It’s all systems go for Torrevieja’s new Sports City with 80% of the complex expected to be finished by the end of March. Along with the planned sports centres, Torrevieja’s Town Hall announced this week that a third Pavilion is to be built on the ground presently occupied by the tennis and basketball court, beside the blue roofed Cecilio Gallego Pavilion.
The budget for the new project has been set at €1,100, 475, with the project still to out to tender. The hall is designed for two levels and will offer facilities primarily for such sports as Rhythmic Gymnastics, Ballroom dancing, marshal arts and aerobics along with dressing and training rooms plus physiotherapy.
This new development is additional to the planned complex that should be almost fully operational just after Easter. Although changes have been made to the original plans, a lot of residents are eagerly awaiting to see the new tennis and paddle courts, squash centre, multi-purpose all weather football, rugby and cricket pitch with seating for 3,000, the 1,000 seat Tennis arena, weight rooms, training facilities plus two additional seven-a-side football fields.
Once completed, Torrevieja shall have one of the most enviable sports centres within the Valencian Community, especially when the existing Pavilions and Olympic class swimming pool are also added to the excellent facilities on offer. Add to this the planned expansion of the Football Stadium; Torrevieja certainly has something to feel proud about.
