    This is one heck of a stadium!! It's new and is in Taradale, it holds many functions such as Music Concerts, Conference & Meetings, Sports Events and Trade Shows & Expos. It has wonderful facilites with plently of parking and is really nice and tidy. Wonderful place and also supports alot of local things, such as our Science Fair etc. =)

    Equipment: It's a gym so whatever you feel comfterable in. If you are going to watch a sports event, a good standard of wear is required but there isn't anything too strict.
