A good deal for sports, leisure and voluntary groups

Angers is mad about sport, with 32,000 people registered to use its running-tracks, gymnasiums and swimming pools. Voluntary activities also abound, from clubs practising ‘Boule de fort’ – a game local to the Val de Loire – to projects spanning generations.
