Construction on the first of two community centres at the luxury Victory Heights golfing community in Dubai Sports City is to go ahead as planned, it has been confirmed.
The community centre is due to be completed by the end of the year and will house a range of recreational facilities including swimming pools, children's play areas, basketball courts and BBQ facilities.
It is also hoped the centre will act as a key focal point for the Victory Heights community which now numbers around 500 families.
The community centre build is part of the final stage of construction of the 961-unit phase one arm of the luxury project, which surrounds the Els Club golf course.
"We anticipate that the centre will become a central part of everyday life in Victory Heights, providing residents with a friendly, local venue where they can take part in a range of social and family activities," said Yasser Abdulrahman Al Raee, general manager at Victory Heights.
Construction on the second community centre is due to start by the end of 2010.
Dubai Sports City is also due to open five Sporting Academies offering world-class coaching to children of all ages in football, hockey, rugby, swimming, and cricket by the end of the year.
