Sport is a positive force for health and well-being, promoting full and healthy lives for town-dwellers who are getting ever keener to relax and do sports in contact with nature.

Designing spaces for outdoor sporting activities

By working with communes, local people and local sports associations, ECT comes up with a collaborative vision of these new spaces for sports and leisure.

ECT is able to finance sports facilities as part of an overall development project.

To optimise these projects, ECT applies the concept of the 'plateau sportif' or sports zone for one or more activities. This could be a multisports area or game court, a street workout zone, an archery range, football pitches, volleyball courts, or even an equestrian centre.
