Beach Stadium

GOPARK, the indoor amusement park in Bagnolo San Vito is enriched with a new and important structure that will make the Mantova Sud area a complete and exclusive “citadel of sport and wellbeing”. As well as the largest, modern indoor Kartodromo in Europe, a SPA for care and wellbeing, a meeting and congresses centre, a bar/restaurant, 2 artificial turf football pitches, BEACH STADIUM is the now the newest addition.

It is a futuristic indoor structure with a strong architectural impact (more than 4000 mq of covered surfaces), that houses emerging sports that utilize sand (beach tennis, beach volley, rugby, football); next to it will be an indoor artificial turf football pitch. A connecting area will be used as an area for greeting, relaxing, other services and large changing rooms.

It is one of the few facilities of its kind in Italy and around the world that grants the chance to play summer sports all year round. The sand pitches are warmed with a floor heating system that makes the playing area comfortable and welcoming even during the winter.

The tensile structure is made with 5 mt tall perimetrical walls that are partially transparent to enhance the area with widespread internal natural lighting and an efficient recirculation of natural air. It will be held up by 5 enormous metal arches (40 mt from the base up to more than 20 mt tall – like a 7 story building), placed 15 mt between them, and will house as mentioned earlier, 4 sand pitches and an artificial turf regulation football pitch.

The facility was designed in accordance with national regulation in terms of resistance to snow and wind, as indicated by NTC2008.
The covering membrane is made with a very high quality textile with PVDF treatment, cut and designed a computerized software operating with millimetric detail. The main peculiarity of the structure is no-doubt the shape: the membrane in fact, is more than 7000 mq large and is suspended in just 15 points.

At each suspending point is a turntable (large disk) that is anchored to the arches by means of a system of connecting rods made of steel. The suspenders are capable of withstanding a vertical load (wind and snow) of approximately 50.000 kg.
The membrane is tensioned at its perimeter with a system of ropes and a tensioning system tied to a platform beam. This beam is braced externally every 3 mt with steel rods and tensioners.

During the construction of this facility, already described as a “jewel of engineering and architecture”, a significant amount of attention was directed towards the environment, thanks to the use of renewable sources of energy, specifically thermo and photovoltaic panels autonomously produce energy completely for the hot water and sand heating system, the greeting area and the sanitary water services.

The Beach Stadium will encourage the practice of sand related sports that are arousing excitement for a growing number of people, for courses with qualified instructors, for children and schools but especially for high rank tournaments collaborating with sporting associations in the local area.
