The local elite club of Noyon Pentathlon Moderne has been perfecting the tradition of sport excellence and training with 11 athletes participating in the Olympic games throughout the years, and has organised several Championnats de France as well as a World Cup. In addition, the club has a strong record in welcoming foreign delegations for training camps purposes. The gathering of several structures within the Coeur de Picardie stadium is a strong asset, with an athletics track and an on-site laser shooting range ,a fencing hall, which will be entirely renovated at the end of Spring 2023 meeting the Olympics standards, the Pierre Dubois gymnasium, and a 25 m pool with a retractable roof and 5 lanes along with equestrian centres.
