Sports classes for every age

More than 70 classes are organised by the City of Geneva. They are run throughout the year by trained instructors.

Encouraging sport among young people

It is important to encourage people to practise sport from a very early age.

Fit at any age

Intended for the over 55s, classes for senior citizens offer the possibility of practising numerous physical activities. Sports camps for senior citizens are also available at very reasonable prices. In short, it’s easy to keep fit at any age.

Sports infrastructures

Numerous sports facilities allow every individual to practise their chosen discipline.
