The mini indoor sports arena which is currently under construction at MVP colony is scheduled to be completed within two months. The sports arena covers is being built in 1.27 acres of land. The project was first proposed in 2019 and the works related to the project began in March, 2020. Once it is ready and open, it will be one of the main sports arenas in the city. It will be suitable for hosting all kinds of national and international sporting events.
The construction works of the arena had to be stalled due to the pandemic but now the works resumed and the construction is almost coming to an end.
Even though Vizag has other indoor pitches and a cricket ground, this sports arena will be one of the exclusive facilities for hosting international sports events. What separates this sports arena from the rest is that it is incorporated in line with the GRIHA (Green Integrated Habitat Assessment) classification.
Solar power plant with 15 kilowatts capacity will be installed on the top of the sports arena. It will also have a 60 kiloliter water tank to uninterrupted water supply.
The sports arena will have a basketball court, football court, volleyball court, yoga rooms, swimming pool, and boxing rooms. It will also have a gallery with a seating capacity of 300 people with folding chairs that can be folded after the event. The arena will have two swimming pools, one for children and one for adults.
The indoor sports arena will be a two storey building with activities on the ground floor and accommodations on the second floor. A dormitory, rest area, accommodation for players and changing rooms will also be provided.
