…Rhodes is ideal for hosting major championships…

 

Rhodes is a privileged island in the Southeastern Mediterranean sporting 330 days of sunshine, a mild climate, unmatched natural beauty and stretches of heavenly beaches. It has a history spanning 2,400 years and is home to world-class tourist attractions, such as the Medieval Town, the seat of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem.

 




It has a long and glorious legacy in sports, dating back to the first Olympic Games in antiquity where Rhodian athletes excelled. The 3rd-century-BC Ancient Stadium dominating Rhode’s Acropolis bears witness to the island’s many athletic triumphs since ancient times.

 

 

 

With the island’s major landmarks attracting huge numbers of tourists each year, it was only a matter of time before it became a popular sports destination and the host of athletic events of international caliber. As a result, major investments were made to construct new facilities, refurbish the existing ones, acquire new sports equipment and along with it valuable experience and organizational skills. The island now has an excellent infrastructure for hosting major sport events, but also suitable facilities for athletic training of either individuals or teams in almost any type of sport.

 

Athletic facilities in Rhodes include:

a modern 400m, 8 lane athletics track

indoor wooden floor sports halls

several green set tennis courts

an archery field containing all the necessary equipment, including chronometers

football pitches of natural and synthetic surfaces

table tennis equipment

a new indoor air-gun shooting range and a fully equipped shooting facility

Whether your game is soccer, basketball, field events, cycling, tennis, sailing, beach volley, shooting or nearly any other sport, you will find plenty of action right here in modern Rhodes. The island has hosted many major athletic events, including the International Cycling Tour (UCI), the International Beach Volleyball (FIVB), the World Triathlon Cup Competition (ITU), the World Standing Volley Tournament (WOVD) and the Special Olympics (04).
