At the start of 2022, 9 groups, three girls and 6 males, are defending the colours of Tennis des Deux-Rives. If the 5 youth groups start this weekend, the 4 senior groups have already performed and received a number of matches.
Honor to the girls, who’ve already certified for the semi-finals of the Max-Espiaut Women’s Challenge after ending in second place of their pool. They will play this semi-final in Aucamville on February 6. On the different hand, in the Codep Winter Challenge, the girls’s workforce is not going to be certified for the ultimate part. We should particularly deplore the critical harm of Sarah Ledru who will probably be drastically missed for the weeks to return.
As for the males concerned in the Codep winter problem, we should spotlight the two victories of workforce 2, obtained in Montbeton then at dwelling in opposition to Nègrepelisse. In this workforce, the younger Mattéo Maréchal received all his matches, his two singles and a double related to Kevin Blaret. Congratulations to him and his teammates who can hope for qualification for the ultimate part. Team 1, with a victory in opposition to Labastide-Saint-Pierre and a defeat at Montech, stays in the race for qualification.
A busy schedule for the subsequent 5 months
Last year at the identical time, all winter competitions had been canceled and people of spring had been canceled one after the different. This year, we’re not speaking about cancellation however somewhat about renewal, with the hope that the well being scenario will enhance.
Under these circumstances, the exercise program of the Tennis des Deux-Rives returns to a traditional degree. In February and March, place for younger individuals with the 5 groups talked about above who will play group matches with the hope of qualifying for the ultimate levels. On March 6, it is going to be the finals of the Max-Espiaut Women’s Challenge, hoping that the Valenciennes will probably be half of it.
From March 13, place in the Occitanie championship for senior girls’ and males’s groups by which 6 groups are concerned.
Like the pre-Covid years, the membership plans to carry two particular person tournaments. From April 22 to May 1, the National “Tennis Cup” qualifying match for the nationwide finals will happen in Cap-d’Agde. In June, the return of the Valencian fortnight, simply after the Roland Garros fortnight… Finally, at all times if the sanitary circumstances permit it, the Tennis des Deux-Rives will provide leisure all through the semester with, in June, the Tennis Festival which is able to make its massive comeback after a two-year hiatus.
It’s apparent, the 4 courts on the route des Charretiers and the two in Golfech will probably be very busy in the weeks to return.
