1. Specifications
Access to the complex is from the northeast and from the southeast of the site, through a slightly sloping space, surrounded by the multi-purpose hall and by a longitudinal volume, from where access to the different facilities is gained. The communication between the various spaces is via an entrance hall that connects the different facilities, the administration services and the restaurant.

2. Multi-purpose Hall
It has four grandstands, one of which is mobile and can be accessed at its upper level from the main hall. Under normal conditions, athletes enter through the main hall and go down to court level. Here we find a longitudinal block of changing rooms. In a second phase, a training hall will be built at one of the ends. In the case of important competitions, athletes, VIPs, press and medical services will access the hall from the southeast end of the building, at court level.

3. Aquatic Area
This area is accessed by descending one level from the main hall of the complex, reaching the changing rooms, toilets and saunas area. This zone is connected to the swimming pools through a corridor that articulates the aquatic facilities with the changing rooms and the general services of the complex. Public access to the swimming pools is via a second corridor, on the same level as the main hall, which continues into the indoor swimming pool space through a perimeter ramp.

4. Fitness Centre and Gymnasium
They have separate entrances from a vertical core, and share the changing rooms and the swimming pools facilities. This area is divided into two levels, connected between them and to the changing rooms.

5. Car Park
There is a provisional car park that will be replaced in the second phase of construction by the one set out in the project.
