Sport is a huge part of our culture here on the MidCoast, from the traditional team sports to aquatic pursuits and a range of things in between.

To cater for this, we operate a large number of sporting facilities, and work with community sporting groups to deliver great places for people of all ages to participate in sport.

Across the MidCoast we have 58 full size playing fields, 26 sporting complexes, 10 chlorinated pools and two ocean pools.

We work with community groups and the State and Federal Government to invest in improving our sporting facilities.
