Basketball, handball, volleyball, rugby… “Le Parisien” has been offering for several weeks and before each weekend an overview of the events not to be missed in Ile-de-France.
The poster: Racing-La Rochelle relocated to Lens
President Lorenzetti's Racing 92 is playing a new European Cup semi-final this Sunday at 4 p.m. against La Rochelle.
A poster at the top that the sky and white club should have organized at home, thanks to its good results in the group stage.
But the Paris La Défense Arena is busy all weekend with concerts by the group Sexion d'Assaut... The club is therefore exceptionally relocating to the Félix-Bollaert stadium in Lens, where there are still plenty of places available.
Racing ❤️💛 welcomes Racing 💙🤍 to Bollaert

The opportunity for a Sunday walk in Hauts-de-France to support Laurent Travers' players in their quest for a 4th European final every two years (after 2016, 2018 and 2020).
“We are very happy to be in Lens, we know that the important thing is also the financial balance of the club with the organization of shows.
Going to the North will also allow us to have other supporters who will come to support the Sky and White ", hopes the manager of Racing, who expects a tight match against a team from La Rochelle strong in its internationals Gérogry Alldritt, Brice Dulin or Jonathan Danty.
"La Rochelle is the logical favourite, it's up to us to defy the odds," says Laurent Travers.
The happy coach: Fred Havas
A gala match to end a historic season!
First in their group at the end of the regular phase, the players of Levallois - who end the season this Saturday in Saint-Dié-des-Vosges - are, since their success in Istres last weekend, guaranteed to finish first. after the playoffs.
A classification which officially opens the doors to the Women's League A, the highest professional level in France.
A first for this club which was still playing in N 2 four years ago.
Our elite LSC Volley team is Elite 2022 champion!
Congratulations to our players, their coach Fred Havas, all the staff and volunteers for this wonderful season!
Thanks to @villelevallois and Madam Mayor @agnes_pottier_dumas for their support!

"It's the 4th year here, it's my 2nd climb and my 2nd title (Editor's note: after the one in N 2), savors Fred Havas, the coach and former French international.
It makes me happier than my title of champion of France with Paris at 35 years old (in 2008).
The density of the competition is incredible, there are 16 teams and 9 have announced that they want to go up.
It is the deserved reward of all our investment.
It's a lot of work, more work and a bit of luck.
I can't wait to discover Ligue A and to do battle with the other teams.
The Levalloisiennes will notably find the Stade Français Paris Saint-Cloud there, the only Ile-de-France club at this level.
After ending her professional career with Stade Français in 2020, former French international Mallory Caleyron-Steux - wife of cyclist Quentin Caleyron - must not regret having answered Fred Havas' call for the playoffs after the injury of his setter.
At 33, she won her first championship title.
She and her partners will receive their trophy on Saturday at the end of the last day.
The outing: “Run my City” and the highlights of Paris
It has become an event eagerly awaited by all runners… and lovers of French culture and heritage.
This Sunday, Paris is hosting the 4th edition of the “Run my City by Salomon” race.
A unique event among all those that take place every weekend.
This race allows its participants - more and more numerous - to cross and discover the emblematic places of the capital.
🎙️ @ATrapenard explains why run #RunMyCity played by Salomon if you still hesitate!
So, on Sunday, come and support the good cause, especially @BSF_Inter!

This year, the runners will - in particular - pass through the doors of the Théâtre Mogador, the Palais Brongniart, the Monnaie de Paris and even the Paradis Latin.
A total of 11 sites will be on the race programme.
Two unusual and unpublished courses are proposed, one of 9 km, the other of 15 km.
It is also possible to compete in the event solo or in a team of up to four riders.
The number: 32
Like the difference in points against Cergy-Pontoise after their quarter-final first leg of the National 1 playoffs last week at home against Lorient.
A defeat, a slap, a real correction (50-82) certainly but which does not really matter before the return match this Friday in Brittany.
Before Act 2 of the duel, the counters are reset between the two teams.
A success, even of a very small point, of the players of President Amara Sy will allow them to snatch a beautiful which will be played on Sunday in the Lorient hall.
The feat is still possible for the Spartans, nickname of the Cergy-Pontoise players.
The Spartans lost for this first round of the 1/4 Final Playoffs.
Our warriors will have to achieve the feat in Lorient on Friday evening to continue this crazy adventure
Thanks to our public who will have pushed their players until the last minute! #GoSpartiates pic.twitter.com/3ygVQERDq6

The situation is the same for Rueil, beaten on his floor (63-75) last Saturday, who travels to La Rochelle this evening.
The discovery: women's rugby 7 in Vincennes
It is a unique event, combining sport, culture and awareness of the fight against endometriosis.
This weekend the Léon Bonvoisin stadium, located in the Bois de Vincennes, is hosting the first edition of the “Queens Rugby Sevens”.
Organized by the Alice Milliat Foundation, which encourages the development of women's sport, and co-financed by the European program Erasmus + Sport, this meeting is presented as the "European amateur women's rugby 7s festival" by the organizers.
Discover this weekend's program for the Queens Rugby 7 Festival!
Don't hesitate to come if you're available!

No less than 300 players from all over Europe are expected for this tournament.
Three levels will be represented: school (under 15), university and federal.
"This event and this tournament are a great showcase for the practice of rugby, appreciates the French international Jessy Tremoulière, elected rugby player of the decade by World Rugby, godmother of the Queens Rugby 7 Festival and member of the Alice Milliat collective.
It is important to show that, everywhere in Europe, it is possible for a girl to play rugby and to flourish in the practice of sport.
All of these players are great ambassadors for rugby.
The opportunity to raise awareness among participants and the public about endometriosis, an invisible gynecological disease that affects one in 10 women. The role of physical activity in terms of prevention and improving the daily lives of patients is recognized.
The place to go: the Laure Manaudou swimming pool
Laure Manaudou's former club continues to exist without its legendary siren.
This weekend, the CN Melun-Val-de-Seine is even organizing the 10th edition of its meeting.
An event that takes place from Friday until Sunday at the Laure-Manaudou Olympic Basin, probably under a blazing sun.
On this occasion, several sizes of French swimming have given their agreement to be present.
Thus, the Seine-et-Marnais organizers will be able to count on Charlotte Bonnet, the headliner of French swimming, as well as Enzo Tésic, a native of Seine-et-Marne and Ozoir-la-Ferrière more precisely.
The Swiss Jérémy Desplanches will also be present.
On the sidelines of the meeting, a symposium is organized on Friday evening addressing the various high-level challenges will take place, the proceeds of which will be donated to the ARC,
The meeting not to forget: the Montgeron meeting
The Montgeron Essonne international meeting will take place on Sunday with some pretty headliners.
A return with a 36th edition after two years of absence due to the health crisis for the oldest meeting in France.
As in previous meetings, this party offers a subtle mix of high-level athletes, disabled athletes, and school or club youth.
Each of the top 15 French athletes in each discipline concerned will be invited to take part in this high-level sporting event.
🚨 The Montgeron meeting is back on Sunday, May 15!
We are waiting for you there to encourage the athletes 📣 (free entry) pic.twitter.com/vrNVlVqOzJ
