The Bases Conversion and Development Authority believes the New Clark City Aquatic Center in Capas, Tarlac will be a perfect venue to hold world-class tournaments.
And the staging of the Asian Age Group Swimming Championships there from 3 to 14 December will attest to the claim of BCDA senior vice president for Corporate Services Group Arrey Perez.
“I am proudly saying that these facilities are well-maintained. The BCDA has learned from past events to make the experience from athletes, the audience, stakeholders and the media experience the games on a higher standard,” Perez said.
“If we do this, we’re not just talking of Asian-level championships but also world championships as well.”
The New Clark City Aquatic Center was first used for the 30th Southeast Asian Games in 2019.
The 12,796 square meter-wide facility was also used for the training camp of the Israel national swimming team in 2021 for the Tokyo Olympics.
Perez assured everybody that those going to New Clark City will have a seamless time while the competition is taking place.
“The Aquatics Center is in harness for the championships — from the competition aspect to the accommodation and other organizational needs of the delegates,” Perez said.
“The delegates — athletes, officials, chaperones and tourists — will be having a convenient time at the New Clark City with the opening of the newest airport terminal in Clark and the new roads from the airport in Clark.”
