Marbella after school activities

Kids are back in school and we are all slowly getting into our routines. However, you are not quite done yet. The kids are looking to join in sports, dance, art or some other activity after school. Extra-curricular activities are a great way to burn off some stress from school, stay fit, and expand horizons.

There are plenty of clubs to choose from in Marbella, so you’ll soon find that there are not enough days in the week to do everything that your child may want to do. There are activities in Spanish, English and often times mixed.

If your child is a native English speaker, it is best to encourage your children to participate in Spanish speaking activities. Not only do they get to meet other children from outside of their school group, but they have the added benefit of learning Spanish the easy way – through play.

All you need to do is look through our list of after school activities and soon you’ll realize that your children have a bigger social life than you do.

For more after school activities go to our main Schools & Clubs page as well as our Schools, Camps & Clubs Family Forum.

In addition to these options you will find many activities offered at your local community center. The largest ones are the Polideportivo San Pedro and the Polideportivo Marbella.

• We have tried the Polideportivo San Pedro and can recommend it. It has excellent facilities, easy parking, and classes for ages 4 – 17 depending on the activity. Some of the activities that are offered include:

Track & Field
Indoor football
Outdoor football
Rhythmic gymnastics
Physical Education

You can find the dates and times on their website. Not all of the activities are posted on the site so it is best to go to your local community center to find out exact details.

If you are interested in signing up for an activity at the Polideportivo San Pedro, it is best to get there early in September as places fill up quickly. The activities are subsidized so the prices are very reasonable…around 8 - 10 euro per semester. If you are not registered as a resident (empadronado), then the prices are slightly higher at about 16 - 20 euro per semester. You won't find better value than this anywhere else. Parents of large families will get an additional 30% off on any activity. This applies to the third child and up.

To sign up for an activity in San Pedro you will need to go to the Palacio de los Deportes de San Pedro de Alcántara at Avda. Fuente Nueva, s/n. 29670 – San Pedro Alcántara
Tel. 952 799 508 or 952 780 633.
You will need to fill out an inscription form and bring a copy of your DNI /NIE and a social security card or private insurance card.

Marbella Polideportivo: Check the website for the activity schedule and contact information. Sign ups can be made at their offices in central Marbella on the edge of the Old Town Marbella where the public parking lot is next to the La Pesquera restaurant. Their address is Calle de los Caballeros 25, 1st floor.
Telephone: 952 761 190.
Offices are open from 9:00am – 2:30pm. Closed in the afternoon until 4:30pm-9:30pm. For swimming classes, check the Antonio Serrano Lima Pool in Marbella.
