These 25 nations met in Moscow (Russia) for the world championship by mixed teams of beach tennis. On site, the team of France, consisting of Marie-Eve and Mathilde Hoarau, Jeremy Bridge and Captain Raphael Jannel was mounted their matches at the nets in Russia.

Nations were to meet in three games: double ladies, mens, and two mixed doubles. It was for the teams to win the maximum number of matches on a meeting.

The draw designated Greece as the first opponent of France. This was the first meeting and the first French victory with a score of 3-0 in the second round. Then the French had a show of bad luck and had to meet the favorite of the competition team: Italy. Reunion Island’s Mathilde and Marie-Eve Hoarau themselves were “disappointed to have met Italy in the second round, but […] we have a good game against a very strong team."

Nevertheless, the France team emerged victorious from these encounter against Belarus (2-0), against Estonia (3-0), and against San Marino (3-0). The France finished in 9th place overall in the championship teams of beach tennis 2014. These two ambassadors of Reunion Island are “proud to have represented France and Reunion Island through this event." Next steps: tournament grade 1 in Torre del Lago (Italy) and the individual world championship in Cervia (Italy).
