Redován will have a complete, fully municipal racquetball area in the Los Pasos Sports Centre once the project, which has already begun to be processed by the Town Planning Department, is completed. Councillor José Nájar explained that the project, which involves the creation of a new paddle tennis court and the repair of the two existing tennis courts in this sports area, is financed with funds from the Alicante Provincial Council’s +Deporte plan and has a basic tender budget of 48,399.76 euros.
The execution project has been drawn up by the Redovan architect Sergio Pina Belmonte and includes the creation of the paddle tennis court. This will be located on the esplanade next to the access to the heated swimming pool, while the two existing tennis courts will also be repaired. Among the improvements to be added to what was initially planned is the repair of the exterior paving around the paddle tennis court, which currently has an irregular and deteriorated finish, as well as the installation of two benches to serve the court.
The Councillor for Sports, Ramón López Escarabajal, said that with this work “we are completing one of the busiest areas of our sports centre in both summer and winter, and we are giving the many paddle tennis fans in Redován the chance to practice this sport in a municipal facility which until now did not exist”.
At today’s meeting, the Local Government Board approved the basic project and the execution of the works, which, once they get underway, could be ready in three months
