Event Centre Features

This Gymnasium was a focal point to the Athletic Centre expansion completed in 2017. The space includes a 3-court FIVB volleyball or FIBA basketball set up perfect for hosting large tournaments, and each individual court has a score clock/shot clock. Extendable bleachers are available to seat up to 2200 fans for an intimate single court experience. The large area makes for a great space for any large sporting or social event. The 4-screen scoreboard is a perfect addition to any sporting or social event, the screen can be lowered to any desired height, and has the ability to display live crowd reactions, video, instant replays and much more.  

The Venue provides 4 visiting team change rooms directly outside the gymnasium, as well as 2 ref rooms. Ask about booking our VIP lounge for games or events, this space overlooks the Event Centre and is the best view in the building. There are also accessible routes for all viewers, with elevators to both the spectator viewing area and main court.
