaëlle has never left the court. Except when it comes to going to watch the broadcast of Padel Magazine, World Padel Tour… or Premier Padel…or the French Championships. In short, she is a fan of this sport.
