21st June 2018You may have seen media coverage recently about the Edgar Centre being an “earthquake prone” building.
This description has understandably caused some public concern about the Centre and whether it is safe to use in its current state. In short, yes it is safe. Under normal, day to day conditions the Edgar Centre is as safe now as it has always been.
15th June 2018Skills and Drills are a great opportunity for our students to apply some practical coaching knowledge.
There are approx. 300 children (athletes) from a variety of primary schools who each engage with five different fundamental sports.
We utilise ten courts and the indoor venue guarantees we can run these sessions. It is fantastic for our students and the primary schools and it is one of the ways in which Otago Polytechnic students engage with the community.
We believe this has a real benefit to our students, as well as the primary school pupils. They plan, deliver, evaluate each day and refine their coaching over a number of days.
15th June 2018Come on down this week to Wiggly Wednesday for a fun hour or two with the kids. There will be a bouncy castle, bike course and more fun activities on the courts.
Make sure the kids bring their bikes and scooters, bring a friend along or even a whole group with their winter woollies on.
Its on every Wednesday between 10am - 2pm, only $3 per child.
Look out on our Facebook page for Wiggly themed dress up's and updates. Also don't forget to ask at reception for a concession card and receive the 10th entry free.

Our new furniture was purchased through a local manufacturer and Brand Partner supporter Metalon.
The Cafe will now be open all day on Saturday and after 3pm every Tuesday and Thursday.

22nd May 2018Now that the winter months are rolling in, we have added a few extra activities for kids to do indoors. Come in and hire a court for only $2.50 per child and choose any sport to play, or book a Bike Course for only $30 extra and get a group together to ride their bikes and scooters. There is also junior Zorbs for 12 years and under, and we are excited to announce a new activity concept called Hungerball, for all ages including adults.
