TOP American basketball players visit Fuengirola for a six-day training session at the Fuengirola-Higueron Training Centre.

Some two years ago, in the midst of the pandemic, Mayor Ana Mula launched a project to position Fuengirola as the international epicentre of professional basketball training and, thanks to the efforts of Ewo Sport, led by two world champions Berni Rodríguez and José Manuel Calderón it’s coming to fruition.

“We are delighted that Fuengirola will host this initiative and we are sure that it will be the first of many”, said Councillor Rodrigo Romero, who attended the opening day of this event together with the Councillor for Beaches, Javier Hidalgo.

The centre which is owned by the council, and cost €3 million offers first class training facilities to international teams as well as players from Fuengirola.
