Congratulations to the winners of the Open de Long Beach ! The tournament was held on 5 star hotel Long Beach Mauritius’ beach on the weekend of the 13 and 14 October, it was a great success !
Bravo and thank you to the competitors in the Long Beach Beach Tennis Open !
The sun was shining for the two days of the beach tennis competition played in Men’s and Women’s Doubles on the Mauritian resort’s immense beach.
The outsiders took the prize : VADEL and ANTIER played against the French champions in the Round of 16 and won their match. Following this success, they continued to shine until the final where they won the tournament. The u-18 World Champions were eliminated from the competition in the semi final by the DUCHIER JEREMY / HOCHDORFER THOMAS pairing.
No surprises in the Women’s Doubles competition. The pairing from Réunion Island (FR) found themselves in the final. Experience and knowledge conquered youth on this occasion !
Sébastien Rambert, Sport and Leisure Manager at Long Beach hotel commented : “This first tournament was a success ; it will bring more attention to this sport. The Tournament is the second international tournament in Mauritius. Our aim is to make this event a permanent fixture in Mauritius and amplify its impact. Long Beach has positioned itself as a sporty hotel, a Mauritian resort that strives to bring local sport into the spotlight and promote Mauritius on an international level.”
The players were thrilled with the Gala Dinner prepared by the Long Beach chefs for the Prize-giving ceremony. The ceremonies they are used to are generally less festive !
Long Beach would like to thank the MTPA for its involvement as well as City Sport and Phoenix Beverage.
