Jumilla can now enjoy the new Olympic pool at the La Hoya Sports Center (27/06/2018)

The Mayor of Jumilla, Juana Guardiola, the Councilor for Works and Urban Planning, Francisco González, and the Councilor for Sports, Juan Manuel García, presented this morning the new Olympic swimming pool of the Municipal Sports Center La Hoya, whose works have already been completed.

The installation will open its doors to the public this Sunday, July 1, from 11:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., with the last hour reserved for swimmers.

The work has been carried out by UTE merchants Zima Desarrollos Integrales and Zaragoza 2012 Constructor Group and has had a cost of some 430,064 euros, fully assumed with municipal funds.

The pool has a length of 50 meters long by 21 meters wide and a total of eight streets, with a maximum depth of 2.20 meters and a capacity of about 2,100 cubic meters of water.

The glass is made of shotcrete and reinforced and everything that is in contact with the water has been vulcanized.

It has also installed an elevator that will allow access to people with mobility problems.

The sewer system has also been renovated and four shower steps have been enabled, instead of two as before.

The entire water supply, electrical installation, as well as the floor and staircase of the treatment plant area is also new.

Juana Guardiola has shown her satisfaction for the new installation, "since it is one of the few Olympic swimming pools of these characteristics that are in the Region of Murcia, which can finally return to enjoy the Jumillano after this integral reform essential for breakage of the previous one ".

On the other hand, the Councilor for Sports, Juan Manuel García, has again qualified the decision to make this investment as "successful and courageous, which will allow swimmers to have a magnificent facility."

The mayor of Obras, Francisco González, has offered technical details of the pool and has described it as "a modern, durable and adapted to the current needs of athletes."

Antonio Domene, manager of the awarded company, has described the facilities as "one of the best in the region, without a doubt a luxury for a city like Jumilla".

A necessary work

The previous olympic pool, located in the same place, dated from the early eighties and since 2010 were leaking water losses were detected.

Since then, emergency repairs have been made, but in October 2015, Aguas de Jumilla issued a report indicating that it presented serious structural problems that make urgent comprehensive repairs necessary.

The technical reports recommended not opening it to the public because of the danger it could pose to bathers.

The Local Government then began, immediately, the long process for the construction of the new facility.

After the first elaboration of the project and the tender, up to five companies ended up resigning after exhausting the administrative deadlines, once they were awarded the work, hence they did not start until the end of 2017.

More than half a million euros of investment in the Sports Center

During the last three years, more than half a million euros have been invested in the Polideportivo Municipal La Hoya.

In addition to the construction of the new Olympic swimming pool, the acquisition of material for the athletics track, the public lighting of the different streets and areas of installation step, as well as the renovation of the luminaires of the fields of football, which will also become led soon, which must be joined other improvements and maintenance in stands and changing rooms.

"All this shows the commitment to sport in the current legislature," said the mayor.
