Le Petit As by Annabel Hristova

February 17, 2022

Les petit as was an incredible experience for me.... I really enjoyed making friends from all around the world and playing against some of the top players out there

The organisation of the tournament couldn't been any better, the venue had everything the players could think off.... it was spectacular!

All Covid checks were in place, we were tested every morning. Then we played our matches, then had lunches and dinners together, which was amazing, competitors on the court, but then friends...

I have played 10 singles matches and won 8 of them, so despite playing the consolation draw, I'm very proud of my game. 

Apart of tennis, my favourite part of the week was the official ceremony on Tuesday, the 25th, all players marched out in groups by nations, holding their flags, it was super fun and entertaining!

I'm so glad, I had the opportunity to play at Tarbes this year, unforgettable experience and memories to last!
