Sports department renovates the courts of indoor football and volleyball in ‘Guillermo Amor’ facilities
Benidorm City Council has started the rehabilitation works of two of the sports courts of the "Guillermo Amor" Sports City, the indoor football and volleyball courts.
The councilor for sports, Mariló Cebreros, has pointed out that the action is due "to some flaws that were detected in the firm, posts or goals" which could prevent sports "with maximum guarantees." In an inspection of the facilities, it was found deterioration, cracks, braziers, sharp edges or the poor condition of the posts "due to intensive use." "We believe - Cebreros stressed - that it is important to act before sports development or the safety of athletes can be compromised".
The largest court, the football court, has 1,008 m2; the other, 968. The one that is in the worst condition is the first one that “requires milling of the area” and in which “four layers of product” will be applied. In volleyball, “with less deterioration”, there will only be “two multiproduct layers that will be applied”. In both facilities, Cebreros has clarified, they will proceed to the marking with paint and the installation of the necessary accessories "such as competition posts in the case of volleyball or the tensioners of soccer goals, adapted to the highest security requirements ”.
Finally, Mariló Cebreros stated that the tracks are not only used for playing football or volleyball. "Also basketball, or any other activity that adapts to the characteristics of the surface."
The works are progressing in the Sports City as planned, as the mayor, Toní Pérez, the councilor and municipal technicians have been able to verify ‘in situ’. "The covered court - Cebreros announced - is expected to enter service on the first Friday in December, the second, from the second half of December" since before authorizing the intensive use of the courts "we must allow the products to settle down ”. The action involved an investment of 48,261.19 euros.
