Sports centre a hive of activity

THE sports centre had a very busy weekend. North Coast futsal training was held on Saturday morning and academy basketball all day, followed by the Vikings game on Saturday night. On Sunday the Grafton Netball Association conducted some of its carnival matches at the sports centre.

This weekend will be even busier. The Northern NSW Junior League basketball will fill the complex as well as the high school MPC for both days from 8am on Saturday and 8am on Sunday. The normal competition and schools start again on Monday morning.

The sports centre is the busiest it has ever been and the rent to council is expected to exceed $13,000 this month. A lot of hours.

Competitions are winding down for this term, but planning is well under way in all competitions for the next school term .

With hockey and futsal expected to move outdoors next term the stadium will have more court time for other sports. Unisex netball and multi sports are both expected to get off the ground in term two.
