Sports Club House Opens

Bond University has another first class addition to its sporting facilities with the opening of a Sports Clubhouse.

Federal Member for McPherson the Hon. Margaret May MP officially opened the clubhouse on Thursday November 15, providing both players and spectators with new, professional-level facilities and amenities.

Funded and supported by the Bond University Sports Association (BUSA), the Bond University Sports Centre and the University, the Sports Clubhouse will become the home of sport for Bond students and community sports partners, including Rugby Gold Coast, the Northern Eagles Soccer Club, Hockey Burleigh, Gold Coast Cricket and the Robina Roo’s Australian Rules Football Club.

BUSA President Tom Clarke said the opening of the facility marked an exciting new era in the sporting culture of Bond.

“It is the vision of the Sports Centre, BUSA and the University that the sporting facilities here at Bond are developed and used to the highest level,” he said.

“We (BUSA) will certainly make the most of the new clubhouse and ensure that the quality of sporting events at Bond is better than ever,” Tom said.

The clubhouse, boasting a prime position on the wing of the rugby field, is the perfect social setting for sporting events with its large undercover deck and kitchen facilities.

Fitted with toilet and changing facilities, offices and a storage area, it is an exciting inclusion to the Bond campus. An inclusion BUSA says is “not only necessary for the development of the University’s sporting program, but for maximising the educational and life experience Bond offers all its students”.

In opening the facility, Margaret May MP said the addition of the clubhouse spoke to Bond’s commitment to a holistic approach to education that wasn’t just about educating the mind.

“Bond has an impressive record in the sporting arena and I hope this clubhouse produces some great champions for the future - for Bond University and for the community as a whole,” she said.

BUSA was quick to put the clubhouse to use, hosting a Business vs Law rugby game on opening afternoon.

A huge crowd gathered to watch what turned out to be a thrilling game, with the Law School narrowly defeating Business 26 – 24.
