THE ASSOCIATION CINQUIÈME SET
The word of the founders, Louis Kerveillant and Edouard Meunier :
"When we created the Association 5ème set in 2004, our goal was to organize a tennis tournament with both student spirit and professional organization. We wanted to offer to the participants 3 outstandings day to enable them to play to their favorite sport in pleasant ambiance and place.
Thanks to the commitment of a 30-people team and the support of many sponsors, we succeeded to organise the first edition of the KPMG Tennis Master Tour in June 2006. 18 “Grandes Ecoles and universities were represented, 3 days of sport and animation were spend under the sun and a beautiful project that just have to keep growing.
In the name of the whole 5ème Set family, we’d like to thanks all those who are following and trusting us since the beginning. Enjoy the tournament!"
If the ambition of the organizers remained faithful to the founders, the KPMG TMT, evolved a lot: ten years later, it is the biggest European student tennis and one of the student sport reference. Accredited by the FFT and the FFSU, the KPMG TMT gathers 32 teams of student coming from the best schools and universities (French Engineering and Business “Grandes Ecoles”, Polytechnique Lausanne, University of Comillas and Saint-Andrews). Each team composed of 3 boys and 2 girls defends its school colors during the matches.
In the same time takes place the Beach Master Tour (BMT) on the superb Baule’s beach, which is a Beach Volley Tournament between 16 teams of 4 student (2 girls, 2 boys). We are celebrating the 7th edition of the “little brother” of the KPMG TMT.
Both tournaments are almost the same in terms of provisions and conviviality.
On the agenda during 4days : sharing and conviviality values, various animations, commitment, cocktails, tastings, parties … that make this event famous! As the founders wanted it, the members of the association focuses on keeping an ambivalence: luxurious provisions with minimal registration fees. This is the reason why they have been working for one year with the desire to improve the quality of the tournament to satisfy you more each year.
Thank you, participants of the tenth edition, for having written a new chapter of this beautiful story.
