Facilities support rising Flagstone sports stars
The Flagstone community can lead a more active and healthy lifestyle after a new rugby league clubhouse and netball courts opened in October.
The facilities expand the Flagstone Sporting Precinct in Flagstonian Drive, opposite the popular adventure playground.
The clubhouse serves the Flagstone Tigers rugby league club, which held its first home games in May and is an affiliate of the Brisbane Tigers (formerly Eastern Suburbs), a feeder club for the National Rugby League.
Flagstone Tigers has teams in the under 6, 7, 8 and 9 competitions and will expand into older age groups for the 2022 season.

“The Flagstone community is growing quickly as new families move to the area,” Cr Willcocks says.
“As a mum of two active girls,I know how important facilities like this are.
“Council encourages everyone in our city to be as active as possible – and it’s great to have these fields and courts close by.”
The new $350,000 clubhouse is a collaboration between the Queensland Government, Brisbane Tigers and developer Peet Limited.
Additional funding was also provided by Cr Willcocks ($2,500) and Mayor Darren Power ($1,000), via council’s Community Benefit Fund.
