KINGSWAY LAC ARENA
Kingsway LAC covers a large area with the majority of our Field sites located around the outer area of the main oval.
Our six jump pits are located in the North Eastern corner of the arena, while our four Shot Put and three main Discus sites are found in the South Western corner of the arena.
The main oval is home to our two tracks - a ten lane short track and separate ten lane long track as well as our Javelin and High Jump sites.
Kingsway LAC's main oval is surrounded by sloping hills covered with grass providing ample room for spectators with great vantage points and many trees providing shade on those warm Summer competitions.
Kingsway LAC will have the canteen open all day Saturday and Sunday. Accepting both cash and EFTPOS, the canteen is located within the Football clubrooms. If you are looking for a quick bite then you can access the canteen on the outside of the building at the top of the stairs. Alternatively, if you are looking for an escape from the warmer weather, you can also access the canteen from the inside before sitting at the tables and chairs to eat.
