Known for

The Bruno Tarricq Basketball Hall is the head office of the association Elan Béarnais Pau Nord Est which counts around 400 members, girls and boys, and several teams are playing at national level. The sports facility hosts the training sessions of the Elan Béarnais Pau Lacq Orthez Espoirs team, which plays in Elite Jeeps and hosts friendly matches at national level. The Elan Béarnais professional team sometimes uses this facility as a fallback.

It has also hosted the organisation of the French Adapted Sports Basketball Championship, the ISF World Basketball Championship (School) in 2007, the finals of the Pyrénées Atlantiques Cup, and an international U15 men’s and women’s tournament (2000 to 2015).

On certain occasions, it becomes the venue for the Battle hip hop as part of Urban Session (gathering of urban cultures).
