Montboucons Sports Centre

The dojo in the Montboucons sports centre offers a contest space of up to 1,200 sq. m, which includes outer safety areas.

All the judo mats in the dojo meet IJF standards to ensure all the fighters can prepare under the same conditions as those at the Olympic Games. The venue also has a stand with 572 seats.

This facility includes a weights room, with all the equipment required for conditioning and strengthening, and six changing rooms with showers. It also has a video analysis room for mentally preparing athletes.

As the dojo is one of the French judo federation’s training centres, the federation will be able to ask some of its fighters to act as sparring partners for the fighters from the hosted delegation.

The sports centre is located at the heart of the Temis district, an economic and higher education hub, which offers a peaceful environment that is conducive to sports activities. Near to the city centre, it is easy to get to by bus and by car, thanks to a free and secure car park.
