On the night of February 6, 2022, the Auray tennis club (Morbihan) suffered a major fire. The infrastructures were destroyed, the associative life undermined. The club had to renounce the fault of the organization of the youth tournament, the Open Super 12, recognized at the international level. Since that date, many works have taken place so that the sporting activity is reborn.

The municipality is a civil party

The alleged perpetrator must be compared on Wednesday September 28, 2022, before the Lorient Criminal Court. He is a 23-year-old Alréen, outside the club, then placed under judicial supervision. It is necessary for the destruction of the property of others by means dangerous to persons. He will also have to answer for the theft by breaking into a dwelling or a place of warehouse.

This Wednesday, September 21, in a council meeting, the municipality has acted to file a civil action and will be advised by a lawyer during the hearing.
