From April 19 to May 15, the city of Bayonne has decided to showcase the richness and diversity of women’s sports in its territory through sports, cultural and educational events.

A sports city at its core, the city of Bayonne has placed the development of women’s sports and the enhancement of diversity in the life of Bayonne’s sports clubs at the center of its concerns.
