SPORTS enthusiasts in Adra now have brand new facilities right by the sea.
The local council has opened up the El Palmeral multi sports court next to the municipal indoor swimming pool, offering the public what Mayor Manuel Cortes said was somewhere for children and adults to practice something “as healthy and fun” as football, basketball and more.
Financed by local authority and European funds, the €62,000 facilities are, the council said, part of a policy to make sport readily available to residents and to revitalize public areas.
Speaking at the official inauguration of the court last week, Cortes explained it is not just multi-sport, but also multi-purpose: one of the sides can be taken up so it can also serve as a stage for cultural events.
These kinds of multi-functional public spaces and favour and generate social integration between local residents”, the Mayor commented.
