Known for

Inaugurated in 2018, the newly born Jacques ALLAIN complex has not yet had the opportunity to organize events of international scope. It is therefore ready, very beautiful, brand new and is eagerly awaiting an Olympic delegation. It would be for him and for the City of Palaiseau, a well-deserved recognition and a nice nod to his gymnasium Roger Antoine, Palaisien basketball player who wore the jersey of the France team. A young, attractive and dynamic city, Palaiseau carries sporting values high and will be particularly proud to welcome Olympic athletes.
