Geneva is a privileged place for anyone keen to do sport. The municipal administration provides the public with more than 80 facilities with a view to encouraging them to practise a sporting activity.
Selon la loi cantonale en vigueur, il est interdit de fumer dans les lieux publics ou accessibles au public, tant à l'extérieur qu'à l'intérieur. Tous les terrains sportifs (centres sportifs, stades, piscines, pataugeoires, patinoires, salles de sport, etc), y compris les aires réservées aux spectateurs et spectatrices, sont concernés par cette interdiction.
The City of Geneva wants to encourage people of every age to do sport: young people, adults and senior citizens. Sport is a vector of numerous positive values. It helps migrants meet people and become an integral part of a multicultural city such as Geneva.
