The city of Granville is known for the vitality of its sporting life and the quality of its sports facilities. Its coastal location, in the bay of Mont St Michel, provides for a very wide range of sports and nautical activities. Located less than 3 hours 15 minutes from Paris by train or car and 1 hour from Rennes and Caen airports, the Cité des Sports complex offers up to date facilities, accessible to all. The complex comprises three gymnasiums, a Dojo, weight room, body expression and relaxation room, and a boxing gym. In addition, there are additional spaces comprising two meeting rooms, a team leader’s or coach's office, numerous changing rooms, massage rooms and storage spaces. The sports facility is functional and accessible to all audiences, with all the necessary equipment to be an ideal centre for Olympic or Paralympic preparation. https://www.ville-granville.fr/
The Cité des Sports is located in the heart of town, adjoining the new aquatic centre with its hammam, sauna and wellness area. Located just 300 meters from the sea and the hospital, the centre is fifteen minutes walk from the town centre, hotel facilities, and the thalassotherapy centre.
A part of the complex is available for private hire with entrances reserved for delegates. It can also provide space for on-site catering.
The Cité des Sport’s main strength is its ability to provide for delegations’ various needs in a single location, with a host of facilities: Well-equipped gym, weight room, locker rooms, massage rooms, staffroom, meeting room with video projector, restaurant area, hammam and sauna.
