At the pool area, considered as the symbol of this project, it was decided to take advantage of the existing stands, and rooms located underneath were completely renovated. This space has been rethought through the creation of two well-equipped changing rooms with toilets and a multifunctional room.

The use of different colours in contrast, clear areas and easily locatable accesses, are part of this aim. However, this new attractive image is not just because of the new services offered, but because of the main tennis court, created to complete the existing tennis center. Thus, this complex is able to offer a great setting in which to organize tournaments under the watchful eye of the 300 people who can be accommodated by the stands. A new sports landmark in this great facility.

Regarding the football area, it became necessary to renovate the field after checking the damage caused by water and years of exposure to environment. Therefore, it was decided as best solution, to change the surface into artificial turf due to its perfect finish and low maintenance. An important step forward to improve quality of this large but a bit old facility.
