The Dimboola Health and Fitness Centre is a modern multi-purpose complex opened in 2012 and is located in Dimboola, halfway between Melbourne and Adelaide in the heart of the Wimmera district in western Victoria. It is adjacent to the Dimboola Memorial Secondary College in School Street and is easily accessed from the Western and Borung highways.
The complex includes a fully equipped gym, a synthetic sports field with competition standard lighting for night play, a versatile function room along with two change rooms, separate umpires’ room and well equipped kitchen.
These facilities are well utilized by the three schools in the town during school hours but with prior arrangement during these times and outside school hours, all of these facilities are available to other groups and organisations for sporting events and functions.
Whilst the playing surface is lined for both hockey and tennis, it has also been used for other sports such as lacrosse and soccer and by the local football and netball clubs for training. The field lighting has allowed many local sports to expand their seasons to include evening games or trainings sessions to increase participation and to avoid the heat of the day during summer.
The function room has dividing doors so it can be used as two separate rooms or opened into one large function space with access to the adjacent kitchen via a servery. The room also looks out over the spectator terraces to the sporting field through large glass windows and doors.
The gymnasium is open daily to members and has access to a personal trainer. Details on how to purchase annual memberships are available from either the gym staff or the main office of the Secondary College.
The Centre is managed by an executive committee which is made up of a representative of each of the member user groups, and is maintained by the members of these organisations.
Although you do not need to be a user group to utilize any of the complex’s facilities, the opportunity exists for groups to become a user group. If you are interested in this, contact the Dimboola Health and Fitness Centre’s CEO via the contact page.
