Sports Facilities

Velez-Malaga Football Ground

Velez-Malaga has a wide range of different sports facilities. Whether you want to challenge the Spanish to a football game, keep up your gym routine, take a dip in a pool or try beach volleyball in Torre del Mar, take a look at what’s on offer in and around Velez…

Swimming Pools

As Velez is so close to the beach there aren’t a great deal of public outdoor pools in the area. However, if you’re looking for lanes, lessons or weekend swimming with the children then the indoor pool sports complex listed below should suit your needs.

Tennis & Padel Courts

‘Tennis’ is self-explanatory, but you may well be new to the popular Spanish sport of ‘padel’. We won’t go into detail here but think of it as a mix between tennis and squash played with a thicker version of a beach tennis racket (it makes a lot more sense when you start to play). We highly recommend that you give it a go during your stay. For lessons and court bookings, get in touch with any of the below.
