Built in 2006 to accomodate the European Swimming Championships and seating 3000 visitors, this stadium features a 50m competition pool and a 25 m diving pool. It has separate high-tech training facilities for top sports swimming and diving.
Its link to the existing Tongelreep pool and leisure complex insures permanent and efficient use. Green banks and roofs integrate the mass of the stadium into its natural setting.All images by Klaas Vermaas
