  • Tennis

    Paris Sports & Outdoors

    At last! We made it. Getting tickets was touch and go. Next time we will have to look into it much earlier and more extensive. I spend a great day at the courts. There is enough to see and do. Getting here on the first day meant we were able to see a dutchie playing. Yeah! She lost but that wasn't due to the audience. You are allowed to bring...

  • Ice Skating

    Paris Sports & Outdoors

    My husband and I just came back from Paris where we ice skated in front of the Hotel Du Ville. This was a marvelous activity. The last day the sun was shining, the ice was good, the children were at school and the music was good. There isn't anything better than skating in front of the Hotel du Ville in Paris. Skating is free if you bring your own...

  • Petanque

    Paris Sports & Outdoors

    For me at least, pétanque seems like the quintessential French pastime, evoking images of groups of ageing men playing on shimmeringly hot days in shady small town squares. Pétanque is a form of boules, and somewhat related to the sport of bowls, except that as it is played on a gravel surface, the balls are thrown rather than rolled. I was...

  • Running - Marathons

    Paris Sports & Outdoors

    From the Jardin des Tuilleries to the Parc du Camps de Mars amidst the Eiffel Tower, Paris offers so many marvelous parks in which to run. Not to mention scenic routes along the banks of the Seine or near it allow you the opportunity to get your cardio in while absorbing the sights and sounds. (The length of the Seine through Paris: 13 km.) You...

  • Volleyball

    Paris Sports & Outdoors

    I have a good tip having used them a while ago. If any volleyball teams (Club, universities teams or students teams), there is a special agency that do very good prices in France and they organize very good tours. ComeOn Sport. they also organise tournaments in France. So, if you play Handball or Volleyball, just get in touch with...

  • Hiking

    Paris Sports & Outdoors

    Paris is a city with more than 2,000 years of history. The ancient city of Lutetia was founded in the era of the 1st to the 6th century. Although Paris is huge the compact city center is easy to get around, and the ideal place to explore on foot. Paris is France, and yet it is a culture unto itself. It was an important city of the ancient Roman...

  • Cycling

    Paris Sports & Outdoors

    A rather amusing day out in the countryside on my moutainbike. So after lots of cycling around the streets or Paris, I decided I needed some fresh air and off-road action. I pulled out my Michelin Map "Environs de Paris" and found a route through Rambouillet forest. There was a trail marked "off-road cycle route". So I took it, but it turned out...

  • Eiffel Tower

    Paris Sports & Outdoors

    Did you know that you can rappel down the Eiffel Tower? Well, this guy was doing it anyway. Some rope. A bunch of those pulley things. A helmet. And, oh yeah, a permit from the authorities would be a good thing too. =)

  • Paris Plage

    Paris Sports & Outdoors

    When in Paris some have asked about a pool, well there are many pools in Paris, and I have been to the famous Josephine Baker by the Seine. However,the one I have used is at Auteuil in the 16éme arrondissement of Paris. Recently I was by there so took a picture for VT ::) You have two pools indoor one is 25 x 15m and the other is 15 x 6 m, it has...

  • Olympics

    Paris Sports & Outdoors

    Paris is going whole hog in its effort to nab the 2012 Summer Olympics. A logo for the event has popped up all over the city, from the National Assembly building to the Big Metal Tower. The plan would involve a lot of existing venues (such as the Stade de France, pictured here, which would be rechristened Olympic Statium) plus the construction of...

  • Tour de France

    “I am afraid I play no outdoor games at all except dominoes. I have sometimes played dominoes outside French cafés.” — Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) Our Sunday in Paris coincided with the entrance of the Tour de France into the capital. We had been warned by our taxi driver from the train station to avoid the Champs Élysées because of pickpockets....

    well when leisure times call for a relaxing time and golf is it, on business this is a must and I did enjoy spending a couple trips here to do it.
