Chamonix’s sports centre, the 🧗♂️ Centre Sportif Richard Bozon, is located just off the main road heading out to Argentière and its facilities include:
- 💦 swimming pools (a 25m indoor pool, a baby pool and outdoor swimming pool);
- sauna and hammam;
- ⛸ ice-skating rink;
- 🧗♀️ climbing wall;
- 🎾 tennis courts;
- 🏃♀️ running track and basketball nets (becoming a winter ice-skating rink!);
[ good to know: with a carte d’hôte (available from your hotel, lodging or to buy from the Office de Tourisme, if lodging with family or friends), a discount is available ]
Here is a list of some of the activities:
The Centre Sportif Richard Bozon has both 💦 indoor and outdoor swimming pools with lanes, as well as a great selection of 🐬 children’s pools with slides and other features, and a relaxation area with sauna, hammam and solarium. There are plenty of options to keep the whole family entertained, whatever the weather!
💦 indoors – there is an 25m indoor pool with lanes, 🐬 a children’s pool with rapids, water jets and a slide;
💦 outdoors – the outdoor area is large and comprises the 50m Olympic pool (swimming in an outdoor pool with a view of Mont Blanc is a special experience!), 🐬 a children’s pool, slides and a children’s paddling pool. Outdoors, there is also a small lake (not for swimming) and a refreshment hut;
🍼 babies and small children – as well as the indoor children’s pool and the outdoor paddling pool and slides, the Centre Sportif Richard Bozon offers special classes for babies and toddlers. On a Saturday morning at 10h, the 💦 Jardin d’Eau offers plenty of fun to babies and toddlers (from 6 months to 3 years) with one or two adults accompanying. At 11h is the 🐟 Petits Poissons class for children from 3-5 years. Lots of toys are put out and the pool is slightly warmed for these classes. See here for more details;
🐟 swimming classes – group or individual lessons can be arranged during the school holidays;
[ ⇒ 🗓 for exact opening hours and entry prices to the swimming pools, please check here, as opening times vary according to the time of year ]
You must wear climbing shoes for access to 🧗♂️ the climbing wall at the sports centre. Children from 6 to 10 years must be accompanied by a guide, and children from 10 to 14 years must be accompanied by an adult (that knows what he or she is doing!).
Ice-skating, Ice-Hockey & Curling
Chamonix’s 60m x 30m ⛸ indoor ice-skating rink houses the 100 year old Ice Hockey Club and is open year round for ice-skating fun, as well as figure skating, ice-hockey lessons and matches and curling. During the winter holidays, there are nocturnes sessions.
[ ⇒ see here for entry prices and opening hours, as these vary according to the time of year ]
good to know: in winter, the running trail (conditions permitting) turns into an outdoor ⛸ ice-skating parcours; this is free to use and you either head there with your own skates or you can rent them from the indoor rink!
There are both 🎾 indoor and outdoor tennis courts and squash courts available at the sports centre. Classes are available on request (even for children as young as 2 years!).
[ ⇒ see here for more details ]
Just outside the ice-skating rink, there is a 🏃♀️ 300m running track, track & field, 🏀 2 basketball courts and 2 handball courts. A good place to have running competitions with the whole family!
This is also a fun place to come and play when there is fresh snow!
Located just behind the sports centre, the skatepark is FREE!
