The Saint-Claude gymnastics centre is equipped with three sets of men’s gymnastics apparatus in an 800 sq. m area. The equipment is perfect for gymnasts preparing to compete individually or in a team. The facility is looked after and maintained by a team of specialists. The rhythmic gymnastics area has a specific floor exercise area with clearance height of 12 metres over 600 sq. m. Other available equipment includes a foam pit, mobile apparatus, landing mats, springboards, a fast track and a sound system.
The centre also has a video room for analysing sequences in detail. Our partner and expert in this field, the university of Franche-Comté (UPFR), with its Sports Science Department, can provide movement analysis video tools if delegations so desire. In addition, gymnasts preparing for the Games will be able to benefit from the university’s facilities, which offer equipment meeting current IGF standards.
The Saint-Claude gymnastics club, which owns the centre, trains daily at this venue. The centre therefore owns several sets of all the equipment delegations may need to prepare for competitions. It is nationally recognised as a top-level training and coaching centre. It frequently welcomes gymnasts preparing for international competitions, such as the Romanian team.
Near to the city centre, the facility is easy to get to by bus and by car, thanks to a free and secure car park.
