Hawkes­bury In­door Sta­dium Facelift

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Community News -

Hawkes­bury In­door Sta­dium in South Wind­sor has had a facelift thanks to Coun­cil fund­ing and co­or­di­nat­ing a full ex­ter­nal paint job, cladding re­newal, awnings, rain­wa­ter sys­tems and a new main switch­board.

The works were com­pleted over the past 12 months with around $115,000 spent on the im­prove­ments.

Hawkes­bury In­door Sta­dium is owned by Coun­cil and man­aged and op­er­ated by YMCA NSW.

The Sta­dium is a great place to get fit and healthy, ac­cord­ing to the Mayor of Hawkes­bury, Coun­cil­lor Mary Lyons-Buck­ett.

“Hawkes­bury In­door Sta­dium is our lo­cal com­mu­nity recre­ation cen­tre that of­fers in­door sports such as basketball, net­ball, soc­cer, and even a multi-sports pro­gram,” the Mayor said.

“It also of­fers recre­ational gym­nas­tics, hol­i­day sports clin­ics, space for events, mar­ket stalls, na­tional, state and lo­cal sport­ing tour­na­ments.

“As well as get­ting fit, join­ing means you stay­ing con­nected, so you can go in for ex­er­cise but also stay for a chat and en­joy a snack at the cafe,” she said.

YMCA funds and op­er­ates Bright­side, a pro­gram which pro­motes ex­er­cise as a re­cov­ery mech­a­nism for peo­ple with a men­tal ill­ness. The Sta­dium also runs reg­u­larly its own SportA­bil­ity pro­grams which are sports clin­ics aimed for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties.

The Sta­dium also has an out­door din­ing area with shade sail to en­joy the spring weather, as well as a car park with night light­ing.
