Montboucons Sports Hall

The Montboucons sports hall, with its playing surface area of 1,056 sq. m and stand with seating for 928 spectators, is a favourite training spot for numerous top-level athletes.

The Montboucons venue is designed for athletes who enjoy high-quality sports facilities and with plenty of space to train. The playing area consists of a wooden sprung floor which meets the standards required by teams preparing for the Games. The hall also has a high-performance lighting system to simulate match conditions for training sessions.

The facility also offers all the services athletes may need: spacious training and strengthening areas, first aids rooms and recovery areas. All the equipment is adjustable according to needs.

The centre is home to two French clubs all year round: the ASCCB, a Division C wheelchair basketball club, and the BesAc, which plays in the National 3rd Division. Matches are organised here every week.

Located at the centre of the Temis district, the complex brings together eight Olympic and Paralympic disciplines in one place, with direct access to accommodation and eating facilities. Near to the city centre, it is easy to get to by bus and by car, thanks to a free and secure single- storey car park with disability access.
