Winter chills and rainy weekends are the major deterrents for most people to exercise. However, there is always a way out – taking up indoor sports are great active alternatives to get you the right level of fitness. Here are some great indoor sports for exploration and fun, which are suitable for both children and adults.
Northern Suburbs Basketball Association Inc. (NSBA) leases North Sydney Indoor Sports Centre. You can play basketball on casual basis (per person) or rent the half court or full court together with your friends or your team mates. If basketball is not your favourite sport, you can consider playing volleyball, indoor soccer, badminton and netball in the centre. There is no shortage of choices to exercise your body.
Saturday and Sunday 9am – 5.30pm* (*availability dependent upon Miniball and NSBA Representative Competitive Schedule)
