For the World Championship, the municipality puts a tour disposal the sports area « Espace sportif de la Sauer », mainly dedicated to the practice of handball. On the front of the sport hall is a playground for children and right next a forest and its health course. There are parking options in front of the hall but also in the surrounding area.
For the competitors who come in camping car we ask you to inform the organizers as soon as possible.
All around the hall dogs should be kept on leash. During your walks in the forest, please pay attention to joggers and walkers. Who says forest says also ticks ! Think about protecting your dogs. We would also like to remind you to pick up dog poops all around the sports area.
The sport area consists of two halls connected by the bar and restaurant area. The competition will take place in the large hall. The size of the ring will be 20 X 20 m and the warm up area 10 X 10m. The evolution surface will be the one used in previous years, the blue rubber mats. The judges will be placed back to the spectators in front of the bleachers so that the routines can take place facing also the spectators.

To acces to the warm-up area and the ring the competitors will have to cross the corridor that connects the two rooms guided by a steward. That corridor will be prohibited to the public.
To guarantee performing in the best conditions, will be allowed in the room only the dog in the ring and the one in the warm-up area. Visitors dogs will not have access to the hall.
A changing room will be dedicated to bitches in season which must be announced no later then arrival. They will have the possibility to use the door close to the changing room to avoid as much as possible the problems for the males.
