Tampere: Swimming Centre

Tampere Floorplan for Synchro
Pekka P. Paavola, Director of Sports

Welcome to Tampere to European Junior Synchro Championships!

City of Tampere welcomes all international participants and guests to European Junior Synchro Championships. The Championships will be held at Tampere Swimming Centre, which was built in 1979. In order to meet current standards, we have done a thorough renovation for the entire Swimming Centre and the renovation was completed in 2015. Our citizens long term aspiration has been fulfilled as an interconnected outdoor pool will be added to the Swimming Centre. The construction will be finalized in the summer of 2018 after which our community can enjoy the summer days not only by swimming in the lakes but also in an outdoor pool as well.

Tampere is an active host and organizer for sports and cultural events. We want to focus especially to youth activities, of which these European Junior Synchro Championships are a good example of. On behalf of City of Tampere, I sincerely hope that all our Championship guests enjoy their stay at Tampere and you will have a positive image of Tampere.

City of Tampere relys on the ability of Finnish Swimming Association and Tampereen Uinnin tuki ry to arrange excellent Championships where we, as hosting City, are pleased to safeguard the smooth completion of this competition.

Welcome to Tampere! Let’s enjoy the European Junior Synchro performances!
