As with most country towns, sport is a huge part of most people’s weekly life. Whether it be typical Aussie sports like Aussie Rules footy, netball, basketball, tennis or cricket, or other sports like hockey, baseball, gymnastics, or swimming to name just a few, our weeks are filled with training, matches and meetings.
The Riverland is no exception. We have been blessed as a region to have a new Rec Centre in Berri, and now Loxton is preparing for a new one.
Loxton Waikerie Council are to be commended for their vision and direction for bringing this recreational facility to their council area.
The old basketball stadium and outdoor netball and tennis courts are being demolished, making way for a new larger stadium that will service many sporting clubs in the Riverland region.
Keep an eye out for more updates after Christmas.
