Laval University’s physical education and sports pavilion


The PEPS is expanding and renovations will be complete by summer 2013. The new facilities will bring even more sporting activities — both national and international—to the city of Québec and the province. With its planned additions, the Super PEPS will serve as the training grounds for future professional athletes:
  • Olympic-sized swimming pool, with stands for 1,600 spectators;
  • Gymnasium for basketball, volleyball and badminton, with amphitheatre seating for 3,500 spectators;
  • Indoor soccer/football centre;
  • Multi-room weight training and exercise centre.
The work already completed now gives players of École de hockey de la Capitale easier access to the two rinks, making training even more efficient.
