The city organizes, as every year, a party to honor all sports. It began on September 3 with open doors at the community pool, as well as a volleyball match at the sports center and will continue throughout the month of September. On September 9, an awareness day will be organized by the departmental disabled sports committees of Moselle and Meurthe-et-Moselle. A historian’s conference “14/18: sport comes out of the trenches” will precede an evening of awareness-raising workshops in different disciplines and wheelchair basketball demonstrations.
Forty clubs celebrating
But the highlight of the event will undoubtedly be “the sports festival, in the presence of around forty sports clubs from Mussipontains, at the Bernard-Guy sports center”, points out Henry Lemoine, mayor. Throughout the day of Saturday, September 10, initiations and demonstrations will take place indoors or outdoors. The next day, Sunday September 11, the Bel Air equestrian center will open its doors in the afternoon. This will be followed by the inauguration of the Fitpark (Sunday September 17) and the athletics challenge at Pâquis (Friday September 23). Finally, on Saturday September 24, an international wrestling gala will be played at the sports center from 8 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
Sports on the meridian break
The “midi sports” operation, allowing sports to be practiced during the lunch break, will be renewed for its second year. « It can be tested, free of charge, during the month of September before registering for 70 €/year », specifies Gilles Chotel, responsible for sports within the city. It will offer, every day of the week, free or supervised activities within the confines of the sports centre. Similarly, around thirty sports clubs will offer free access to activities for 3 weeks.
With more than 6,000 licensees and 53 sports clubs, as well as 5 school sports associations, Pont-à-Mousson has not usurped its title of sports town.
Information and information on sports clubs: sheets for each club are available throughout the month of September at the reception of the sports center (avenue Guynemer).
