Representatives of Dunedin gymnastics clubs have requested the creation of fit-for-purpose facilities for their sport.
Dunedin Trampoline Sports secretary Camilla Cox said gymnastics clubs had been talking to the council for over two decades about the shortage of gymnastics facilities.
“We have a profound shortage of indoor facilities generally, I think confirmed by the fact that the Edgar Centre is always booked,” she said.
Facilities had issues with leaking and flooding, and equipment was being damaged by the need to set it up and store it again for each training session.
In their submission, the gymnastics clubs asked for $2million for upgrades to the Caledonian and $3million to $13million to refurbish or build a new facility.
They also asked for $50,000 to $100,000 for a council liaison position to be created.
