A final message to our stadium users

The disruption of our stadium programs caused by this current health alert has been a challenging time for us all, with our staff missing the many users who would normally enjoy visiting us each week.  

While there will understandably be some changes from the way our programs and competitions have run in the past, we are just as committed to ensuring that everyone has a safe, fun and enjoyable experience with us.

It’s wonderful to be in a position to start welcoming everyone back, and we look forward to seeing plenty of smiling faces very soon.

Further information will continue to be released via our social media pages and website, and we encourage anyone with further questions to contact us via email at

Until we see you next, take care and stay safe.
