Landal Resort 'Het Vennebos'

Jam-packing the best of all sports into one game-changing sports field

Novelty is everything for Landal luxury vacation rentals – spreading over 53 acres. Every year, the park sets out to reward and incentivize returning customers. Hence, in 2011 they decided to get the radically innovative Yalp Toro sports arena installed.

This fast-paced, multi-purpose sports arena with four interactive goals was specially developed for those with limited space, yet wanting maximum bang for their buck. Martijn Evers, Fun & Entertainment manager at Landal, explains: “We have over 2500 guests and 3000 daily visitors using our tropical swimming pools, mini-golf, and bowling alleys. To keep them coming back, we wanted to offer them something unique, something other parks don’t have. After consulting with Yalp, we ended up going for the Yalp Toro.”

Continuous play

Martijn continues: “The sports arena is placed as an eye-catcher, near our other sports facilities. The Yalp Toro has it hit off very well with the younger generation, especially those between the ages of 8 and 16. Our team organizes and supervises daily tournaments, which any kid can join. Of course, the sports arena also gets used a lot even when no tournaments are going on. We’re calling these tournaments “SportsPlaza,” by the way. The Yalp Toro gives our guests a novel experience, free of charge.”

“Even in the winter, it gets played a lot. It’s February now, and this month’s statistics show almost 7 hours of continuous play – per day! That is absolutely amazing. We had our initial doubts about potential vandalism, but it’s extremely rugged. We are thrilled with our investment. On the other hand, we could have gotten more out of it by placing advertisements on the boarding. Perhaps something we’ll look into at some point. In any case, the field is an absolute success.”
