From fencing to Coubertin, a carnival atmosphere at Paris Basket… Your sports weekend in Île-de-France


At the start of the year, a few sporting events will animate the halls and stadiums of the Paris region between this Friday and Sunday.

The winter break is now very far away.

The holidays have passed with their excesses, but the good habits do not change.

Le Parisien offers a selection of issues before each weekend and details the events not to be missed in Île-de-France.


The event not to be missed: the Mazars Challenge International de Paris


Even before the first assaults, the 2023 edition of the CIP has already made history.

This weekend, the Pierre-de-Coubertin room (where PSG handball players usually play), will host the Women's Foil World Cup events, at the same time as those of the gentlemen who have become accustomed to the 16th arrondissement. since many years.

“Since the start of my mandate, two years ago, the girls have been telling me about their desire to play in a large hall, explains Bruno Gares, president of the FFE.

I heard their message.

So we contacted the international federation to offer them this new format where everyone is a winner.


The news was obviously widely appreciated by the members of the French women's team.

“This competition is an institution, with a magnificent organization, rejoices the world champion Ysaora Thibus.

I went to Coubertin several times with, I admit, a little bit of jealousy because we didn't have a competition of this level.

It's an honor, but it's also deserved.

Pauline Ranvier and Anita Blaze, her two partners in the French team, silver medalist at the Tokyo Games, are also in the game.

This Saturday, therefore, the individual competitions take place, followed by the team competitions on Sunday.

Among the gentlemen, all attention will first turn to Enzo Lefort, the last French winner of the CIP in the individual tournament (in 2014).

Le Melunais, world champion last summer in Cairo, will lead the many Blues who qualified on Thursday, including Maxime Pauty and Julien Mertine, Olympic team champions in 2021 with him.

All the cream of the foil will be present, starting with the formidable Italians who monopolize the first places in the world ranking.

The good plan of the weekend: carnival atmosphere at Paris Basketball


Before creating the event in a week with a match at the Accor Arena against Asvel, the capital club will offer a "caliente" program to its audience at Halle Carpentier this Sunday.

A shock on the floor and a show in the room.

On the occasion of the reception in Strasbourg (5 p.m.) for one of the posters of the 17th day of Betclic Elite, Paris Basketball will immerse the spectators of the match in a Caribbean atmosphere with its now traditional "West Indies Game".

The Pourkoipa Family, a carnival troupe, will provide entertainment during the meeting with traditional dances.

DJ Moody Mike, travel partner of Joey Starr in the Route de la Soif, will immerse the Halle Carpentier in the carnival atmosphere with the latest hits and must-have sounds as soon as the doors open at 4 p.m.

The party would not be complete without the famous products of Creole gastronomy.

A refreshment bar will therefore offer planters (without alcohol), agoulou and other sausage rougaille...

The poster to follow: the Lionesses of Paris 92 must start


Automatically qualified thanks to their third place in the Butagaz Energie League last season, the Lionesses of Paris 92 began their campaign in the EHF European League last week with a loss (24-28) against the Germans of Thüringen.

Suffice to say that the reception of the Romanians of Valcea, this Sunday (2 p.m. at the Palais des Sports in Issy-les-Moulineaux) is an essential meeting if the players of Yacine Messaoudi wish to see the quarter-finals, in a group ( D) within reach which also includes the Hungarians of Praktiker Vac.

For this first European Cup match at home, the international Laura Flippes (who will join Bucharest next season) and her teammates will have to count on the unconditional support of the public, against a formation which has been particularly successful over the weekend. -end, with 40 goals scored against Vac.

For their part, the Franciliennes reacted well in the middle of the week in the league with a success at home against Dijon (31-28).

The lionesses are back in the European league:

They join group D with:

The number: 3


Like the number of players forfeited for the perilous trip from Nanterre to Limoges this Saturday during the 17th day of Betclic Elite, the last of the first leg.

While Miralem Halilovic had celebrated his return to competition after 3 months of absence (broken finger) with a double-double (15 pts, 11 rebounds) last week during the defeat against Cholet (78-84), he was replaced in the infirmary by Rion Brown.

The American fullback suffered a broken hand against Cholet.

He joins an injured list that still includes interior Hans Vanwijn and point guard Justin Bibbins


Uncertainty also remains on the presence or not of Lucas Dussoulier, touched on a contact against Cholet.

"We are experiencing situations that I have never experienced," admitted coach Pascal Donnadieu at a press conference last week.

The long series of injuries continues!

@RB_Trey15 injured in the hand (fracture) against Cholet will be absent for a period of 2 months.

It is therefore without Justin Bibbins, without Hans Vanwijn and without Rion Brown that the greens and whites will travel to @limogescsp on Saturday… 🤕🤕🤕
