Sports Arena

The sports hall was opened on August 1, 2023, and is in full use.

There are still some available time slots in various sports facilities, for example, for sports clubs. Contact us if you are interested. The facilities are available for use in the following ways:

  • Athletics (200m circular track and all performance areas)
  • Floorball / futsal / handball (3 courts)
  • Basketball (2 courts)
  • Gymnastics (High space, upper gallery, lower gallery)

The athletics hall in the sports complex operates on a similar logic to a swimming hall. With season and series passes, individuals can independently practice and engage in activities when the athletics hall is not reserved for club use (which is the majority of the time).

Basic principles of use

  • Entry is only through the main door, opposite Leppävaara Stadium
  • The so called dirty area which is the outdoor shoe area, is only in the café. After that, outdoor shoes are removed, and you proceed either with indoor shoes or in socks
  • Changing rooms are open and unlocked
  • There are lockable lockers in the hall for personal use with your own padlock.
  • Access control at the boundary of the hall, for example, you can freely enter the warm-up area
  • Parking spaces are shared with the sports park. Using a navigator, the address “Vanha Maantie 15” guides you to the parking lot, or “Veräjäpellonkatu 17
  • The sports park is an area for light traffic, so it’s about a 150-meter walk from the parking lot to the hall
  • Public transportation provides versatile access to Leppävaara city center, from where it’s a one-kilometer walk/jog to Kameleonten hall
