Map of location:
Fariones Sports Center is one of the most important meeting places in Lanzarote for racquet sports lovers. The four tennis courts, four paddle tennis courts, the frontenis court and the squash rectangle provide the greatest specialization in racquet leisure on the island. It is located near the old town of La Tiñosa, its geographical location and the arrangement of its courts avoid the uncomfortable wind that is traditionally a nuisance in Lanzarote for the practice of tennis.
The facility has planned its offer keeping in mind all segments of the population. That’s why at all hours there are children, adults and seniors practicing swimming, gymnastics, aerobics, and why not, tennis, paddle, frontenis and squash; so designing a complete sports day for all the family is quite simple at this center.
There are organized paddle and tennis classes for children and adults. There are also swimming classes for the smaller children. The gym and the physical workout rooms include an important range of activities like spinning or aerobics. You can recover from your workout in the sauna or in the Jacuzzi, which are free for anyone who is enrolled in any category at the Fariones Sports Center, and the facilities have a massage and physical therapy service.
The atmosphere in the facilities is purely sports like. The number of users has increased in recent years. In the central area of the sport center there is an area to socialize, used mainly by parents of swimming or tennis students and by those who, once they have completed their exercise, comment on their games over a snack. The dressing rooms are in excellent shape; they are very spacious and hygienic, with the possibility of using lockers. It is difficult to find any problems with the facilities; however, its main limitation is the swimming pool, the two 76 foot [23.30 meters] lanes being insufficient for swimming.
The tennis courts are mostly surrounded by natural lawns with lots of trees. You can take advantage of the shade of the leafy trees to contemplate the activities comfortably sitting on some benches. Physical exercise is complemented at the Fariones Sports Center with gastronomical pleasure. The restaurant has very good pasta and international cuisine in general. Nice décor, good service and the correct quality-price ratio make this site an ideal place to spend your leisure time.
