The municipal gymnasium of Monastero Bormida, built with the contribution of the State as part of the "6000 bell towers" call for tenders and already active for school activities, officially opened its doors at the beginning of October 2019 thanks to the assignment of management to the Amateur Sports Association “Attiva-Mente Sport” of Nizza Monferrato.
The Association is composed of some young sports technicians who are graduates or have a degree in physical education, many of whom are involved in teaching, and are registered in the national register CONI.
Active since 2011, it deals with the performance of motor and sports activities during school and extra-curricular hours, also proposing to organize summer sports holidays dedicated to young people.
The Association proposes multidisciplinary sports start-up courses (soccer, volleyball, basketball), gymnastic courses for adults, fitness activities compatibly with structural limitations, yoga and spinning courses, sporting events, various types of tournaments in the gym. All in collaboration and synergy with local associations, as well as the involvement of people who already work in the area.
The building, spacious and welcoming, includes a large room for sports and minor activities for fitness, yoga and other disciplines.
It was built following the principles of energy containment, is equipped with solar and photovoltaic panels, underfloor heating and was recently completed with the installation of sound-absorbing panels to avoid the reverberation effect.
It is located within the large multi-sports area of Monastero Bormida, including the swimming pool, tennis courts and five-a-side football pitches, the playground, three beach volleyball courts, the sferisterio etc. and wants to represent an opportunity for the continuation of sports activities even in winter, when the practice outdoors is necessarily limited by weather conditions.
