The Stade Pierre de Coubertin (French for Pierre de Coubertin Stadium) is an indoor arena in Paris, France. It is the home venue of the Paris Saint-Germain Handball team. Currently the arena has a capacity of 4,000 seats.

Stade Pierre de Coubertin was opened in 1937 for the Universal Exposition and was rebuilt after bombing during the Second World War.[2] The stadium was used as a detention centre during the Paris massacre of 1961.[3] In 1990, it underwent a renovation which includes a new façade, expansion of seating capacity, and addition of various service areas.[1]

In addition to being the home of the former basketball team Paris BR, the Stade Pierre de Coubertin each year hosts various sports events such as two fencing Grand Prix: Challenge International de Paris (in January) and Challenge Monal (in February), Open Gaz de France women's tennis tournament, and Internationaux France Badminton.[citation needed] It is selected as the venue for table tennis competitions at 2024 Summer Olympics.[citation needed]
