Associative and Athletic Engagement
Before starting law school, Christophe Cottet-Bretonnier became a second-round tennis player.
At the age of 18, he created and organized with Guillaume Thieulot the « Trophy of Hopes »1 for 2 consecutive years. This tennis-exhibition tournament that lasted for 5 days, led him to engage with notably Yannick Noah, Arnaud Boetsch and even Fabrice Santoro.
The concept of the Trophy of Hopes was later taken over by the American company Proserv. It still exists today under the name " Bridge of Generations "2, an international tournament reserved for 15/16 year olds that takes place every year in Avignon (France, Vaucluse).
This passion for tennis has and never will leave him, either in his career as a lawyer or in his personal associative involvement as Chairman of the Litigation Committee of the Lyon Tennis League (2005 to 2017) or as a member (since 2008) and then Chairman (since 13 April 2018) of the Commission of Agents at the French Tennis Federation3.
On 2, october 2018, Christophe Cottet-Bretonnier is appointed by the Executive Board of the CNOSF (French National Olympic and Sports Committee) member of the Interfederal Agents ' Commission (CIAS).
He is also member of Lagardère Paris Racing.
