“DELFI” SPORTS CENTRE IN VILNIUS
Client: UAB „Vandens parkas”
Project: Year 2015-2016
Realization: Year 2016
___VICHY aqua park has already been operating in Vilnius for many years, however, taking into account the neighbouring objects (Siemens arena, the shopping center Ozas) and the flows of people, inevitably it became necessary to develop the range of services provided by the aqua park, i.e. to build an indoor sports court for land sports such as badminton and beach volleyball by developing the existing building of the aqua park towards the western part of the land-plot. For this purpose, the annex was designed, where Delfi sports centre was established. It has 4 beach volleyball and beach tennis courts, 2 outdoor tennis courts, and 8 badminton courts, which meet the international standards. The part of the annex, which is joined to the existing building of the aqua park, is also equipped with an open universal training hall (400 sqm), dressing rooms and a private rest room. Up to one hundred people can exercise in Delfi sports centre at one time. The total area of the sports centre is 4500 sqm.
___The territory of the annex is also arranged by separating the part of the territory at the western facade: access to the pond is built; recreational area is created between the aqua park annex and the shopping center It is expected to build 4 beach volleyball courts on the western side of the building.
___Delfi sports centre was nominated the Object of Sports Infrastructure of the Year in the Lithuanian Sports Management Awards 2016.
