The holiday season is upon us – yay! Let’s soak up the warmer weather and get MOVEing to stay happy and healthy for the summer months ahead.

Free play Fridays @ Burwood & Waurn Ponds

If you’re based at the Burwood Campus, you’re welcome to come down and use the Multi-purpose court for free, or if you’re at Waurn Ponds then the stadium is also open for Free Play Fridays as well!

Did you know you can also hire out equipment? Grab a soccer ball or some racquets and head to Burwood’s outdoor MPC or Waurn Pond’s indoor stadium to practice some shots with a friend, try the squash court (Waurn Ponds only), or try your hand at pickleball! Just come see us at reception to enquire.
