Babolat, partner of the All In Group since 2021, once again joins forces with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Thierry Ascione and their new complex on the OL Vallée site in Décines. The Lyon-Décines "All In Country Club" was inaugurated on Wednesday September 6 in the presence of Éric Babolat, CEO of the eponymous group.

Already an official partner of the All In Group's other structures (Academy de Villeneuve-Loubet, Country Club de Grasse, All In Padel de Décines et Villefranche-sur-Saône) and their tournaments (ATP 250 de Lyon, ATP Challenger de Saint-Tropez et Villeneuve-Loubet), Babolat is now naturally associated with the new "All In Country Club" based just a few kilometers from the Lyon-based company's headquarters.

The Academy trains up-and-coming talents and coaches professional players on several campuses in France, including Lyon-Décines and Villeneuve-Loubet on the Côte d'Azur, but also caters for club players, both competitive and recreational, in tennis and padel.

Eric Babolat, President of the Lyon-based company: "At Babolat, being as close as possible to the game and to tennis and padel players to offer them the best possible equipment is our raison d'être. With our partnership with the All In Country Club in Décines, we have the opportunity to offer tennis and padel enthusiasts an exceptional playing experience in an incredible setting. It's also a great opportunity to advance our brand by observing, close to our Lyon base, the various tennis and padel players, beginners and experienced club players, as well as future champions."

The Lyon-Décines Country Club offers an impressive range of facilities, including 12 outdoor hard and clay tennis courts and 8 indoor courts, a 1,500-seat center court and 8 padel courts (3 indoor and 4 outdoor). The full range of Babolat rackets, balls, strings, luggage, shoes, textiles and accessories are also available in the ALL IN STORE, a 200m2 boutique on site.

Babolat, with almost 150 years' experience in racquet sports, works closely with the All In group, supplying rackets, strings, balls and luggage to various sites, and equipping all trainers, with the exception of clothing and footwear.

Babolat thus continues its partnership with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, through the development of the academy, to pass on his passion for tennis to racquet sports enthusiasts.
