New $21.5m sports centre to open Rolleston with interactive, digital wall

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

A $21.5 million sports centre with a New Zealand-first interactive digital wall is preparing to open in Rolleston next month.

The centre, on Broadlands Drive, has areas for fitness classes, an upstairs indoor walking track, and eight sports courts that can be used for basketball, netball, futsal, volleyball, and tennis.

The Selwyn District Council said Selwyn Netball, Selwyn United Football and the Selwyn Sports Trust would host competitions at the new centre.

The design of a hard floor also meant it could host events such as a market or car show in the future too.
