In Dornbirn (Austria), a new sports complex for different sports has been built at an exhibition centre. SPIETH Gymnastics has helped to transform exhibition Hall 5 into a sports centre, which is mainly intended for artistic gymnastics, trampolining and TeamGym. Badminton training is also possible on six courts in a separate area in Hall 5.
On about 1,500 m², a large training hall for gymnastics has been created on which more than 100 children can practise at the same time. A variety of gymnastics apparatuses have been newly installed as well as a 60 m² landing pit. The various gymnastics apparatuses are available at several locations in the gym. Some are positioned next to the landing pits for methodological training and others are also available near themat for training under competition conditions. The apparatus has been carefully selected to permit the training of both basic gymnastics and competitive gymnastics. On a single site and with the aim to appeal to the youngest gymnasts, height-adjustable apparatuses have also been installed.
The challenge in designing this project was to keep the apparatus and mats dismantlable for fairs in spring and autumn twice a year. This special feature has already been taken into account during the planning process. At the World Gymnaestrada in summer 2019 and at the autumn fair, the new Hall 5 passed its first acid test with flying colours.
In total, three SPIETH technicians were on site for more than two weeks to fit out this club hall in Austria.
