A new construction on a public sports court began in February 2024, in Benissa, broadening the town´s appeal. 

The Mayor of Benissa, Arturo Poquet Ribes, has addressed the importance of the project, commenting, “We want to recover the spirit of sports on the streets.” 

The Mayor has introduced the construction, stating that the sports court will be free and open for all public use: “We want to promote street sports with football, basketball, skating or popular games.”

The space will have two multi-sports courts and a children’s playground, inviting the local young people and children to spend more time outdoors. 

“This project makes us especially excited because, in a few months, the young people of the municipality will have a new space in which to practice sports and play with their friends outdoors, “explained Adrian Cabrera, the Council for Sports and Investments. 

The project is fully financed by the Alicante Provincial Council within the +Sport Plan.  

The opening date is not yet established but the Mayor expects the new complex to be open before next year.
