Efforts by Geroskipou Municipality, the Paphos tourism marketing board and hotels in the area to keep the  Olympic Swimming pool open in February 2019 are delivering results with more than 180 swimmers already confirming that they will be coming to Cyprus to train that month.

The swimmers are from Austria, France, Sweden and the UK, the Paphos tourism marketing board said, with keen interest also shown for March and April, both by international teams and individual swimmers.

“Gereskipou swimming pool can generate hundreds of overnight stays in the wider area and contribute to combating seasonality and establishing Paphos further as a destination for sports tourism,” it said.

Keeping the swimming pool open all year remains a priority and there are hopes that this can be achieved in 2019, it added.
