As winter settles in, the fitness vibe is heating up in Keqiao district, Shaoxing, coupled with a slew of national-level events hosted in the region.

The China Textile City Sports Center, a key venue at last year's Hangzhou Asian Games, continues its role as the home court of the Zhejiang Golden Bulls, who currently rank second in the Chinese Basketball Association League.

The success of the Hangzhou Asian Games has positioned Keqiao as a regional sports hub. Transitioning into the "post-Asian Games" era, Keqiao is utilizing the "Asian Games legacy" to establish itself as a "City of Sporting Events."

The Yangshan Climbing Center is undertaking the development of an international climbing sports theme park, featuring top-level competitions, training programs, educational tours for students, and leisure tourism.

Keqiao has signed strategic cooperation agreements with entities such as the General Administration of Sport of China, aiming to position the city as a premier domestic and globally recognized center for climbing events.

The Jianhu Lake Soccer Training Ground, having fulfilled its role in supporting Asian Games soccer events, remains open to the public. Soccer enthusiasts are now fortunate to have access to Asian Games-standard facilities in their local vicinity.
