South Australia’s First Giant Inflatable Football (Soccer) Pitch – Public Launch 26th August 2006
Football Focus launches its giant inflatable football (soccer) pitch, aptly named “The Pitch” to the public on 26th August 2006 at Cumberland United Football Club.
The first inflatable football pitch in South Australia has multiple uses for children and adults, boys and girls. It’s perfect for beach football and small-sided games, the instant barrier minimizes wandering balls plus the pitch reinforces the pleasure and fun that should be part of any active lifestyle. Unique to Adelaide the pitch will also be available for hire.
Arguably the fastest growing sport in Australia, Football (still known as soccer) is becoming increasingly popular in Adelaide, riding high on the tidal wave of the World Cup and success of the Socceroos. Over recent years, sport and recreation has become increasingly recognized by Government as a conduit to enhance quality of life outcomes for all people in the community. The health and community benefits of participation in sport and recreation are well documented. By encouraging children to be active and engaging them in fun physical activities is not only important for healthy growth and development but establishes routines that could stay with them for life.
Following similar successes on the East Coast, Jason Hayhurst, Football Focus Director, brings to Adelaide, South Australia’s first giant inflatable football (soccer) pitch, appropriately called “The Pitch” – sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike. 35m long by 25m wide, The Pitch has inflatable perimeters and “traditional style” netted goals at each end. It is made from PVC coated vinyl, more often associated with “bouncy castles”.
