Hello, I just recently moved to Paris to attend school. Back home I tended to get most of my exercise playing basketball. I am wondering if there are any good outdoor parks to go to play basketball. I have found a court near my apartment, but so far the only people playing that i've seen have been playing not very seriously, which is fine, but not the work out I'm looking for. Does anyone play regularly? Also, are there indoor courts anywhere that don't cost much to use? Thanks, Charlie
Hello from a first-timer. I have to work in Chatou (and live there, in a hotel with zero facilities). I'm desperately in need of confirmation that there is a decent, well-equipped gym in the area. I've googled "gym chatou", but the only outcome is the Novotel Hotel. If anyone knows of any good gyms in the area, I'd appreciate some info. It would probably be useful to be near to my office (which will be EDF), but anything walking distance from there is also great. Many thanks =)
Do you know of any venues where older expat teens can meet? Our 16-year old would like to expand her extracurricular activities and meet new people. She prefers English though speaks French too. Soccer? Kickboxing? Basketball? Theatre? Dancing? Cooking? Thx.
The Carré Senart in Lieusaint in the 77 is offering free initiation into accrorbanche, golf, rollerblading and climbing, several associations taking part too; so if you live in the area, it is a neat way of getting the kids active, out of the rain and letting them have some fun as well As far as I know, this operation ends on Saturday, and the activities take place between 11h00 and 19h00 www.carre-senart.com
