Indoor Sports Gymnasium Opens at the International School of Samui Campus

The International School of Samui (ISS) has in 2016 seen the opening of a state-of-the-art indoor air-conditioned gymnasium.

stadium 1The new sports hall is an exciting development for the island as the spacious hall offers year-round use for ISS students of ISS and is a welcome resource for community sports programs.

The hall caters for numerous activities including badminton, netball, basketball, 5 a-side football and volleyball. Furthermore, gymnastics classes, martial arts and dance programs are offered on a daily basis by professional coaches. There is currently a Saturday Futsal (Brazilian skills-based football) Academy run by an experienced coach.

stadium 2The new sports hall has also become an important resource for ISS pupils focusing on team sports and sports competitions in a safe, clean and climate controlled environment. The gymnasium offers a bright and airy facility which readily fits into the International School of Samui’s enriching environment.

The sports hall is built to European standard and the flooring is made from a polyurethane structural layer that is strong, durable and free of mercury, lead and heavy metals.

The gym’s floor offers a professional level of shock absorption which greatly enhances performance. The highly shock absorbent flooring has many advantages including reduction of risk of injury to athletes making it an excellent alternative to standard hardwood flooring.

Stadium 3The new hall is now open to sports teams outside school hours and at weekends. Furthermore the facility can be hired by the hour for children or adult activities and sport clubs. Unlike any other facility on the island, it opens up a multitude of opportunities to the Koh Samui community, be it local or expat. To see the current schedule please contact the school or visit the school website: www.iss.ac.th/parentportal/afterschool

The hall can be hired after school hours by groups at a cost of THB 1200 Baht per hour, which includes an on-site security guard. Restrooms, showers and changing facilities are available within the school premises and ample parking is available in the adjacent car park. To reserve email: activities@iss.ac.th

Furthermore, the very popular ‘Healthy Snack Shack Café’ will be open out of school hours, offering a range of snacks and beverages.
