The history of Croix Catelan
The story begins in 1882, with a group of friends who met regularly to practice their favourite sport: running.
In 1990, the 23 athletic events of the second edition of the modern Olympic Games were all held at Croix Catelan. It was here that the first Olympic champion in the history of French athletics, Michel Théato, won the gold medal.
The Lagardère group obtained the concession of the sports site in 2006. Driven by the sporting spirit, which is an integral part of the site’s history, the group founded the club as we know it today: Lagardère Paris Racing.
A club with fantastic spaces
The sports site, dedicated to tennis, swimming and fitness enthusiasts of all levels, offers its members excellent facilities: two outdoor swimming pools, including an Olympic swimming pool, two padel courts and 45 tennis courts – including the 4 Grand Slam surfaces. Football, volleyball and basketball enthusiasts will also find a wide range of outdoor sports sites to choose from.
