There is a full sporting agenda in place for the coming months. “From May to August sports is a major part of the local offer, offering fun, leisure and healthy options,” says sports councillor Adolfo Alonso Ferrera, adding, “we have always supported sport as a tool for social involvements and to that end we also invest a lot of resources in improving our sports base and the youth teams that we have in Adeje, and the results are already very positive and of direct benefit to Adeje and our sports women and men. We have an ample range of sporting installations and will continue to work to offer our sports’ fans the best and encourage Adeje sports to travel far and wide”.
Among the headline events is the Adeje Rally taking place this week, an event that is also a classification event for the Spanish championships, and this year the rally is also listed as a pre-inspection event for inclusion in the future in the European trophy competition. The event takes place around the borough on May 11th and 12th.
This month there is also a number of important basketball events in the Tijoco and Las Torres sports pavilions, and over the last weekend in May the borough hosts both the II Martial Arts Adeje Open and the Canarian Youth Volleyball championships.
In June the Tenerife Blue Trail comes to Adeje for the first time, leaving from the Playa Fañabe taking the maritime trail to La Caleta, up to the town along the Calle Grande, and over through the Boca del Paso, la Quinta, Ifonche to Vilaflor, arriving to Puerto de la Cruz.
