Malaga Aquatic Centre
The Malaga Aquatic Centre (INACUA) was completed in 2008, to host the European Waterpolo Championships. The modern complex is located in a new urban area, close the motorway connecting the city of Málaga with the Sun Coast, 1 mile from the airport, next to the Martin Carpena Sport Palace and the athletics Stadium, and just 200m from the sea.
The centre boasts both an indoor and outdoor 10 lane – 50m x 25m pool, as well as 2 x short course 25m and 17m indoor pools. Both 50m pools have starting blocks and lane ropes, with 6 underwater viewing windows located in the outdoor pool. From October 2018 the outdoor pool has been heated to a comfortable temperature for training.
All groups have full use of the 1,000sq. metre fitness room for a one hour land training session each day (pre or post swimming). Rooms close to the pool are available for exercises and stretching and there is enough outdoor space for land training.
Most of our groups have stayed in nearby Torremolinos, only a short 10 minute transfer to the pool. These 3 & 4* hotels offer a beach location, which are enjoyed by groups outside of training and are experienced at welcoming and catering for sports teams. But now we are pleased to offer accommodation within just a 20 minute walk or 10 minute cycle ride away from the Malaga Aquatic Centre – the newly renovated Arunda Sports Residence
