It is equipped with 12 competition tables « Cornilleau » labelled ITTF, thus offering  an area of 12 tables in their training version (a space of 10mx5m) and 4 tables in a competition configuraton (16mX9m), all that with high-quality lighting, and a taraflex ground especially designed for high-level competition, certified by the French Federation of Table Tennis The complete area of these facilties is 600 m2. As this hall is windowless, there's no sunlight, removing the discomfort of sunrays : the competitors will not be bothered by the natural light nor by the potential prying looks of passer-bys. All the equipment, certified by the French Federation of Table Tennis, is fitted with changing rooms completely accessible to persons with reduced mobility   The Sports Hall and the Reception hall of Tharabie including a 300m² reception space as well as the 2 meeting rooms will also be made fully available to the athletes for their preparation and recovery. The whole of the equipment is adapted to people with reduced mobility.   Finally the city offers a natural and historical area (with a lake, hiking paths)  and also landmarks ( The Fortified house of Les Allinges, The Fallavier Castle) that offer the possibility of an outdoor cardio-training in exceptionnal surroundings, All that within a few yards away from the training facility.

Special features

The main asset of the Facility and more generally of the city of St Quentin-Fallavier is of course its exceptionnal geographic position.

The city has indeed a strategical position first in terms of transportation :

  • It is 10 minutes away from the St Exupery airport and its TGV station.
  • It is 15 minutes away from the city of Lyon ( the access to the A43 motorway being a mere 5 minutes away)

But also in terms of services :

  • The hospital and functional reeducation centre is 15 minutes away.
  • Hotels are only 10 minutes away.

The other asset is the existence and availability of a sports hall entirely dedicated to table tennis and furbished with high-level equipment.


Finally, the visiting delegation, thanks to the complete access it will be granted to the Reception Hall and Sports Hall, will have all the services (physical activity rooms, meeting rooms, catering area) on a single site.
