TORREVIEJA town hall received €933,525 from the Ministry of Culture and Sport towards repairs to the Palacio de los Deportes.

Exhaustive €5.588 million renovations to the sports complex are currently converting the centre into a perfect facility for Torrevieja’s sportspeople as well as national and international competitions, said Torrevieja’s mayor Eduardo Dolon.

The first of these is the 2021 Women’s World Handball Championship held between December 1 and December 19.


Torrevieja, which is hosting the championships with Lliria (Valencia), Castellon and Granollers (Barcelona), will be the base for two groups, one of which includes the Spanish side.

The national team will be facing Argentina, Austria and China in Group H, while the Netherlands, Sweden, Puerto Rico and Uzbekistan belonging to Group D will also be based in Torrevieja.

This important financial contribution from the Sports Ministry’s Sports Council (CSD) is allocated to municipalities which support, encourage and promote sport by organising national and international events, Dolon explained.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
