Colombes is a city of 90,000 inhabitants located in north-west of Paris and whose identity is intimately linked to the Olympic Games. Included within a developing district with new hotels, the new sports arena gymnasium will reflect the ambitions of the city, which has always put and given priorities to sport. Supported by a women's handball team playing at the national level, the complex will answer the demands to provide an adapted environment to the highest performance for Olympic and Paralympic indoor sports disciplines. In addition to a room classified by the federal authorities, the fitting will also benefit from additional equipment that can be converted and adapted to work physical preparation and allow the staff to organise training sessions. Located in front of the stadium Yves du Manoir, which will be used to host the hockey trials during the Games, one hundred years after hosting the 1924 games, this future high sport place will be easily accessible from the main roads, highways and means of transport that will lead to the main Olympic sites, including the village of the athletes but also Paris and its many tourist attractions. Colombes has also a lot of facilities of various sizes (outdoor and indoor tennis courts, 44X22 gymnasiums, boxing hall, Dojo etc...) that can welcome a great variety of sports and activities.
The site is located near the A86 North in Colombes, which can lead to various sport sites selected for the Olympic Games as well as many important roads in the Paris region.
The site will be completely brand new (opening planned for the end of 2023).
The site includes two handball rooms as well as a multi-purpose room that can be transformed into a recovery or weight training room, if necessary. The equipment is entirely adapted to disabled sports practices. Hotels with restaurants are very close to the complex.
For complementary sport activities, the site is close (between 1 and 3 kms) to various sports sites which belong to Colombes such as: a swimming pool, tennis courts, stadiums, a small weight room, as well as the Lagravère park on the banks of the Seine.
The 1924 Olympic Games were held in Colombes on the site of the Yves du Manoir stadium located 500 metres from the equipment. In 2024, the site of the Yves du Manoir stadium will be the site of the Hockey.
