With the recent culmination of the Rio Olympics and the success of judokas Yarden Gerbi and Ori Sasson, the topic of sports has entered the limelight in Israeli media. It is time, then, to evaluate the sports venues and resources in Jerusalem and Israel’s other major cities.The most updated statistics regarding the national construction of sports venues in different cities is from 2009, and is published by the Sports Authority under the Culture and Sport Ministry. It is important to note that significant additions to sports venues have been made since these data were collected; for example, the Sami Ofer Stadium in Haifa, the Arena in Jerusalem, and the Shlomo Group Arena (formerly the Drive In Cinema) in Tel Aviv were completed as recently as 2014. The Sports Authority’s records include a diversity of sports venues, consisting of futsal fields, school gyms, tennis courts, swimming pools, and larger arenas.According to these data, Haifa maintained a total of 206 sports facilities, Rishon Lezion maintained 159, Tel Aviv-Jaffa 449, and Jerusalem 640. We can examine the relative prevalence of sports structures in each city by evaluating the proportion of sports structures to population. Looking at the number of sports structures available to each 10,000 residents, we discover that in 2009, Tel Aviv had the highest rate, at 10.5 sports structures per 10,000 residents, while Rishon Lezion had only 6.6 sports structures per 10,000 residents.
