Indoor Court Facility Plan

This plan represents 6 codes – Badminton, Basketball, Futsal, Netball, Table Tennis and Volleyball. 

There is an under supply of indoor courts across Auckland which is constraining growth of indoor sport codes.  Strong population growth and demographic shifts will continue to put pressure on indoor court facilities and the shortage of courts is only expected to increase.

The purpose of this plan is to provide an evidenced based approach to inform the development of a network of fit for purpose indoor court facilities across Auckland.
