Abellana Cebu City Sports Center

By on March 31, 2009

Abellana Cebu City Sports Center, formerly known as the Abellana Oval, has made such a positive difference in Cebuanos’ lives. The sports center has encouraged many a Cebuano to take an interest in sports and live a healthier lifestyle. This has also inspired the development of different kinds of sports activities.

In 1993, Cebu had won the bidding for the hosting of the 1994 Palarong Pambansa (Philippine National Games). Located at the Abellana National School grounds, the Abellana Cebu City Sports Center was constructed for the 1994 Palarong Pambansa. For the Abellana Oval to accommodate the games and events, the Department of Education, Culture and Sports (DECS) and the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) proposed its renovation and the construction of additional facilities. The renovation was completed on time and boasts the following facilities: rubberization of the Abellana Oval, consisting of 400 meters of world-standard material and specifications; stadium that could accommodate 12,000 to 15,000; 50-meter by 25-meter swimming pool with ten lanes; 15-meter by 10-meter warm-up pool, gymnasium, ballroom, workout area, and multipurpose rooms for different indoor sports and games.

The successful renovation of the Abellana Oval, now known as Abellana Cebu City Sports Center, has made possible Cebu’s hosting of the 1994 Palarong Pambansa. In 2005, Abellana Cebu City Sports Center hosted seven game categories of the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games. It has also become the venue for Cebu’s Sinulog celebration held every third Sunday of January.

    I have noticed that credit restoration activity need to be conducted with techniques. If not, you could obtain yourself endangering your rank. In order to realize your aspirations in fixing your credit rating it’s important to confirm that from this moment in time you pay all of one’s monthly dues promptly in advance of their planned date. It is significant on the grounds that by not accomplishing that, all other steps that you may decide to try to improve your credit positioning will not be effective. Many thanks for expressing your ideas.

    What is the required swim shorts for men at the sport center in cebu. I am visiting from another country and called and was told my surfboard swim shorts (heavy duty nylon non-tearable material) are ok. After paying…some guy claiming to be lifeguard says only tight lycra allowed. If so what is the reason for no worldwide used surf shorts ????

    And if surf shorts are allowed who do i contact to make sure that info is passed thru to the guys who insist only lycra tight shorts allowed.
