The City of Geneva offers its inhabitants sports classes throughout summer 2021

For the second consecutive year, the Sports Service is pleased to organise sporting activities for the inhabitants of Geneva, from Monday 5 July to Sunday 12 September. This rich and varied offer, consisting of more than 400 classes in 37 different disciplines, will be divided into three clearly defined programmes open to all: la Canopée, the summer pods and la Pointe de la Jonction with its urban sports.

“Throughout the summer, we will offer free outdoor sporting activities open to everyone,” explains Marie Barbey-Chappuis, Executive Councillor responsible for the Department of Security and Sport. “It is an ideal opportunity to start doing sport again or to discover new disciplines, such as the urban sports organised at la Pointe de la Jonction.” 

All the activities will comply with the health standards in force. These introductory activities, which are 100% free, supplement the sports services organised all year round by the City of Geneva, with its sports schools for young people, adults and senior citizens.

Élément de l'accordéon

Following the success of the first edition, la Canopée will once again set up stall on Quai Gustave-Ador, close to Baby Plage.

Relaxation and well-being

This temporary, open-air space is devoted to relaxation, well-being and sport.

The classes, which are 100% free and open to every generation, are organised in the mornings, from 8.30 a.m. to midday, and the evenings, from 6.30 p.m. to 7.30 p.m., from 5 July to 12 September. In a shaded, green setting with a zen atmosphere, you can discover cross-training, yoga, pilates or zumba.

Family activities

The site also hosts activities for all the family. At the weekend, for example, there will be parent-child yoga classes or “zumba kids” classes. Every Wednesday afternoon, the Eaux-Vives “Ludothèque” will also organise games and activities for children.

Programme and registration

The mandatory registration takes place solely on site via the coach at the beginning of the class. The number of participants per activity will be adapted in line with the health standards.

The summer sports pods supplement this rich programme of sporting activities made available to the public. These classes are organised from 5 July to 22 August in different venues around the City of Geneva.

This free service is aimed at everyone aged 18 and over, adults and senior citizens alike.

All the classes, such as summer running, pushchair gym, pilates, yoga, silent zumba, etc. are supervised by professional coaches who will adapt the exercises to the participants. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that the activities on offer will have different intensities, rated from * (low) to **** (high).
