Letter to the editor

It's so great to see so much use for the amazing new sports centre in the evenings and at the weekends.  What a great fit-out. So many things going on with kids and adults alike.

Much more to come too, as new pitches and the swimming pool gradually come on line.

Particularly impressive is the “Sport 10” initiative where mixed teams of friends or colleagues meet up each Monday night to battle in a round robin competition showcasing a different sport each week, with volunteers helping out with marshalling for their particular sport.

When it is over please repeat or replace.

The opportunity that the Sports Centre offers is certainly getting a lot of us off the couch.

Seeing bearded plumbers in netball outfits was a particular highlight.

At any one time there have been about 65 vehicles parked outside and we’re not talking freedom campers.

Loving actually being able to park somewhere with space as well.

Keep up the good work QLDC. Keep those initiatives coming.  

Keep adding on to accommodate as many sports clubs as possible and don’t worry about school o’clock quiet periods - that's just the way it is.

I’m sure the QLDC would be receptive to ideas which could fill in that daytime void. How did we manage without a Sports Centre again?
