Jiao Liuyang’s swimming club is the latest first-class sports facility to open for employees

Olympic gold has come to Midea Group HQ as Jiao Liuyang opens the latest of her highly-successful swimming clubs. The brand-new facility boasts a heated 50-meter swimming pool and is located just a few minutes’ walk away from the HQ building, making it perfect for employees looking for a quick swim before work or even at lunch time.


The coaching line-up at Jiao Liuyang Swimming Club is led by the Olympic champion herself who won gold at London 2012 in the 200m Butterfly as well as a further gold at the World Championships and three golds at the Asian Games. Also coaching at the swimming club is Nina Yao, winner of three gold medals at the 2014 World Military Championships in Zurich and also part of the Chinese swimming team at the World Swimming Championships in Barcelona in 2013, and Jiayun Li, 800m Freestyle Champion at the World University Championship and 200m Freestyle Champion at the Guangdong Championship.


Whether for those looking to learn to swim or experience swimmers wishing to get in a few laps, the Jiao Liuyang Swimming Club is a welcome addition. The brand-new facility is just the latest in first-class sports facilities available in and around Midea Group HQ.

Located directly above the Jiao Liuyang Swimming Club is Mar Show Fitness. The ultra-modern gym offers all brand-new equipment while also running regular HIIT, aerobics, pilates, yoga, and a wide range of dance classes. The third-floor gym also boasts a fantastic view of ALSO Space and Midea Group HQ, which visitors can enjoy while using the running machines or rowing machines.


The sprawling HQ Innovation Center is also home to the top-class Kangti Sports Center. There, staff can make the most of the warm climate and swim outdoors at the 50-meter pool during the summer months. The Kangti Sports Center also has its own gym that consists of a wide range of equipment as well as three dance studios and a yoga room where classes are regularly held for staff.


The Kangti Sports Center is also great for those looking to join in with some team sports. The full-size football pitch is made of 4G grass so that matches can play in all weather conditions while indoors there is a huge badminton hall with 24 courts that are full of players every night of the week.


Whatever someone’s sporting interests, the chances are that they can find it at the Kangti Sports Center as there are also 3 basketball courts where hotly-contested pick-up games can be found most evenings as well as tennis courts that are particularly popular in the cooler months.


From Olympic champion swimming clubs and outdoor pools for the summer to giant badminton halls and all-weather football pitches, there is something for every colleague to enjoy at Midea Group HQ.
