The absolute Number one of all Tenerife sports is soccer.
The 2014 World cup is over and this time Spain wasn't the winner. That's also the end of The Hyundai park soccer frenzy. Its gigantic screen may perhaps serve for another sport or for the Santa Cruz Carnival thereafter.
Tenerife isn't short of different sports. However, a fitness center for weight lifting, equipment training and gymnastics is the only chosen one for many young people.
Many of those so called gyms are around. Pilatus fitness training has been popular for a while since 2009. A good one is below Hotel Puerto Palace Puerto de la Cruz right next to the Thai Restaurant of Puerto Cruz. Another one is conveniently located outside Playa Jardin at Bahia Jardin below Hotel Turqueza and Diamond Hotel Puerto de la Cruz.
A Karate Dojo which uses the Kyodaista style is connected to the Bahia gym.
The highly popular Casablanca Apartments Puerto de la Cruz have a very big center for fitness workout, a picture of which encounter there with name in Spanish. Tenerife yoga classes are advertised quite often, if you were regarding Yoga like a sport.
Depicted is a match of handball in March 2014. Middle age tourists seemed to have much fun. This was by Beach Punta Brava in Puerto de la Cruz. Handball which can be more controlled in a small area is an ideal team sport for seashores as well as for holidays. In this case, only men took part with a single woman that seemed to coach them.
The first tournament of Club Balonmano of Arona took place on May 09, 2015 with two age groups of youngsters that delighted passers-by. In that case both boy and girl teams from La Guancha and Arona were competing.
Very long Tenerife beaches would be needed to play football.. Even El Medano shores are not long enough, as not to molest other sports or sunbathers.

Winter sports are not yet on the agenda of Tenerife sports. Only Mount Teide and its huge collapsed crater have snow between about December and Easter. However, most of the volcanic terrain by Teide is not suited for any sports, except hiking, walking and friendly snowball fights. The location is also part of a fragile ecological system.
News in early 2014 announced the Tenerife Island government's intention to rectify the above mentioned facts. The construction of a snow piste for winter sports by Mount Teide is now being considered for the first time.
There is ice skating in winter on the modern, artificial lake by Plaza de España in Santa Cruz the Tenerife capital.
The same sport was possible near the Puerto de la Cruz Muelle in the past.
There are no Tenerife sports, such as figure skating and snow boarding either.
There, many pilots land often with their Flypa wings by the lighthouse car parking ground that is depicted above.
There, Tenerife golf with 18 holes is practiced by thousands of tourist. However, it's a British expat the old golfer who writes best about golfing and the many championships and events on the island. Tenerife's greens are so popular because the weather for them is so unbeatable and so are the locations, the designs and accommodation by its clubs.
An acquaintance of mine never forgot his motorbike tour which he did in the Canadas del Teide. The crater of Spains highest peak is also highly popular for walking and hiking while this most rewarding of Tenerife sports gets you to explore an island of immense diversity.
There is no professional horse riding in Tenerife nor are there international horse races. I have heard of a fun race with horses which took place during an Adeje Fiesta in 2013, though. Los Realejos also has horse races in April which is just for fun. It has also come to my notice that this hotel offers riding to tourists.
2012 news were made by the new sports center of Adeje called El Galéon. It hosts virtually almost all known latest trends of Tenerife sports, except for snow.
