Had a great day out at the SAC yesterday, Imperius Asset Management put on a great event over the weekend. The home team (Standard Athletics Club) won over the Juveniles CC; with the British Embassy side being the runners up. Rumour has it that this is to be an annual event, really looking forward to the 2012 edition.

Any insights about courses within 50km that are both good and reasonable would be appreciated. I plan to be in Paris from 16 September through the end of November and would love to know where are the closest and most reasonable courses that admit members of the public. English speaking would be an advantage, but is not entirely necessary. Have car; will travel.richard

The French athletes will arrive back in Paris at the Gare du Nord at about 17:00; this will be followed by a parade down the Champs Elysées ending at the Place de Concorde - a great way to end a great Games!

Giant screen up at the bit of the "plage" that is in front of the Hotel de Ville - super place to work on your tan, watch the Olympics and hang out.There is a special opening evening tomorrow - starts at 18:30 with the projection of a movie about the French handi-sport basketball team; this is followed by a BMX performance and the projection of photographs taken by the official photographer of the French Taekwondo team. The broadcast of the opening ceremony is set to start at 21:00 - and to end at about midnight: http://ukinfrance.fco.gov.uk/fr/about-us/evenements/olympic-opening-paris-fr

As part of the build-up to the London Olympic games the MCC is sending a team to play France in 2012.The game will be hotly contested – in a previous encounter (1989) the MCC unexpectedly lost to a French team - despite the MCC team including two former test players and 7 county players.Though the actual cricket will be a serious contest, every effort will be made to mirror the turn-of-century ambiance of the original 1900 matchDon't miss:France cricket vs MCCSaturday 16 June 2012At the Chateau de Thoiry For more information : http://francecricket.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/PRESS-BOOK-FRANCE-V-MCC-2012-English.pdf

I'm moving to Paris for a year of internships beginning in July, and need to find out how to get some exercise. In the US, I play a lot of tennis, but it seems like here you have to join a club, is that true? I'd love any suggestions people may have, or am up for just hitting sometime if you like. I'm a 4.0-4.5 USTA player, btw.Also, if you can recommend a gym to use in Paris, would be helpful. My meager intern's salary prohibits anything very expensive, but just not sure where to look. Thanks.Aaron

If anyone is interested in playing football over the weekends during Spring and Summer .... I am not looking for pro level or club football but something amateur. If we can manage to find i don't know how many say 10 , if you pull some of your friends would be great.. People of ages are welcome . I am 27 and haven't played since 5 years so anyone out there who hasn't touched the ball since ages feel free to play ;) Just looking to have fun over the weekends and if you watch football i support Manchester United .... probably could catch up games next season with rivals or supporters since this season is almost coming to an end. If interested we could figure out which park and where .. leave a reply or email at melwyn.s@gmail.com

Bonjour,I'm from Ireland and doing a little research on the style of courses French golfers may have a preference to? And any other factors that influence choice of course.Merci beaucoup.

Hi. I am a 14 year old looking for football in and around the central Paris area. I was wondering if anybody knew a team that did a weekly game or something like that.

I live in SW France but want to take my wife to Paris for a few days in chambre d'hote. Somewhere very quiet, in an older part of the city but central.
