Świdnica, located 55 kilometres away from host city Wrocław, will stage roller inline hockey and artistic roller skating at the 2017 World Games, it has been announced.
The two events are due to take place at the City Rink, which has a capacity of 800 people and will undergo renovation work in order to be ready for the Games next year.
The city is the fourth to be confirmed as staging events at the World Games outside of Wrocław, the largest city in western Poland.
Orienteering will be held in Trzebnica and while indoor rowing will take place in Jelcz-Laskowice.
Air sports, meanwhile, are due to be staged in Szymanów, a small village in the Lower Silesia area of the country.
“I am very pleased that the city joined our efforts to stage the best Games in history,” Wojciech Adamski, Wrocław's Vice-Mayor, said.
“It is very important for Wrocław, as the capital of the region, to have other municipalities involved in the process.
“We believe that The World Games will be a great festival of sports for the entire Lower Silesia.”
The announcement follows the third Sports Partners meeting of the 2017 World Games taking place at the headquarters of the Polish Olympic Committee (POC) in Warsaw, where the country's Ministry of Sport and Tourism threw their support behind the quadrennial event.
It was attended by various dignitaries including (POC) President Andrzej Kraśnick, Rafał Dutkiewicz, the Mayor of Wrocław, and International World Games Association chief executive Joachim Gossow.
Representatives of the 30 sports and disciplines on the programme also took part in the meeting.
Wrocław 2017 Organising Committee President Piotr Przygoński gave a detailed report on the city’s preparations for the event, organised for sports and disciplines within sports that are not currently on the Olympic programme.
“Taking into account the number of players, coaches, training staff and officials, which will attend the World Games and come to the City, this event is worth to be well organised,” Witold Bańka, Poland’s Minister for Sport and Tourism a member of Poland's gold medal-winning 4x400 metres relay team at the 2007 Universiade in Thailand, said.
“We are sure it will provide a measurable effect for the whole country and the whole of Polish sport.”
The 2017 World Games in the Polish city were originally due to be held from August 3 to 13 but were moved to July 20 to 30 in order to avoid a clash with the 2017 World Athletics Championships in London.
Wroclaw was awarded the Games in 2012, beating off opposition from Hungary's capital Budapest, now candidate city for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
