Municipal Sports Centre
In operation since 2008, it is a modern facility that serves as a venue for the most important indoor sporting events held in our village. Located in the sports and educational area of Altafulla, it has easy access from the road that connects us with Tarragona, and enjoys free public parking just 50 metres from the building. Four changing rooms for the teams and two for the referees, with annexed areas such as the gym and the cafeteria, make the Altafulla sports centre a modern facility where sportsmen and women will find everything they need for a high level competition.
In addition, and as an added value, the Altafulla Municipal Sports Centre is located right in the centre of the sports and educational area. This area is made up of the El Roquissar Primary School, the Sports Centre, Altafulla’s Secondary School and the Joan Pijuan Municipal Stadium, all of which are located near each other. As a result, participants in a major sporting event can use these facilities without having to travel far to train or warm up.
