In said championship, the women's team was left out of the fight for the medals, classifying third in their group with the same points as the Belgian team but with a worse goal difference. This was the seed that made it possible for a total of 115 athletes to pass through this space the following year, of which 61 were women who trained under the orders of the best professionals of the moment.
Over the years, an ambitious cycle of works has been completed in this sports facility that has transformed it into a great center for the practice and training of hockey. Thus, in 2007, two 101x63 m artificial grass pitches were inaugurated, with lighting, automatic irrigation and joint stands, complete with changing rooms, study rooms, physiotherapy and maintenance, all in two modules coupled to the stands. Likewise, a third field of artificial grass was built, measuring 20 x 40 meters with a small grandstand, for the initiation of the Escuela de Benjamines. The work was completed with an office building and parking.
The effort made by the Community, the work of the Federation's technicians and the support of the Madrid clubs bore fruit. More and more players from Madrid joined the national teams of lower categories (Under-21 and Under-18), previously taken over by players from other Communities. Specifically, during 2007, eight players were part of the national teams and the total number of hockey licenses in our Community rose to 1.137, well above previous years.
To promote the modernization of this sport, the Community built a covered pavilion of 1.260 m2 with a 20 x 40 m track, made with a synthetic pavement surface, conditioned with light, heating and changing rooms. This space is used for training and indoor hockey matches. The facility, fully air-conditioned, also has a 118-seat grandstand, and incorporates a flat, translucent roof that provides great natural lighting, with the consequent energy savings.
