The Costa del Sol’s climate and comprehensive facilities make it possible to participate in many different types of sport: golf, sailing and tennis, however, remain the most popular. This chapter covers the different sporting activities on the coast.
If you speak some Spanish and want the chance to integrate into local society, it’s good idea to join a sports club or group at your local sports centre. Municipal centres also offer the opportunity to join sports federations and to compete at regional and national levels. Costs are usually low and annual membership may be available. A wide variety of classes are offered throughout the day. Ask at your local town hall for information on sports venues and activities available in your area. Municipal sports centres typically offer aerobics, athletics, badminton, basketball, football, gymnastics, handball, judo, karate, rhythmic gymnasium and sauna.
