World Padel Tour add first French Padel Open to 2022 calendar

Another international tournament has been added to the 2022 World Padel Tour calendar with the announcement of the first-ever French Padel Open.

The beautiful city of Toulouse will host the event, which will feature both the men's and women's circuits. It gives French World Padel Tour fans their first chance to watch the best players in the world in person. The tournament will be held at the Palais des Sports André-Brouat, with a capacity of 4,200 people.

The French Padel Open will take place from June 15-19, in the middle of the season. One of the most requested events, an Open in France is finally here!

The organization of this first edition of the French Padel Open belongs to the T&T Padel agency, founded by Tony Parker (4-time NBA champion), Teddy Riner (3-time Olympic gold medalist) and Robin Haziza (Captain of the French women's team), holders of the rights of the World Padel Tour in France.

Toulouse is located in the south of France, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Known as the Village Rose, the pink city, Toulouse gets this name from the colour of the brick on many of the old buildings. This is accompanied by a real padel culture in the city, which will light up in mid-June when the best players all travel to compete for the French Padel Open title.

 

Tony Parker asserted; "As a padel addict that I am, I am super proud to be able to participate in the growth of padel in France and see the best players in the world in action", and by Robin Haziza, "A dream is coming true, I am very happy to organize such an important event. I live in Barcelona and I hope to see a lot of Spanish fans in Toulouse, which is a beautiful city next to Spain".
