Subic revs up for summer

On land or in the sea, Subic Bay has it this summer.

This was how the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) painted the coming months as it gears up the sporting and tourist facilties here in preparation for the summer season.

“Subic is known for its unique blend of business and leisure. But this summer, we’ll be outdoing ourselves,” Marcelo said. “Tourists can forego some of the usual activities at the beach and forest trails so they can enjoy the more exciting sports activities,” he added.

According to Marcelo, watching is good, but joining the sports events 'is way better.'

Among the top sporting events scheduled this summer are the Tour of Luzon Street 6 and the Terry Larrazabal Bike Festival; the First Subic Experience Travel Card National Badminton Open; and the 2010 edition of the true-blue Filipino bike “Padyak Pinoy” bike competition.

Other activities include the Beach Football Tournament organized by the Beach Football Association of the Philippines (BFAP); 2010 SBMA Jet Ski Cup Series and a sport fishing tournament at the newly constructed container terminal.

Subic is now among the favorite venues of sports organizers for local and international events like the Asian Duathlon Championships, Subic Adventure Race, Taekwondo Open Championships, Bike Festival Asia, and Smart Communications’ Subic International Marathon.

“If you want peace and quiet, you can find that in Subic still. But if you want action and adrenaline-pumping events, then Subic is also the place for you this summer season,” he added. (30)
