After a well-deserved vacation, and in order to launch the sports season as it should, the municipality, in partnership with the Villefranchoises associations, is organizing a big sports festival this Saturday in the bastide. Three highlights will be offered: first of all, the pass’sports day (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.), which allows you to discover the different disciplines free of charge (badminton, fencing, table tennis, tennis, judo, karate, gym, football, rugby , athletics, swimming, etc.) offered in Villefranche. The event will be spread over three sites, at the gymnasium, at the Henri Lagarde complex or in the Aqualudis pools (sessions at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.).
At the end of the afternoon, on the Place Notre Dame (7 p.m.), the Villefrancois sportsmen who have distinguished themselves throughout the season will be honoured, before sharing a festive and convivial moment (from 8 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. ) in a bodega spirit with the Bande à Bono, still on the Place. A free evening open to all, offered by several Villefranchois clubs and the municipality, where you can have something to eat and have a good time before hitting a new sporting season with a bang.
> Note that after Guy Lacombe, Shann Vinel (rugby league) has been named sports sponsor of the year 2022.
