SANTO DOMINGO.- The President of the Organizing Committee of the XXV Central American and Caribbean Games, journalist José P. Monegro, and officials of the Ministry of Sports, supervised the rehabilitation works of the racquetball pavilion that will be used for the sub-headquarters of the San Salvador 2023 Games next June.
Monegro was accompanied by the Vice-Minister of Engineering and Infrastructure of the Ministry of Sports, Jhonny Peña, who explained the dimensions of the works being carried out and expressed his commitment to speed them up.
They were received by the President of the Dominican Racquetball Federation, Rafael Fernández, who said that when the work is completed, this facility will be able to host, in addition to the Central American and Caribbean Games, any international event of this discipline.
He explained that the areas that are being intervened are the sanitary and electrical system, the lights, roof, floors and air conditioning, a system that has been in operation since the 2003 Pan American Games.
The pavilion’s eight courts have the capacity to hold 700 people on its two levels.
For the Central American and Caribbean Games, San Salvador 2023, from June 24 to July 1, between 48 to 60 athletes will compete in the single, double and double mixed modalities, both for men and women.
Fernández explained that the most critical point in the racquetball pavilion is the replacement of the backboards of the eight courts, but he was confident that in the next few weeks work will be done in this phase while the infrastructure is being completed.
Monegro explained that they have begun the phase of accelerating the work of adapting and repairing the facilities of the seven disciplines that will be played in Santo Domingo as a sub-venue for the XXIV Central American and Caribbean Games, San Salvador 2023.
“We have been coordinating with the Minister of Sports, Francisco Camacho, because due to bureaucratic situations inherent to the public administration this facility has not yet been completed even though it is quite advanced,” said Monegro.
