Tennis du Midi


A true vocation : graduate in Civil Engineering (Génie Civil), Denis Escande is one of the few, if not the only, director of a tennis court construction company to have been in the business since 1978.

At the outset of his career, he contributed to the development of porous concrete courts in France and French overseas territory. His talent having been recognised by an entrepeneur, he played an integral part in the creation of Eurocourt. When Eurocourt was taken over by Group Bouygues, he took over as director of this new enterprise.

It was in 1993 that he took charge of the company “Tennis du Midi”, a small tennis court construction company that would become in a few years a reference point in the PACA region.

These years of experience have made him the expert in the field he is today. For him, attention to detail is of the utmost importance. The unique point of the company is that it focuses on the individual client, which requires a high level of both knowledge and competence.

The management

Our civil engineer organises and supervises the proceedings as a whole. He guarantees the correct processing of the differents stadiums of the construction site and is in relation with both project manager and client.

The Team

THE TEAMThe most modern technology is borne of great tradition.
It is still the artisan’s hand that prepares, tailors, refines and gives life to the most beautiful creations.
To ensure the level of quality of its long-term investment in the field, Tennis du Midi has created its own training centre.
This encourages the most experienced workers to share their expertise with the youngest.
