Sportcampus Zuiderpark recently hosted the Invictus Games in The Hague, an international sporting event for injured servicemen and women.

The games, founded by Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, saw 20 nations and more than 500 participants gather to compete.

The Sportcampus building and surrounding park were transformed for nine sporting events, from athletics to wheelchair rugby, as well as fan zones and the opening and closing ceremonies.

Flexible facilities within the Sportcampus building were adapted for powerlifting and indoor rowing.

Associate Tony Barker, who attended the games, said ‘We designed Sportcampus as a dynamic and welcoming heart to the wider Zuiderpark, somewhere that would encourage more involvement in sport. The Invictus Games was the perfect event to showcase this – almost 100,000 people visited the park to celebrate the power of sport to inspire and revive.’

Since opening in 2017, Sportcampus has hosted many international sporting events including the Davis Cup this year. Later this month, the building will act as the meeting point for the International Association of Sports and Leisure Facilities (IAKS) conference on innovative indoor sports facilities.
