Sport is an important energy source and is a favorite activity for many people around the world. It provides us with enjoyment and also freshens up our mind. However, playing sports is actually more than mere running, jumping, or kicking a ball on the field. Indulging in sports helps our body to function smoothly and more efficiently. Sports involve the activity of each and every muscle in the body. This strengthens and promotes good health. The municipality of The Hague in the Netherlands, The Hague University of Applied Sciences and ROC Mondriaan are moving the whole city of The Hague to Sportcampus Zuiderpark to explore sports of all kinds.

Eight football pitches, a multi-functional artificial pitch and a beach court are currently being  created outdoors.  With a surface area in excess of 30,000 m², Sportcampus Zuiderpark is one of the largest sports complexes in Europe.

6,962 m² of Pulastic sports floors applied

The elite sports hall, multi-purpose sports hall and four other sports halls feature 6,962 m² of Pulastic sports floors. A decision was made to opt for the Pulastic  Elite Performance 65 XLS. This system is specifically aimed at very high training intensities and elite competitive performance. A stunning dark red floor (oxide red) has been selected for the elite sports hall, while a pigeon blue floor has been selected for the other sports halls. The campus is an impressive sports complex that combines elite  sports facilities with knowledge in the field of sports performance.

Sportcampus Zuiderpark is to become the heart of sport for the city.  Athletes come together here to train, play sports and win. With all these different sports halls, there are many possibilities for everyone, from indoor sports like gymnastics, badminton and basketball to indoor beach football and beach volleyball. This mix creates an inspiring and vibrant social meeting place—a place where you progress, whether at recreational or top sport level.
