Trèbes tennis: a young and dynamic team that makes you want to join it

Early in the morning, at the Tennis club of Trèbes, it was the end of the year animation for the young graduates. Late morning, place at the general assembly in the presence of the mayor, Éric Menassi and Nicolas Miguel, president of the committee of Aude.

Karine Gonzalez, president of the club since the end of 2019, has known a lot of turbulence. The latest being the compulsory vaccination pass providing for a complicated start to the year even if the licensees have been understanding.

The number of employees is up compared to 2021 and their increase should be substantial next year thanks to an innovative idea : the establishment of a sponsorship with very interesting advantages.

During the winter period, the local club may rent the grounds from the Departmental Committee, initially, for adult matches. Field coverage should be scheduled around 2023. Coach Julien’s hours could be increased.

A good “Open” tournament with 70 registrants and a final at night with great success, despite this damn vaccine pass.

“The year has been complicated but the one ahead will be better”, says Karine with a big smile. The projects are legion, the management team is close-knit, motivated and hard-working… The free games for the little ones will be renewed and the mixed 3rd division team will be back next season. “We did as we could with the Covid. The team had the pleasure of going to the Open Sud de France in Montpellier during the semi-finals… An excellent moment… Today, Roland Garros remains a bit too expensive !” After thanking the licensees, the parents, the sponsors, the president gave the floor to Nicolas Miguel. The president of the departmental tennis committee speaks of close relations with this management team which has brought “a wind of youth and freshness at the club. 5 000 licensees, Aude tennis is picking up again just like national tennis”, prospered the latter who assured the club of the support of the committee. Éric Ménassi, the mayor, was part of the unfailing support of his municipal team for the local associative fabric. The wealth of a city is also measured by the number of its associations : in this case more than 80 associations. Referring more particularly to the tennis club, the mayor praised the dynamism of the management team in a context that is at the very least delicate for all the associations. He also returned to the investments made by the city, in particular the repair of the courts.

This team makes you want to join it, it welcomes new members of the office : Gaëlle, Vincent, Olivier, those who will support him : Julie, Julien, Bruno, Herman, Alexiane, Karine, still president, and of course coach Julien Dhooge.
