The wait is almost over for eager hockey fans as completion of the new Waimakariri Hockey Turf draws closer.

Water based artificial hockey turf in Coldstream Road in RangioraWaimakariri District Council’s Community and Recreation Committee approved a new competition level, full size artificial hockey turf in Rangiora in August 2015. The facility, located in Coldstream Road adjacent to Mainpower Oval, is set to impress and the grand opening event will be held on Sunday 19 February 2017.

Council’s Community and Recreation Committee Portfolio Holder Robbie Brine says “The facility will attract major tournaments to our region, and will cater for the growing number of players in our district”.

“The location is within a sports ‘hub’ which is well supported by other sports facilities and Rangiora High School.  We’re really excited to hear what people think about it when they come along to the open day” he says.

Sunday’s event will provide an opportunity for kids to have a go on the new turf and Rangiora will take on Hinemoa/Kaiapoi in an opening match. The event runs from 11am until 2.30 pm, where it will finish with an exhibition match.
