Took part in the first real tour of professional lawn tennis players, along with Suzanne Lenglen and four American players: Mary Browne, Howard Kinsey, Harvey Snodgrass and Vincent Richards. This tour took in venues in the United States and Canada, and also included a stopover in Cuba. It began on Saturday 9 October 1926 in front of 13,000 spectators at Madison Square Garden, New York, and ended on Monday 24 February 1927 in the Rhode Island Auditorium in Providence.
Unusually, given the strict separation between the amateur and professional tours which existed until open tennis began in 1968, Paul Féret was reinstated as an amateur in the late 1920s. He began to take part in amateur tournaments again from then on into the 1950s.
