Catchball is on the programme of the European Company Sport Games.

Following the request of several of its members, the European Federation for Company Sport has approved the 38th discipline: we are pleased to announce a catchball competition in Bordeaux.

For those who are not familiar with this discipline, it is an exclusively feminine team sport that was developed in Israel for women over 25. Two teams of six players play against each other. Catchball is quite similar to volleyball, but unlike volleyball where passes are not blocked, in catchball players catch the ball before passing it. We are looking forward to organising the competition of this new and growing sport across Europe.


Catchball registration is already possible online. Of course, the registration deadline for this discipline will be extended beyond January 31st 2023 to allow interested teams to join us. Registration remains open for all other disciplines. Discover the discipline in video.




Thanks to the support of our partners, you will be able to practice your favourite sport in facilities that are perfectly adapted to the needs and spirit of the European Company Sport Games.

Thus, we will offer sports centres, in which several disciplines will take place in the same place, as well as historical and prestigious sports sites for which the city of Bordeaux is famous.


In the north of Bordeaux, the 5-a-side, 7-a-side and 11-a-side football tournaments will be played at the Plaine des Sports – Colette Besson, as well as the darts, shooting, triathlon and some tennis tournaments.




The table tennis events will be held at the historic and majestic Velodrome. A few hundred metres from this central site of the European Games, you will also be able to encourage the participants in the squash, padel, sailing or dragon boat events, while some golfers will discover the two 18-hole courses of the Bordeaux Lac golf course.



To the south of Bordeaux, a large number of modern facilities of the University and CREPS of Bordeaux, usually dedicated to high-level athletes, will host all handball and basketball tournaments as well as the archery competition and part of the beach volleyball games. Shuttles driving to other golf courses and to the last beach volleyball site will also leave from this location. They are the only sites to not be directly served by the public transport network. We have mapped out the cycling route a little farther south to take you through some beautiful scenery, including some of the famous Bordeaux vineyards.



Finally, all other disciplines will take place in the city centre in spectacular infrastructures and on historic sites: petanque on the Place des Quinconces, badminton at the Mériadeck ice rink, 3×3 basketball at the Palais des Sports, Basque pelota or beach volleyball at the Parc Saint Michel, swimming at the Judaïque swimming pool… You will appreciate these symbolic places not only for their sporting value but also their beauty and historic dimension.


Bordeaux’s facilities are ready and waiting for you!

“The USCG Squash is coming back to the European Games.”

“The FFSE adventure of the USCG Squash began in 2004 in Clermont-Ferrand. Then, we had the chance to go to other events such as Aalborg in 2007, Hamburg in 2011, Prague in 2013 and Riccione in 2015. In 2023, USCG Squash will be back at the European Games and compete in 2 disciplines: padel and squash.

Our previous participations, only with squash teams, have always brought us great moments of sport and conviviality, as well as some medals that we are proud to have won for the SNCF. We look forward to meeting again in Bordeaux and complete the collection.”
