HUBCAP - a sports, recreation and community facility for Carterton
The Carterton Sports and Recreation Trust has developed a proposal for a sports and community hub to be developed at Howard Booth Park.
This facility will provide a single location for a number of sports and meeting and recreation rooms for club activities, meetings and social functions.
Sports and community hubs have been developed in many locations in New Zealand and are a proven way of lowering costs and maximising use of common facilities.
What's in a name? Why HUBCAP?
The name expresses two core ideas: what the facility is and what it brings.
It will be a sports "hub" where a number of sports will be located together.
CAP is an acronym for Connected Active People.
- Connected - this is about bringing clubs and people together and benefiting from those connections
- Active - let's promote activity for all of our people of all ages to promote health and happiness
- People - the focus is on our whole community and to be to the benefit of everyone, not just sportspeople
