This Easter, Formentera becomes a judo stronghold

Foto judokesFrom Thursday to Sunday, the Antoni Blanc fitness centre will play host to two judo-related events: the 26th edition of an educational retreat, el Stage Internacional de Judo; and the Frutos JL, a memorial cup, or torneu, now in its twelfth year.

Approximately 170 martial arts buffs are anticipated when the pair of events return to the island for another long weekend of competitions, learning and training. Judokas (“judo students”) from Formentera's Club Dojo will be joined by their counterparts from Eivissa, Mallorca, Alacant and Toledo as well as the top competitors of the region in the sènior, júnior, cadet and infantil categories.

Sports secretary Jordi Vidal highlighted the instructional retreat's “long history of attracting talent—from Formentera, the Balearics and mainland Spain”. He called the day “a special chance to enjoy the sport and promote teamwork and camaraderie among our youngest participants”.

This year, classes will be led by national master and sixth dan, Carlos Montero. The special guest at the event will be Maria Bernabeu, who won the bronze medal at the most recent worldwide event in Budapest.

Sports-filled spring on Formentera
Other sporting events are on the horizon, too—Regata Ophiusa, a sailing regatta; Far a Far, a footrace; the island's yearly half marathon and a road bicycle race called “el Trofeu” are among the other trials and competitions aimed not just at showcasing Formentera as a destination for tourism and fitness out of the traditional summer season, but also promoting active lifestyles among islanders.

Cycling event behind road closures Sunday

foto ciclismeFormentera's Office of Sport reports that traffic will be restricted on a number of roads this Sunday when a cycling event rolls into town. Now in its eighth year, the Trofeu de Ciclisme en Ruta, a road-cycling cup, will prompt the following closures:

La Mola's lighthouse to Sant Ferran, 9.30am to 10.45am.

Sant Ferran loop (with es Pujols, la Savina and Sant Francesc in between), 10.45am to 12 noon.

Sant Ferran to la Mola, 12 noon to 1.45pm.

Normal traffic flow will be restored once cyclists have passed.

The match between Formentera and València B has been pushed back thirty minutes to guarantee free access to the municipal pitch.

The Council asks local drivers for their understanding and cooperation.

Crews get to work on Formentera's nautical sports centre

foto centre nautic obres1Two divisions of the Formentera Council, the Office of Sport and the Office of Infrastructure, are together announcing the start of an effort to build Formentera's centre for esports nàutics, or “nautical sports”.

Designed to meet the diverse of needs of local companies in the nautical sector, the facilities will enfold a municipal sailing school as well as a space equipped for administrative and informational services and an area dedicated to education and training.

The new Centre d'Esports Nàutics is the Council's first attempt to connect islanders directly with the sea. Sports secretary Jordi Vidal put the effort in context by explaining that “whether it's about going in for a closer look, education or just having a good time, engaging with the ocean is a vital part to islanders' identity”.  He framed the longstanding effort as aimed at “promoting water sports and respect for this fabulous sea we've got around us”.

A venue for nautical sports has long been a subject of interest for island residents. Now, set for completion in six months' time, construction of the €1m centre stems from a partnership between Demarcació de Costes, the administration of the regional environment ministry's ses Salines reserve and the port authorities of the Balearic Islands. Local infrastructure and mobility secretary Rafael González described the current phase as “the dawn of an initiative many years in the making”and said collaboration from an array of entities was “crucial to securing the best possible site: s'Estany des Peix”.

Formentera Council's €140,000 in funding for local sports clubs

basquet3Funding from the Formentera Council's Office of Sport to the tune of €140,000 means the eight clubs that applied to receive help for fitness initiatives will have 90% of their costs covered.

Promoting fitness
Of the total amount, €74,000 will subsidise fitness promotion efforts that took place in 2017 at the hands of Club Dojo, SD Formentera, Club Pàdel Illa de Formentera, Club Tennis Illa de Formentera, Racing de Formentera, Grup Esportiu Espalmador, Club Bàsquet Formentera and Club de Natació Formentera.

Sports councillor Jordi Vidal called the funding “extremely important” for the clubs, and noted the administration had advanced half of the promised money to spare the clubs from shouldering the burden of fronting it themselves.

Travel costs
Approval was also given for €66,000 in handouts to cover clubs' travel costs when participating in competitions.

The financing comes in addition to the €20,000 the Council has allotted for sports federations and €10,000 it gave to three under-18 athletes in collaboration with the federation for sport in the Balearics, or FEB. Separately, the Council has also offered €18,000 in sponsorship deals to various high-level sports players.
