The first day was dedicated to schoolchildren, and the second to the general public, at the legendary Golf National.
On Friday, more than 600 6th and 5th graders from 24 local classes set the mood.
Discovering new disciplines and sporting practices, the pupils gave their all in their workshops!
BUT, this first day was only a warm-up…
