Since the beginning of the season, Le Parisien offers a series of issues and events not to be missed every weekend in Île-de-France.

Must see poster: Victor Vembanyama in full in the Ile-de-France derby

BASKETBALL. Earlier this week, Vincent Collet was with Pascal Donnadieu in the same polo shirt of the French team. The coach and his deputy have qualified France for the 2023 World Cup. They will face each other this Sunday at 19:00 (live on BeINSport) at the Marcel-Serdan gym in Levallois. Their position: first coach of Mets 92, second Nanterre. The 92 derby is back and it’s definitely special. Sold out like all Mets games – tickets to the game in Nancy in minutes – this edition is definitely special. Always because of the same man: Victor Wembanyama. The prodigy finds his club debut. Count on him to celebrate the evening.

Not to be missed: the rugby show at the Paris La Défense Arena

RUGBY 7 O’CLOCK. Races, tries, grand gestures… If you’re a fan of breezy, live rugby, you’re bound to have a good time during the SuperSevens at the Paris Défense Arena on Saturday. It’s the grand final of the French professional rugby sevens championship. After three provincial qualifiers this summer, just eight teams remain, including two Ile-de-France clubs Stade Français and Racing 92. The French Barbarians, the Parisians who own the title, will not be the favorites of the quarter-finals, but they will be able to rely on the former captain of the France 7, Terry Bouhraou.

Watch out for the “son’s” duel in this match between Mathis Galthié, son of the coach who played with Babaas, and Kelyan Giroud, son of Blues Thibaut Giroud’s performance director. Facing Bordeaux-Bègles in the quarter-finals, Racing presents an experienced team of players experienced in the Top 14, including Antoine Guibert, Olivier Klemenczak or English rocket Christian Wade. After the competition, there will be an evening hosted by a DJ.

Friday duel: Proliga catches its breath

HANDBALL. This start of the weekend news happens once in the front room of the Elite, with a distance duel between the regional teams. Pontault-Combault, the last unbeaten professional club, fell to Sarrebourg on the final day. Pontellois was thus joined at the top of the standings by Cherif Hamani-trained Tremblay, who ran away from Pontault in the off-season. The two Ile-de-France leaders play at home and at the same time (8:30 p.m.) this Friday: Tremblay faces Massy (11th), who is still capable of sparking, while Pontault faces surprisingly advancing Frontignan (4th- c) accepts.

In the Starliga, PSG (still missing Nikola Karabatic) travel to Chartres (11th) this Friday. A likely victory for Elohim Prandi (who has extended his loan until 2026) would put the French champions at the top of the table pending the results of the other two leaders Nantes and Montpellier, who play this Saturday. Finally, Ivry (14th) should not miss at home to Nimes (8th), while Créteil (13th) will be at Cesson-Rennes (4th) on Monday.

Snow awaits: Paris skis on a floating resort

WINTER SPORTS. “Paris fait du ski” is installed on the Concorde Atlantique, one of the largest yachts in Paris, so that you can enjoy a holiday in the mountains an hour earlier. From Wednesday to Sunday, a village with a mountain spirit offers free activities to learn winter sports. Imagine curling, biathlon or even snowboarding from the Seine… It’s possible thanks to an extraordinary experience. The destination is on the side of the 7th arrondissement, quai Anatole France, between the Musée d’Orsay and the National Assembly.

Paris Fait du Ski, jointly organized by LBA Company, Déplacer des Montagnes and Concorde Atlantique, introduces you to winter sports for free and invites you to dive “like in the mountains” with Parisian monuments in the background. In the program: curling, biathlon, snowboard simulators and Méribel-Courchevel 2023 World Championship, 180° visual and audio entertainment dome. Also on the program: a DJ set, gourmet chalets and… a mountain restaurant.
