Greater range of entertainment and sports programs for Queanbeyan Indoor Sports Centre

The Queanbeyan Indoor Sports Centre will be upgraded in March 2016 to allow a wider range of programs and entertainment activities to be delivered.

The upgrades were endorsed by Council in December 2015 when a business plan for the centre was adopted and will see the courts resurfaced and a new netting structure/layout installed.

The upgrades will enhance a number of sports currently on offer at the centre and will see entertainment activities include bubble football, archery tag, inflatables and birthday parties become available, along with specialised programs for young children and seniors.

“This is an exciting step forward for the Queanbeyan Indoor Sports Centre and will allow us to offer the community a greater range of sports and entertainment options,” Council’s Manager Community Business, Mr Daniel Fulton said.

“The inclusion of programs for young children and seniors will allow us to maximise use of the centre during business hours when the centre has previously not been used.

“The current season will wind up in late February and the upgrades will be undertaken in March. The centre will be closed during this period, before we relaunch the newly branded-business in April 2016.”

The Queanbeyan Indoor Sports Centre, which is a Council-owned asset, was previously managed by a private company until September 2014 when Council assumed management of the facility.

The adoption of the Business Plan will see the courts and nets refurbished to allow a greater range of activities, a revised program implemented and employment of a full time program coordinator.

The centre will still continue to offer netball and junior and senior soccer competitions, with the tri-sports competition under review. Due to the changes to the netting, senior cricket will no longer be offered, however discount rates at nearby ACT facilities have been secured for teams.
