In 2023, for the first time, the Maïsadour Group took part in the European Corporate Sports Games held in Bordeaux from 14 to 18 June. Thirty-two of the Group’s sportsmen and women set down their bags in the city of Gironde, which for a few days was transformed into an international playground.
International, because nearly 7,500 company employees from 26 countries competed in 37 disciplines based on “the finest values of sport: performance, sharing and conviviality”, as Amélie Oudea-Castera, the French Minister for Sport, put it at the event.

Competing in 8 events (pelote basque, 3×3 basketball, football, padel, tennis, petanque, beach volleyball and running), our staff worked valiantly over 3 days to bring home 3 medals, including 1 gold – what an achievement!
So the performance was there, as was the sharing and conviviality. Although they belonged to the same Group, our employees, who came from different branches (and regions), got to know each other before the games during their training sessions, and then as the events progressed. This created a bond between our team-mates, giving way to budding professional friendships, linked by shared experiences and memories.
Rallying around the same company dynamic, our employees proudly wore the colours of Maïsadour and its health policy through company sport, a unifying element that benefits both body and mind!
