Family fun day at Mercury Bay Multi-Sport Park a great success

The opening of and the family fun day held at the new Mercury Bay Multi-Sport Park was a great success.

"We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who came along, as a player, a coach, a volunteer or just as a member of the public," said Mercury Bay Community Board chairman Paul Kelly. "It was fantastic to see so many of our community enjoying the facility on the day and it is a hugely positive milestone in the history of the Sport Park. We are looking forward to many more."

Several hundred people turned up on the day to see Mercury Bay sports teams playing netball, rugby, rugby league and football.

"This was a real family and community focused event and an opportunity for everyone to come and learn about the sports they could get involved with at the park and to see what our facility has to offer," said Thames Coromandel District Council Sport Park co-ordinator Sue Costello.

The Sport Park will also be the base for the Goldrush Rally of New Zealand in August.
