nsc1.jpg (4651 bytes)The hub of the 2001 Games will be the 20million National Sports Centre complex in Douglas. Phase 2A of the project, incorporating an 8 lane x 25 metre single depth competition pool, opened to the public in January 1998 and the next phase, including a 44 metre international sports hall, was handed over in late May almost two months ahead of schedule. Mike Ball, the Island's Director of Leisure, explained:

However, before 2001 we have a further phase planned. This will incorporate a second sports hall and will mean that more sports can be staged within the central venue."
