Sport València

Sport in València, 365 days a year with no excuses

València’s great climate, as well as the beach, are perfect for doing sport. Not only does it encourage residents to lead a healthy lifestyle, the city also hosts a number of championships and sporting events throughout the year.  

A Paradise for water sports

The warmth of the Mediterranean Sea makes the Valencian coast a favourable environment for water sports such as windsurfing, water-skiing and sailing. The latter is a sport that has gained popularity since the city hosted the 32 America’s Cup in 2007.

Non-stop golf

365 days of golf and four courses – El Saler, El Bosque, Manises and El Club Escorpión –, located in spots of natural beauty, make València a dream for national and international golf players. If you want to improve your swing, there’s nothing like practising here.

Fan heaven

They say that Valencian fans are the most passionate in Spain. To see it for yourself, you only have to go to the Pabellón Fuente de San Luis to see Valencia Basket Club or, if you prefer football, you can choose between our two first-division teams to watch: Valencia CF and Levante UD.

Passion for motorbikes

The Region of Valencia’s Circuit Ricardo Tormo, located in Cheste, is a must for motorbike lovers. Among others, the latest global races have taken place here including MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3.

And all the sport that you want to do

With the modern network of sports installations in València you can do almost any sport: the Luis Puig Velodrome for athletes and cyclists, the Tennis Club, Swimming Centres and Horseriding Centres, the Turia gardens where sports like jogging, cycling, football and rugby are often played. As you can see, as long as you’ve got the energy for your favourite sport, in València you can do it.
