Outdoor sports accommodations
Papendal is continuously in motion. The High Performance Centre is practically unrecognisable for people who have not visited us for several years. Much has changed. Accommodations have been renewed. The addition of the Arnhemhal meant a big step forward in the field of indoor sports facilities. But we do not stand still with our outdoor accommodations either. You will find all of our outdoor facilities listed on this page. From athletics track to football fields.
Not solely elite athletes use our top facilities. We welcome sports clubs as well. Do you want more information about renting a football field or tennis court? Contact us to discuss possibilities and rates (+31(0)26 483 4555).
Our blue athletics track is 400m long. This track is surrounded by softer red and green tracks. Very suitable for warm-up and cool-down. Next to the 400m track, is another 100m sprint track with a gradient of 3%.
The Rock Garden is located next to the athletics track and is part of the mountain bike track. Mountain bikers can train their technical skills at the Rock Garden.
The archery accommodation consists of six shooting lanes with a maximum of 90 metres. With bad weather, the hand archers remain inside and shoot outside through a hatch.
The construction of the BMX track was realised in 2011. At the time, the track was a copy of the Olympic track in London. In 2016, the track was adapted to the design for the Games in Rio de Janeiro. The BMX World Cup is organised annually @Papendal.
We have a total number of eight football fields. Five of which Vitesse uses for the junior teams and the first team. The other three football fields, of which two with grass and one with artificial grass, can be used for training camps.
We have four tennis courts on the property. Three gravel courts and one hard court. Tennis players can rent these courts. Currently, the courts are only used by recreational tennis players.
