If the establishment on August 9, health pass for cultural and leisure activities initially slowed down some members, it is above all the last months of restrictions that have weakened associations. Céline Donnot, judo teacher at Shobukai a martial arts club in Nancy, saw the difference: “we have about 400 members, whereas before the crisis we had already risen to 600. We were not able to practice indoors, so it was not easy, the same when we did contactless practice.

Attract new members

Observation also shared by other clubs such as the Laxovian billiard sports association. “We must revive the associative environment and make ourselves known, explains Muriel Humbert, treasurer of the association, we were about forty members over the last season and we had a sharp drop with the coronavirus, we had 70 before. Look for old members and find new ones“.
