Fitness & Tennis Center (FTC)
As part of our commitment to educating the whole child, we opened our Fitness and Tennis Center (FTC) in 2013. The FTC comprises two purpose-built sports domes that cover an area of more than 8,500 square meters, providing ample space for a wide variety of activities. The FTC/Domes make year-round physical education and sports opportunities a reality for all ISB students.
Elementary students are assured of spacious and well-outfitted areas for play during recess times, every single day of the school year. The domes contain a five-a-side soccer pitch, a 400-meter running track, a large multipurpose activities area, and six full-sized tennis courts. At one end, the domes open into a two-story fitness center with purpose-built dance and wushu studios and split-level gym. The domes are equipped with air-filtration and heat-recovery systems to control the ambient temperature and ensure clean air for athletes, making sports such as soccer, tennis and athletics possible throughout the year.
During the school day, the domes are used by physical education teachers of all levels for a range of classes, as well as by coaches and team members. In the Elementary School, many teachers use the multi-purpose area, the indoor soccer pitch and indoor track. Middle School and High School students participating in their fitness units make use of the new fitness room. Our tennis and badminton courts provide ample practice area for tennis classes and for the school's competitive teams.
On weekends or after school hours in the absence of student activities, the FTC is available for recreational use by all students, staff and parents in the ISB community.
The FTC complements ISB's other sports venues, including four fully-equipped gymnasiums (one with a climbing wall), baseball and softball diamonds, two full-sized turf soccer practice fields, and an aquatics center with a 25-meter pool and diving boards.
The FTC's tennis and badminton courts can also be booked online with the venue's managing partner Sports Beijing. Please log in to Dragons' Gate to access the booking system.
