The İBB Yeşilvadi Sports Facility, which has a 1,4 meter deep and 20 meter long 3-lane training pool, two studio halls and a squash hall, has been renovated to serve disabled individuals. The physical structure of the facility was made suitable for the use of disabled individuals within the scope of accessibility studies carried out by Spor Istanbul, which is under the body of the IMM Directorate of Youth and Sports. All units of the facility, which started operating with a studio section in the first stage, will provide exercise and sports services to cover all disability groups after the pandemic.
6 SESSIONS SPORTS SERVICE EVERY DAY FOR 6 DAYS
Yeşilvadi Sports Facility was first opened to the use of disabled individuals with its studio section. The studios, where 6 sessions are held on a daily basis, are planned according to the level of disability, with 1 to 5 people attending each session.
Sessions at the facility are carried out with expert trainers to contribute to the development of disabled individuals. At the Yeşilvadi Sports Facility, which is open every day of the week except Friday, members who have been diagnosed with mental disabilities and have received self-care training can register.

POOL SESSIONS WILL START AFTER THE PANDEMIC

In the pool sessions that have not yet been given due to the epidemic, those with severe cerebral palsy, spina bifida, neuromuscular diseases (muscle diseases) will receive training from expert trainers in the specially designed hydrotherapy pool. Those who reach a certain level at the end of the training will be directed to the surrounding facilities within the scope of the inclusion program, and in this way, members will be transformed at the facility.
