IPSWICH councillor David Morrison was a key player in helping the State Government and Ipswich City Council secure a three-year plan for the Ipswich Sports House.

After its first year of operation, Cr Morrison is encouraged by the results.

"I have heard positive feedback from various codes regarding ways in which they have been helped by the Ipswich Sports House," said Council's Chairman Parks, Sport and Recreation.

"Much of the first year is establishing relationships and trust with Ipswich sport and recreation clubs and executive."

Cr Morrison praised the Sports House team for their efforts working with Council to sell out the recent QT-City of Ipswich Sports Awards (see page 39).

He said other Sports House successes included:

  • Managing the Brisbane Roar v Ipswich Invitational football match on behalf of Football Ipswich;
  • Running a sports conference in November;
  • Attracting QAFL administration to Ipswich;
  • Playing an important role in Football Ipswich's successful bid to be accepted into the Australian Premier League and the formation of Western Pride.

In 2013, Cr Morrison would like to see the Sports House team run more events.

"Any sporting code that is not utilising the services of Ipswich Sports House is missing out on a very unique opportunity," he said.

Ipswich Sports House is located on level 3 of the Hayden Centre in South St. Phone 3810 7545.
