Waterloo community receives state-of-the-art sports facility
​Mayor Zandile Gumede offi cially opened the Waterloo sports
facility (insert) where members of the community were urged
to utilise and protect it from vandalism.
THE community of Waterloo received an early Christmas gift when Mayor Zandile Gumede officially opened a state-of-the-art sports centre in the area valued at R11.2 million on 16 November.

Addressing Waterloo residents that came out in numbers, Mayor Gumede said the sports facility was built in an effort to promote fitness and healthy living among members of the community, be it young or old. “You must take full advantage of this facility and ensure that it is always kept busy so that it doesn’t become a ‘white elephant’.”

Mayor Gumede also urged the community to take ownership of the centre and not damage it. “We can bring security personnel to guard the sport facility, but it is up to you to ensure that it is protected against vandalism and theft.” Head of Parks, Recreation and Culture Unit Thembinkosi Ngcobo said the Unit will design different sporting programmes to be played at the facility.

He urged members of the community to keep fi t by partaking in these programmes. “Every year the
Municipality loses about R80 million due to vandalism. We hope that you will work with us to ensure that the facility is protected. We will also ensure that it is well maintained.” The sports facility consists of a multi-purpose court, a pavilion, changing rooms, ablution facilities, a covered platform for cultural activities and an outdoor gym.
