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 Paralympic 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, as well as a first aid and recovery area and six changing rooms with showers. All the equipment can be adjusted according to needs and is accessible to athletes with disabilities.
The complex 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.
One of Besançon’s main priorities is to promote parasports disciplines, and as part of that effort, it has been organising the only event of its kind in France, the Raid Handi-Forts adventure race, since 2008. The parasports project has grown by encouraging sports clubs to set up a parasport section and making sports facilities accessible to people with disabilities. Thanks to all this work, Besançon received the 2016 Parasport City award.
