New Sports Facility Opens Its Doors

From Flaxmere youth to Finnish athletes, the new EIT Institute of Sport and Health is a world-class facility ready for the Hawke’s Bay community to use.

The facility at the Hawke’s Bay Regional Sports Park, which is projected to cost $28 million once Stage 1 is complete, held an open day on Sunday, to invite the public into the space to see everything from pole vault, to pickle ball.

Sport and Health development manager Marcus Agnew said it was great to see people using the space.

“It’s been a long road and today is a pretty special day.
