The iconic Centennial Parklands Sports Centre recently underwent a complete upgrade of its playing surfaces and amenities, which was focussed on supporting grass-roots sport across multiple genres including tennis, netball, basketball, soccer and golf.
Last night, the Sport Centre took home the award for best ‘Sport Surfaces’ at the Australian Sport, Recreation and Play Industry Awards hosted by The National Sports Convention in Melbourne.
At the heart of the vision to revitalise what was previously an outdated Sports Centre was to provide grass-roots sports with a vibrant, inclusive and welcoming space which also benefits the greater community. The revamp not only supports local players but provides a whole new way to engage and encourage new users which creates more opportunities to improve the health and lifestyle of the people of Sydney.
With over 180,000 visitors each year, the Sport Centre is a vibrant hub of activity that supports over 150 schools that visit the precinct each year and the 16,000 hours of sport that are played in the area!
