With the publication of the tender for the design of the “Palatennis” in the Giovino area, the project that will see the construction of a new indoor/outdoor multi-purpose sports facility begins to take shape thanks to the financing of four million euros benefiting the municipal administration. An urban and social regeneration project which involves environmental redevelopment and the creation of equipped green areas in an area, previously owned by the Province and then acquired by the Municipality, of approximately 10 thousand square meters between Via Carlo Pisacane and the Giovino pine forest .
The project involves the construction of four tennis courts, one of which is covered, in a facility with a capacity of around a thousand spectators and which, thanks to telescopic stands, could be increased by a further five hundred units.. The indoor field will be adapted to the standards of national competitions, while the entire facility will also be equipped with a club house and a hospitality stand, with adjoining spaces for athletes, spectators and competition judges, all at the service of the activity sporty. Furthermore, the external area will be equipped with adequate parking spaces and road access and accessibility will be guaranteed for people with disabilities and for the use of the Paralympic disciplines. In order to enhance the presence of the pine forest, the complex will be designed with construction systems in harmony with the naturalistic context.
“A project that we inherited from the previous Administration and which, thanks to the dialogue with the Calabria Region, holder of the financing, can now come to life offering the opportunity to strengthen the sports facilities with a complex dedicated to racket lovers, capable of host large events in the area with the greatest tourist vocation of the city”, comment the councilors for Public Works, Raffaele Scalise, and for Sport, Nunzio Belcaro. “An intervention that adds to that planned for Corvo, with the facility intended for non-competitive basketball, volleyball, padel and martial arts activities, and to the smaller, but significant, investment for the existing facility in Pistoia wanted by the arrived Fiorita. Works and projects that contribute to giving a sign of attention and presence, especially in the southern area, to regenerating disused areas, to meeting the growing needs of athletes, associations, enthusiasts of all disciplines, combining social aggregation with the sports and leisure. It will take time to reap all the fruits, as we fight against daily emergencies, but we cannot put aside the ambition of seeing a more sustainable, modern and citizen-friendly Catanzaro.”
