Free family fun at MARC Stadium's open day

Published on 22 January 2024


Community members are invited to take part in an open day celebration at the $17 million Moorabool Aquatic and Recreation Centre (MARC) indoor stadium in Maddingley, the biggest facility of its kind in the shire.

Community can expect an array of free activities including adult and child-friendly Strength and Stretch classes, children's disco and various ball sport demonstrations. A sausage sizzle will be provided with a gold coin donation to the Belgravia Foundation, which aims to reduce participation barriers in sport and recreation.

"We are thrilled to open the doors of the MARC Stadium to the community and showcase the state-of-the-art facilities; it's not just a stadium, but a hub for fitness, fun and community engagement," Moorabool Shire Mayor, Cr Ally Munari said.

Council has a three-year partnership with stadium operators, Belgravia Leisure, which will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the centre's four indoor highball courts, two multi-program spaces and function room with kitchenette.

The community open day will be held on Saturday 20 January from 10am-1pm at the stadium, located in Taverner Street, Maddingley.
