Hawke’s Bay has the potential to supersede the likes of Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington and Christchurch as the premier sport facility region of New Zealand.
In fact Hawke’s Bay can probably already lay claim to the title, but with over $60 million of new sport facilities at the Regional Sports Park (Mitre10 Park), Pettigrew.Green Arena (PGH) and a high performance training facility for Hawke’s Bay Rugby, the region is punching well above its weight.
At Mitre10 Park, sports already present include athletics, hockey, rugby, football, league, canoe polo, fitness centre, Crossfit, basketball and netball and they will be joined by swimming, water polo, cricket and boxing as well as a 40 room hostel.
Just several kilometres down the road at Taradale’s Pettigrew.Green Arena (PGA), indoor sport codes such as basketball, netball, badminton, volleyball and futsal will enjoy the increase in court space to 11 courts.
