The Raksila Sports Centre is a meeting place for both top athletes and sports fans. The centre is built around the Energia Arena (home to the Oulun Kärpat ice hockey team), a large Finnish baseball stadium, and the Oulu Hall indoor sports arena. For those wishing to keep fit, Raksila offers skiing, swimming, fitness training, ice skating, and indoor ball games right near the centre of Oulu.
Most hotels have gyms for guests, and the area also has several private gyms. There are municipal gyms at the Linnanmaa Sports Centre, Oulu Hall, Oulu Swimming Pool, and Oulu City Sports Centre (Urheilutalo), which also has courts for indoor ball games.
You can also spend all day playing tennis, squash and table tennis at Nallisport. The centre offers everything from floorball and futsal to winter golf.
At Oulu’s SuperPark, you can try out a wide variety of sports in the Game Arena and Freestyle Hall, or get moving with the Hevisaurus and Duudsonit activities.
