Sport events in the french basque country

You find the whole information at the brochure "L'agenda Culture et loisure" (Terre&Côte Basque).

The Basques are an extremely athletic people. Very unusual are the typical Basque ball games such as Pelota and Cesta Punta, which are often played on the village fronton (similar to a squash court, but with a stone wall and stone floor). Every summer in Saint Jean de Luz there is an international CestaPunta tournament, which also features professionals from Florida.

Rugby is also very important here, many towns (such as Urrugne and Ascain) have a rugby team, but no football team, that's hard to imagine in Germany. Just a few years ago, the rugby teams of Biarritz and Bayonne played in the top league (top 14), this fame is a bit faded, but the enthusiasm in the population and in the amateur and youth sector is still huge.

Enclosed the sporting events. In Bayonne and Biarritz, of course, there is still a great offer. Information is available in the journal "Sortie".
