Velez-Malaga presents the programme of sports activities for the summer season
The Sports area of the City Council of Velez-Malaga has presented the programme for the 2018 summer season, with the aim of responding to the great demand for sports and recreational activities that occurs during the summer season.
The Sports Councillor, María José Roberto, explained that the main novelty this year is that the period of activities is extended by one month with respect to the previous year, starting on 15 June and ending on 15 September.
“During the summer season the children are on vacation and have a lot of free time, so we have considered it essential to strengthen the supply of activities in general, and water activities in particular,” said Roberto.
The swimming courses, for children from 3 to 15 years old, will last fortnightly and will be given in the morning and afternoon, depending on the fortnight. They will take place in the indoor swimming pools of Vélez-Málaga and Torre del Mar and the price will be 19.50 euros per fortnight; they can be enrolled in four different levels: splashing, beginners, intermediate and advanced.
“The main objective of these courses is to strengthen the capacities of children in the aquatic environment, so that they acquire the necessary skills to move around in the water, supervised at all times, and taking into account the learning proposed by the technicians of the Department of Sports,” said the mayor.
As for swimming for adults, the format of the courses also becomes bi-weekly; you can choose to attend the sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays or Tuesdays and Thursdays.
In addition to the courses, the indoor swimming pools can be used for free swimming, from 1.5 euros per hour, and with free swimming vouchers at a reduced price of 25 euros per year. They can be used from Monday to Friday, in the morning and in the afternoon, in a specific time slot, and on Saturday afternoons. In the summer season the afternoon timetable is extended.
There is also the possibility of swimming in the open-air swimming pool in the “Zona Sur” of Vélez-Málaga, from Monday to Friday from 4 pm to 8 pm; in Triana, from Monday to Sunday from 4 pm to 9 pm; and in Cajiz, from Monday to Friday from 4 pm to 9 pm; for a price of 1 euro.
The rest of the sports offer includes tennis and paddle tennis courses, for both children and adults, with a monthly price of 20 euros. In addition, the fitness room of the covered pavilion of Torre del Mar will continue to be available at a monthly price of 10 euros.
