Sports For All

The Sierra Sports & Fitness Club, located beside the Crocodile Club, the very popular rendezvous for residents, guests and visitors alike at the Desert Springs Resort, opened its doors In August 2005. Since then our resident Sports Manager, Jim Gordon, has been listening to resident’s suggestions, with a view to the extension of the existing range of sporting activities and programmes so as to appeal to more people and to be available all year round.

First, we are pleased to announce that the following year round activities have been introduced: –

  • Tennis & Paddle Roll-Up! Every Tuesday & Thursday from 6 until 9pm.
  • Tennis & Paddle BBQ & Quiz Night- Every Friday at 5pm
  • Beach Volley Ball Roll-Up! Every Tuesday & Thursday from 6 until 9pm.
  • Junior 3 Day Tennis Programme and Beach Volley Ball Programme

Second, The Sierra Sports & Fitness Club also now offers tailored sports & activity programs throughout the year for adults, for the “youth” and for children. The latter two keep the kids fully and actively occupied and allow their parents & grandparents some free time of their own. Children from 6 to 12, young people from 12 to 17, and adults can sign up for anything from a single activity session for €10, through a full day of activities for €30, up to a complete 5 day programme of varied activities for €120.

Third, as ever, Jim continues to provide lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced players in both tennis and paddle tennis and he is always available to set up a personal fitness program helping you keep fit and active. Everything is possible; you simply choose what you want!

Fourth, to date the gym, apart from the free weights, has really been a strictly aerobic fitness only facility. We are now introducing, in response to resident’s requests, three new state of the art pieces of Star Trak resistance equipment.

Fifth, a much better bike rental scheme has been introduced for our fleet of 22 sturdy Ventura Mondraker Mountain Bikes. The bikes are now available for periods of anything from 2 hours for €10 Euro to 2 days for €45, with discounts for under 18’s. Helmet, bike lock and a route map are included and there is a range of different sizes, suitable for use by all the family. All bikes have independent front suspension and disc brakes.

So, whether for your family or yourself, take the time to find out what’s going on and plan your holiday in advance by visiting the Sierra Sports & Fitness Club on the website where there is full detailed information here.

Or simply come along and meet Jim at the Gym!
