Shaoxing in East China's Zhejiang province will open its Asian Games venues to the public on July 1, local media reported on June 10.
The venues are the Keqiao Yangshan Sport Climbing Center, the Shaoxing Baseball & Softball Sports Center, the Shaoxing Olympic Sports Center Gymnasium, the China Textile City Sports Center Gymnasium, and the Shaoxing Keqiao Jianhu Football Pitch.
Apart from the host city of Hangzhou, Shaoxing will host the largest number of events during the Games, which was originally scheduled for September and has been postponed indefinitely.
Organizers have proposed that each venue should establish a long-term operation and maintenance team, and upgrade facilities and equipment to ensure that the venue will meet the requirements of the Games.
Venues designed to host elite competitions can hire professional teams to run the venues and maintain facilities and equipment. It's anticipated these venues will offer sports-related experience activities to the public.
