Fall plans for the PotashCorp Sportsplex
2016/17 season was a wonderful year to kick start the Sportsplex. That said we have big plans in place for this winter as well. Ladies, Men’s and Friday Night Corporate Night were all huge hits and will all be back in 2017. We do however want to add a Yatch Club on weekends along with a few more tournaments.
In addition we are looking to take out the Driving Range rooms and add a couple Kids XBOX chambers—super cool rooms that are more moderately priced and perfect for kids’ parties!
On the bowling alley side we are looking at a couples league. We are thinking a corporate league and a men’s and ladies league. We will announce as we go but expect a fantastic array of programming once we open for our second season at the PotashCorp Sportsplex!

This is a great and inexpensive way to promote your business, have a little fun and make a few new friends and customers.

• Plan the Friday night golf game (we can help)
• Provide some prizes for the evening
• Provide a $50 to $75 prize for our year end windup
In exchange we set you up at the all new sponsor booth and you can do as little or as much promoting as you like!

Wedding Reception Options
If you are looking at options to host a future Wedding Reception we encourage you to consider the Sportsplex /Outdoor Eventplex. This option gives you all the indoor space of the Sportsplex including Bowling Alley side and Leisure Centre Side. It gives you 2,500 square feet of outdoor deck space (half covered and half not covered). It also gives you the large ground level rubber decking and stage at the outdoor EventPlex. Becomes an all in one centre as it allows you to hold the reception, supper and dance all at one location.
In addition we will curtain off any area you prefer hidden and we are fully licenced and have caterer services if preferred or allow you to look at other options around the community. Finally the price can not be beat as it is priced for mid size weddings.
If you would like give us a call and we will show you all we have to offer—flower displays, patio furniture, chairs tables, curtain dividers and on and on! You can reach us at 435-3622!

In addition we are working on an action pop up video of all our facilities. This is an extensive video which we hope to have on line sometime. Aided by the use of a drone and some fantastic High School kids this should be a fabulous “fly-by” and inside peek at the multitude of facilities our community possesses.
