Like last year it was an international tournament with competitors from several European countries (Bulgaria, France, Germany, Sweden and Russia, but no Swiss players?) Saturday ? Doubles Net ? classic side-out scoring 10 teams competed in 2 pools with top 3 making to the next round. In 1/4-finals Quentin Isackson (RNH) and Guillaume Degat (Nantes) beat seed 4 ?
