On 28 May 2015, the GEMS World Academy-Etoy international school inaugurated its new sports facilities with the support of both Olympic and young athletes. During an evening dedicated to "Sport in Action", which included demonstrations of swimming, basketball, dancing, netball, badminton, and fitness, athletes and students were able to show the entire range of disciplines available on site.
 
GEMS World Academy’s special display in honour of sport was an impressive occasion with a red carpet welcome, live music and the presence of famous sport personalities. The event was marked in particular by the vibrant speech of Jean-Christophe Rolland, president of the International Rowing Federation (FISA) and Olympic medallist. He shared his experiences with the audience, relating how he won the gold in Sydney, and recalling the importance of determination in pursuing his athletic goals and - more generally - in everyday life.

For the first time, the center facilities were showcased at full capacity, giving the site a festival atmosphere. Many sporting events were showcased including a swimming demonstration led by Adrien Perez - former Olympian and holder of the Swiss record of the 50m butterfly short course (25m) - and the Rolle Swimming team; a synchronised swimming show by Pamela Fischer - worldwide swimmer and former Olympian - and her team; a basketball demonstration with Milos Bozovic - BBC Lausanne (League B) player - and the DEL Team.
 
The new center was designed by Architects Architecture and Design Lausanne CCHE SA, and features a 25-meter long swimming pool, a large multi-sport court, a climbing wall, a fitness room and a dance studio. These facilities will not only benefit students at the school, but can also be rented by local organisations and societies. "We are delighted to offer such state-of-the-art facilities to our students and the entire region," said Audrey Peverelli, Director and CEO of the school.
