A temporary goodbye to the courts Tennis Club Bandol and their exceptional view of the sea, for an all-expenses paid stay a few meters from the boats. It's still not bad!

You imagine yourself sitting there, on the port, sunglasses on your nose, observing professionals from all walks of life hitting the ball. You are installed by the sea, a fan in hand with the song of cicadas as the soundtrack. Frankly, it's not Rolland Garros, but it's just as good there!

padel or paddle?

Oula, we see you coming from there: “They are going to surf at the bowling alley?! ". So, even if we (tourist office) are entirely capable of setting up this kind of project that we would describe as creative, no, we are not going to install a wave machine on our beautiful bowling green. Put away that jersey! We are talking here abouta snowshoe competition and not an aquatic championship! Because if in the minds of many Padel and Paddle, it is the same thing, the reality is completely different.

padel is a sport that can be compared to tennis with the difference that it necessarily takes place in doubles, on a smaller and, above all, closed field. If you have walked our beautiful coastal path, you must have seen these glassy areas along the coast. Indeed, seeing the mayonnaise take with this sport which has become ultrapopular in recent years, the Tennis Club Bandol has installed several courts for the greatest happiness of all.

Paddle, or Stand up Paddle or SUP, is a board sport which can be as good chill mode that tumultuous. To be honest, in Bandol, it is rather the first function that takes precedence. And for good reason, rowing on a sea of ​​oil at sunset has a direct relaxing effect! But you will have understood, it is not this activity that we were talking to you about. That said, if you still want to go paddle boarding, you can rent one at the Nautical Society of Bandol on the Central beach, or on the other side of the port, at Extreme Surfing Club Bandol.
