Nudesletter – September 2020


After almost 6 months, our activities at Roger Le Gall swimming pool start up again in a week. I’m proud of the dynamism of my team since March 16th, with the creation of our YouTube channel ANP TV, the setting up of our online classes during the confinement then the live classes several times a week and, since the reopening of the Bois de Vincennes, classes of small groups once or twice per week. We never once in that time forgot our devotion to our members and to the naturist community. I dare to say that thanks to coronavirus, we have grown; we have found within ourselves new ways to work for you and we will continue to explore them.

Events in August:

Apart from a stormy Sunday, our coaches held classes throughout the month of August. It’s always a pleasure to see new faces during these sessions. They’re open to everybody, like all ANP activities.

Upcoming events:

Our coaches will be present to give gym and yoga classes in the naturist zone of the Bois de Vincennes throughout September, followed by a picnic:

Sunday September 6th from 11:30am - 12:30pm: gym class with Claire
Sunday September 13th from 11:30am - 12:30pm: yoga class with Damien
Sunday September 20th from 11:30am - 12:30pm: gym class with Yvan
Sunday September 27th from 11:30am - 12:30pm: gym class with Claire

Please respect the distance between people.

The television channel C8 is in the process of producing a documentary about naturism. They’re following an ANP member, to whose house they have invited themselves this Friday September 4th for a midday barbecue. If you’re free, Emmanuel will be happy to welcome you near Chelles.

Our members with up to date membership all received an invitation to our Annual General Meeting, which will take place on September 5th at the Club Gymnique de France. Due to COVID, places are limited and have all been reserved already.

On Saturday September 12th, the ANP will be at the 12th Arrondissement’s Association Fair.

Exhibition visit: On Sunday September 13th, the ANP will be at the Cinémathèque française (French Film Library) for a naturist visit of the Louis de Funès exhibition. Reservations are now open and it is free. Don’t miss this exceptional experience. Such events are rare and are talked about for years, so it’s a shame to regret not having participated. Follow this link to book your tickets.

We are still hoping that the World Naked Bike Ride will be authorised by the Prefect of Paris on September 13th. Information will be posted on the event’s Facebook page.

For more information on our outings, please take a look at the events page on our website or send us an email or an SMS on +33 7 66 14 53 09.

Reopening: The pool reopens on Monday September 7th at 9pm.

With the coronavirus situation, new rules have been put in place for the pool and gym. Please read the information posted around the complex.

Masks are compulsory in all areas:

  • at the welcome desk
  • in the entire entry area
  • in the changing rooms
  • around the pool (but obviously not in the water)
  • in the gym when you’re not working out

Please don’t forget to bring your masks, along with a plastic bag to keep it in when you’re in the water. Don’t forget to bring a small bottle of hand disinfectant.
We are supplying spray to kill microbes and viruses on the machines in the gym. It’s the role of each person to clean the benches, weights and other objects after use. It’s also important to remove weights from the machines out of respect for the next person.
Please respect distances between people. In the gym there is only 1 metre between each machine, so please only use every second machine. I know that we’re all excited to see our friends after so long but we have clear rules to follow and we’re counting on you to respect them.
Please also limit the time spent in the changing rooms.
Places for our classes (gym and yoga) will be limited so as to respect a good distance between each participant. I thus request that you reserve your places by sending us an email.
Finally, Paris Town Hall invites you to take a free blood test. Click on this link for more information.

For those attending for the fist time, here are our hours. You will also find our free invitation on our website for your first visit. The ANP is more than a club - it’s a family. Even with all of these new rules in place, you will quickly find the social side of this association.
