The Costa Teguise based family and sports holiday resort of Sands Beach Resort has unveiled the latest addition to its ever-expanding portfolio of sports facilities – a brand new, 25 metre, 2.2 metre deep swimming pool.
Under construction since early 2012, the internationally accredited pool occupies the resort’s sunny Plaza Verde with views over the Atlantic Ocean, has eight swimming lanes and is heated to a temperature of 26 degrees making it the ideal training ground for professional swimmers, duathletes, triathletes, synchronised swimmers and sports groups.
The 25 metre pool is the latest sports facility to be opened by Sands Beach Resort whose sponsored athlete Marieke Vervoort won gold and silver medals in the 2012 London Paralympic games last week. Marieke is one of several professional sports athletes sponsored and supported by Sands Beach Active who also sponsor their own annual sporting events of the Lanzarote Marathon and the Spring Duathlon which are staged on the island.
Along with a fully equipped gym, tennis courts, professional cycle hire, Stand Up Paddle and trial dives in the resort’s own lagoon, and the on-site expertise of their own physiotherapist and nutritionalist, the new 25 metre pool will be another reason why Sands Beach Active is attracting increasing numbers of sports professionals to train at its Costa Teguise base.
