With its forests, hills, rivers, wide expanses of grasslands and above all, its pure fresh air, the Orne is really blessed!  In fact, it makes the most of this healthy green environment to train young sportspeople! With horse-riding centres, golf courses and hiking trails, the Orne has some of the best outdoor sports facilities in France.

Without a doubt, sport is popular in the Orne. The department has over 58,000 registered sportspeople, 900 clubs and associations and 41 departmental committees and disciplines.

Orne Council promotes sport by funding facilities for the general public and competitions. Its goal is to give every person living in the Orne the chance to practice a sport, close to their home, according to their level and their objectives.

Orne Council also supports sporting events to at least departmental and regional level.
