Slam dunk for sports centre upgrade
One of the City of Logan’s most popular indoor recreation facilities has been given a new lease on life.
The multi-purpose courts used for basketball, futsal, netball, volleyball and badminton at Cornubia Park Sports Centre have been refurbished and the line-marking updated through Council-approved funding from the Local Infrastructure Program for Division 10.
Councillor Miriam Stemp says Logan Basketball lease and operate the courts as part of a 10-year arrangement to manage the facility for the benefit of the local community.
‘It has helped create a facility to grow basketball and other indoor sports and attract clubs and players from across the city,’ Cr Stemp says.
Logan Basketball General Manager Mitch Young says the community and venue users have embraced the upgrades.
‘Regular week-to-week usage of the courts is at an all-time high in the centre’s 25-year history,’ Mitch says.
‘The floor re-surfacing has been pivotal in returning the playing courts to a state-of-the-art performance sports floor that members of the local community can regularly access right here in Logan.’
Mitch says the centre also hosts other major events, state sporting championships and school holiday programs.
This year, the centre will host the Logan Thunder NBL1 North season, Australian Futsal Easter Tournament, GKR Karate Tournament, the Queensland interschool volleyball tournament and the Queensland Youth State Lead Titles sport climbing event, followed by the Queensland U16 Boys Basketball Championship in early 2024.
