Bridge

The members of one of the Club's more relaxed sections, the Bridge Section, can be found battling it out on the lawns, under the trees, and even occasionally in the bridge room.

Chess

Shake up the “grey matter” come back to a game you might well have played in your younger days. Join us and keep the brain active. Just contact any Section member (but after his game is finished!).

Cricket

The SAC's cricketers have an active fixture list, both home and away throughout the summer, including an annual tour to the UK. Our junior development program accepts youngsters from 8 years of age onwards and is conducted each Saturday morning.
The cricket season starts at the beginning of May and lasts until the end of September, with matches generally starting at 1 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. 

Fitness Classes

The Club offers Step and Sculpt, Pilates, Bootcamp and Yoga sessions. It also has a fully equipped gym room.

Football

We'll soon be celebrating 130 years of football at the SAC. British engineers were working on erecting the Eiffel Tower for the great Exhibition in 1889/1890 and after work the young men would unwind with various sporting activities in the Bois de Boulogne, including football. Amongst these young Britons were the men who went on to found the Standard Athletic Club.

Gym Room

The Standard Athletic Club has a small but well equipped work-out room. For safety reasons, children under sixteen are prohibited from using the room.

Snooker

The SAC has a full-sized table near the bar. Before starting, you must put one euro in the slot machine for half an hour’s light on the table. When that time runs out (light goes out) the next game has priority unless you are playing a tournament.
Children over 12 years old may play snooker but must be under adult supervision at all times.

In 1976 the SAC had its own Squash court built. A second court was inaugurated in 1990 in response to persistently strong demand from the membership.
