Welcome to Enjoy Sports in Valkeakoski

Valkeakoski is an ideal place for people keen on sports. In Valkeakoski, you can practice nearly all sports known in the Finnish sports culture. The majority of the sports services the town offers, are free of charge. There are over 150 registered indoor and outdoor sports places and 89 sports clubs in our town. In addition to clubs, the city also organises activities, such as swimming courses and keep-fit classes.

The swimming hall is a popular recreation facility for people of all ages. The fee for adults is 5,00 e and for children 2,50 e. The right to use the well-equipped gym, indoor swimming pools and the shower and sauna facilities are included in the price.

In the winter, Korkeakangas Skiing Centre is the place where you can downhill ski at reasonable prices. Cross-country skiing is free of charge, and the tracks in Korkeakangas are always in good condition. Some other fine tracks you can find in the northern part of the town, in the area of Roukko/Eerola. During summertime, the tracks are available for jogging and walking in the nature.

The great ice arena, Wareena, was built in 1998. You can skate there during public hours on Saturday mornings between 8:00 and 10:00 am and on Sundays from 8:00 am to 9:00 am and from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm at a price of 2,00 e. There are also numerous outdoor skating rinks in Valkeakoski, one just beside Wareena and others around the town. Skating outdoors is free of charge.

For almost every possible sport, there is at least one club or association in Valkeakoski. If you wish to join them, you can contact the club directly.
