Great news for those of us who live permanently in the Orihuela Costa, and that which benefits us, naturally benefits the holiday makers and sunshine seekers that regulary visit our coastlines.
Orihuela Town Council approved a Sports Centre some time ago and work has commenced on this.
The Coast’s Sports Centre will consist of two tennis courts, three paddle courts, two Multisport courts and a full size football field including a grandstand with capacity for 400 spectators.
Also for the fitness minded invidual – a jogging track that circles the entire site, measuring 550 meters in length.
With facilities enough for 4 football teams and officials, plus another area for the users of all the other facilities, this is a huge undertaking and guaranteed to offer residents the opportunity to keep fit and active (or for some, to simply work off the over-indulgence which can be a by-product of living in the sun and having a leisurely lifestyle. Lets face it, with an abundance of bars and restaurants, and a need to stay out of the sun during those midday hours, who amongst us can hold up their hand truthfully and say that they haven’t overindulged ever so slightly since moving here?)
No more excuses, then. Specially adapted for wheelchair users, this sports centre really is for everyone. The semi-olympic size swimming pool will be a great advantage to the area over the winter months especially, but even in summer it’s good to go for a swim in the covered pool, as all that sunshine is not conducive to actual exercise, only to making us all more tanned!
