Copper Coast Sport & Leisure Centre Redevelopment
Th e Copper Coast Sports and Leisure Centre located on Doswell Terrace, Kadina is owned by the District Council of the Copper Coast and managed by Belgravia Leisure.
The Centres main users are cardio & gym (670+ members), basketball (700+ members), netball, tennis and the Kadina Memorial School. Other activities include; futsal, sport aerobics, children's activities and vacation care.
Sport in the Yorke Peninsula is of high importance, many local residents play multiple sports over the summer and winter seasons. Basketball is one of the most popular sports on Yorke Peninsula with a 700 strong membership in the roster played from the CCSLC.
Funds raised will contribute to a $10,000,000 upgrade of the existing Sport Centre which which includes three new multipurpose undercover courts, relocation of the gym and a redevelopment of the reception area that will include seating and a cafe.
To complete the project the existing court will be renovated into a show court with permanent seating installed.
The vision is for the venue to become a modern recreational indoor centre for the region and adjoining education precinct.
The Yorke Peninsula is a growing area, but young families are hesitant to relocate to a region if they families do not have access to the same level of opportunities as those in the Adelaide area.
This redevelopment will bring expertise (State teams and coaches training and running clinics) to our region and give families an opportunity to compete in a facility equal to any that Adelaide has to offer.

Copper Coast Sport & Leisure Centre Funding Update
Last year we announced that we received Federal funding to increase the overall project and the budget to over ten million dollars. The good news since that time is that we have been able to sign the funding agreements and the project is now secure.
So what does this mean for the project? Well it’s great news.
We will be able to reseal the car park, resurface the Tennis and Netball courts, replace the fencing and install light towers. This should all be accomplished with the Tennis and Netball Clubs contributing equivalent fees to what they have previously paid to maintain the courts, but having the advantages of a much improved environment.
The final plans will now be confirmed and building works will commence within a few months.
Also a brief update on a potential synthetic turf for hockey in the Copper Coast, this hasn’t worked out for incorporation with the sports centre redevelopment (it would not physically fit), but we will continue to work with the Association on other options.
