THE sports facilities in Torrevieja look set to receive another boost as last week Mayor Eduardo Dolon announced that discussions are already happening about the construction of a new multi-use sports pavilion, in the hamlet of La Mata.
It will be the fourth sports facility to be constructed in La Mata and although municipal land is scarce in the council are looking at different possibilities for a pavilion that will be able to offer municipal facilities such as school sports and for the colder months the possibility of offering various activities for sport for all ages.
Logistics and land availability will probably mean it being located near the N-332 to facilitate easy access and will be more just a sports centre as it is expected to be multi-use for local cultural events also. Mayor Eduardo Dolon confirmed these details while on a visit to the new sports centre at Plaza Perfecta Rodríguez, a new outdoor sports zone that has replaced the old facilities in Plaza Encarnación Puchol, which offers football sala, handball and mini basketball.
Although it will only be open for a few more weeks, at the Infanta Christina Sports Centre, the outdoor pool has proved to be a success with residents and visitors alike since it opened earlier this month.
Meanwhile construction is almost finished at the rear of the arena as the latest and third pavilion is just about completed, which will offer activates such as body combat, aerobics, karate, judo and rhythmic gymnastics plus physiotherapy and sports rehabilitation and medicine centre.
More information on the opening of the new sports centre and subscriptions for adult and children sports, are expected to be announced next week.
