Palma Arena

The Palma Arena (also known in Spanish as Velodrome Palma) is a multisport pavilion of the city of Palma de Mallorca. Its main function is hosting indoor track cycling races on a banked track, and is one of the best equipped in Europe for this purpose. It was constructed under the auspices of Dutch architectural firm Sander Douma which specializes in indoor cycling venues, and was inaugurated in 2007 when it hosted the 2007 UCI Track Cycling World Championships. It has a capacity of 5,000 spectators.

On May 2, 2007 it staged the 'Battle of Surfaces' tennis match which saw Mallorca local and World No. 2 Rafael Nadal take on World No. 1 Roger Federer. This match was unique because one side of the court was clay - Nadal's speciality - and the other side was grass - Federer's speciality. The result was a push for Federer as he won equal points on both surfaces, but Nadal used the clay to his advantage in victory capturing 12 more points than he did on grass.
