SPORT DANS LA VILLE
“Sport dans la Ville” is a French nonprofit organization which, each week, allows 3,000 young people from difficult neighborhoods to develop their potential through sport in the stable and stimulating environment of its sports facilities.
The organization runs a specific program for young girls called “L dans la Ville”. The Fondation LACOSTE has been supporting this program designed to nurture the self-fulfillment of young girls through sport since 2011. In line with the program’s aims, a tennis activity for young girls was launched in 2014. Since then, and thanks to the Fondation LACOSTE support, 160 girls from the Rhône-Alpes and Ile-de-France regions are able to play tennis for two hours a week.
