The comprehensive gymnasium can also accommodate exhibitions and entertainment shows, and will host sports games in the future. The training hall can be used for badminton, basketball and table tennis training.

The center is a smart venue covered by a 5G network and is equipped with a digital twin (a virtual representation that serves as the real-time digital counterpart of a physical object or process). To provide visitors with safe, efficient use of the facilities and services, state-of-the-art features are provided by the center, including a smart seat-finding system, body temperature monitoring devices, a smart drowning detection system, virtual guides on information screens and a facial recognition access system.

Currently, a sports-themed illustration exhibition is being held at the corridor near Gate No. 2 of the center through Aug. 18. The illustrators use painting aesthetics to show the power and charm of sports as well as the beauty of Chinese culture and world civilization.

Locals can book their visit on the “i深圳” app, a one-stop booking function for more than 1,300 sports venues across the city. Or you can simply follow the WeChat account “WenhuaLonghua” and then click “一键预约” on the menu to book your visit to any sports and cultural venue in Longhua.
