University of São Paulo: USP sports complex in the capital will reopen on Sundays for the university community

The USP Sports Practice Center (Cepeusp) will reopen for leisure and sports activities on Sundays from March 13th. There are approximately 515,000 square meters with an infrastructure that includes grass soccer fields, a sand soccer field, a multipurpose space, changing rooms, a snack bar, an athletics track, a velodrome, outdoor and indoor courts, tennis courts and an Olympic lane. To attend the space it is necessary to be part of the USP community: students, employees and professors of the University, in addition to dependents who have a card.

Despite the sun and heat at the beginning of the month, it will not be possible to visit the Cepê pools as the aquatic complex is closed for a renovation in the engine room, equipment responsible for filtering, treating and pumping water. Parque Esporte para Todos, a space close to the campus town hall formed by a trail of about 1,000 meters, in an environment of Atlantic forest, will also remain closed for the time being.
