Eastern Canopy

Building a new future for sport delivery in New Brighton

136 Shaw Avenue| from $10 per hour 8am - 9pm daily

State of the art 

The facility is designed as a Sprung Structure. Over 12,500 structures erected in 100 countries from the world's leading tensioned membrane structure manufacturer for sports and recreation applications. Structures can be relocated, expanded, attached to buildings and given the post-earthquake environment this is critical.

The new facility provides an indoor sports hall designed for flexible multi-purpose use, fitted out for indoor sport leagues, indoor winter training, fitness training, with the capability for recreational indoor sports such as basketball, bowls, netball, indoor touch, volleyball, tennis, futsal, korfball, handball, pickleball,  with lanes suitable for bowling and pitching machines for either cricket or softball.
