In Evry-Courcouronnes, "where it all began", the famous skylight has become mobile


A canvas reproducing exactly the window of 24, rue de Jules-Vallès was installed on Saturday on the forecourt of the town hall. Malik, 10 years old, es

A cross drawn with blue adhesive tape serves as a reference point.

Ball placed on it, Bilal, in full football gear, steps back.

And knock… "It's not the intercom that should be aimed at," Malason laughs gently.

This is the skylight.

This Saturday afternoon, on the forecourt of the town hall of Évry-Courcouronnes, they are dozens of young minors to try their luck.

Objective: slide the ball into the hole of a small window.

The game started less than a year ago at 24, rue Jules Vallès, in the Pyramides district.

Since then, the skylight has become a real symbol, even being included in an Adidas advertisement with PSG striker Lionel Messi.

"We are very proud"

Building on this success, Malason and Souli, two “greats” from the neighborhood, imagined exporting this skylight.

On a canvas about three meters high and nine long was reproduced the wall, the door, the crooked posts, the worn intercom and, of course, the small open skylight.

“We are very proud to have created this mobile skylight,” Malason said at the microphone, before kicking off the game.

Before taking it everywhere in France, we wanted it to be inaugurated here, in Évry, where it all began.


Each participant has the right to three attempts.

For an hour, the shots follow one another but none materialize.

"It's really not easy," breaths, surprised, one of the young people after three consecutive failures.

All the shooters leave empty-handed.

Until Malik arrives.

At 10 years old, this child from the Pyramides district is the first to have scored.

Around him, the spectators remain incredulous.

Before understanding what just happened.

And to applaud him.

“I'm very happy to have succeeded,” he says.

I had already tried my luck in the neighborhood, without success.

There, I concentrated well.

I really aimed.

And I scored.

I think it was mostly luck.

So, I prefer to stop there.


Mayor Stéphane Beaudet tries his luck too

Amine, he pulls each of his shots in a sock.

“I feel more comfortable than in sneakers,” he explains.

Yet none of his shots will have reached the objective.

"Every time, I'm right next door," he annoys.

I'll get there eventually.

Talent will speak eventually.

Mohamed celebrates his 14th birthday this Sunday.

Slipping your ball into the skylight would be a nice gift.

“I have already succeeded at Jules-Vallès, I hope this will also be the case here.

I will try until I get there.


Evry-Courcouronnes, this Saturday.

The mayor, Stéphane Beaudet, tried his luck.

Three shots, three failures.

Encouraged by Malason, a few adults also try their luck. Including Stéphane Beaudet, the mayor (SE) of Évry-Courcouronnes. The chosen one would never have imagined that a simple game would achieve such success. “This idea of ​​making it mobile will allow this animation to be exported everywhere. Right off the bat, Malason and Souli wanted to do something smart that everyone would like to hear. They wanted to be exemplary, even if we know that this has created nuisances for residents. Alas, some wanted to close this window. It was not the solution. With this mobile decor, they can really hit the mark. "

Djibril traveled to Fresnes (Val-de-Marne) to participate in this event.

A few weeks ago, seduced by what he had seen on social networks, he went to 24, rue Jules-Vallès.

“I bet it 7 times out of 10,” he says.

There, I lacked success.

It's the sun's fault, he smiles.

I think this idea of ​​a game is amazing.

This will help give the neighborhoods another image.

I am sure it will work in France and even in other countries.
