For its fourth season, the Road Tour Sports for All stopped in the town of Maignelay-Montigny on Tuesday April 23. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the committee truck stopped at the gymnasium and offered a variety of activities for young and old alike. On site, the workshops had to be split because there were so many residents.

More than a hundred of them tried out the workshops offered by the French Federation of Sports for All in good weather. In total, six facilitators were present to lead zumba sessions, a motor course, a speedball workshop, a cross training workshop, a tchoukball workshop and an awareness course for sensory, visual and hearing disabilities.

Promoting sport through the Road Tour

Until Sunday April 28, the Road Tour stopped in Hauts-de-France, Maignelay-Montigny being the last stop in Oise. This year, the federation wanted to increase its presence in rural areas. “We didn’t go to the big cities like we usually do. explains Anne-Lise Delcelier, regional technical advisor for the French Federation of Sports for All of Hauts-de-France. The goal was to go to areas where residents have less access to sport and to encourage parent-child practice there.”

With this day of discovery, the team, which notably welcomed the town’s football club and the leisure centers in addition to individuals, hopes to see residents continue to practice one of the activities to which they have been introduced. “We offer eye-catching activities and others that they can find in the area” confided Anne-Lise Delcelier. To do this, the facilitators did not hesitate to redirect the public to existing clubs.
