This was made possible through the support of the Ministry of Defence and as a result of cooperation between Ludza City Council and JSC UPB. The investments into the construction of the sports hall reached 4.2 mln lats. The arena includes 300 seats for spectators. The training building with 12 study rooms is intended for the needs of Ludza Secondary School No.2; the extension is connected to the school building.
The new sports arena will be a venue for various level competitions and training camps. It will be open during the whole week, including weekends and late evening hours.
The arena will also house a handball centre with the objective to organize a high-level instructional and training process.
