Calpe City Council approved subsidies to promote grassroots sports, gender equality and inclusivity to achieve higher quality of local training.

The City Council aims to reduce the public costs of sports activities to facilitate a healthier lifestyle for its residents.  To ensure that the town sports centres are accessible to all, the Council increased the funding of indigenous sports, providing bonuses to families of colombiculture and Valencian pelota.

From the next season, all sports facilities will focus on promoting gender equality and inclusive sports with a new set of regulations. The Sports Councilor, Ximo Perles thanked “all the clubs and cultural entities for their effort in developing a competition that is not specifically theirs in an altruistic and generous manner.”

To emphasise the value of local grassroots sports, more sporting events and official competitions will be held in the future, which with the rising popularity of Calpe within cyclists, will further advance the town´s culture and visitation rates.
