LISA (aka Launceston Indoor Sports Arena) has been the focus of our attention recently. We’ve been spending a lot of time with LISA, so we thought we’d best introduce her to you! And I thought you might like a quick tour of the big stadium shed in the northern Tasmanian city of Launceston.
Introducing LISA: Launceston Indoor Sports Arena
The land adjacent to the Launceston Indoor Sports Arena is currently undergoing a huge extension that will result in a dozen or so extra tennis courts. LISA will then be able to host more players during the regular tournament schedule for Tennis Tasmania.
LISA Soccer Competition
Already sporting five synthetic grass courts and one hard court indoors, LISA has a great viewing mezzanine for spectators. Besides tennis, the indoor surface is suitable for soccer and hockey, providing for all-weather competition.
With a lovely cafe that serves good coffee and light meals, the downstairs area includes comfortable seating and big screen televisions to pass the time between matches. The staff are friendly, always ready to help with a smile and a chat.
If you travel to Launceston and you’re looking for a little light sporting entertainment, the Launceston Indoor Sports Arena is also the place to head for mini golf. Golfers of any standard can hire a club and a ball and make their way around the course.
So that’s our take on LISA : already a good facility, but still improving.
