Over the past three years, the Sports Programs Office at AUP has established one of the largest and most united communities inside our university. Today, student-athletes regularly meet to practice for the women’s and men’s Volleyball teams, and men’s Basketball and Soccer teams, in order to represent AUP in the Parisian University League Competition and in international university tournaments.
Impressive performances from our students in League Games can be enjoyed on a weekly basis. In addition to competitive sports there is also a variety of recreational sports activities offered such as Flag Football, Yoga, Aerobics, Equestrian, Tennis, Running and Self-Defense where students can join in and work out. Students may also take advantage of several outings per year to major sports events in Paris.
