Arean Joondalup experiences significant increase in partrons

ARENA Joondalup has experienced a 50 per cent increase in patrons in the last quarter.

‘From July to September, more than 281,000 patrons visited the venue, which is 50 per cent above the same time last year,’ VenuesWest chairman Graham Partridge said.

Latest figures released by VenuesWest show 91 per cent of patrons attended Arena Joondalup for community use such as sporting functions, childcare and recreational programs, 8 per cent for elite sport use and 1 per cent for commercial use.

‘The results clearly indicate a combination of factors including record levels of population growth migrating to the northern suburbs over the last few years,’ Mr Partridge said.

‘It is also a result of us having a broad range of activities available to all age groups, such as Swim School, Splash and Bounce, child care, kids’ gym, Fit Club, junior triathlon training and many more.’

He said Arena Joondalup was also the home of many community sporting competitions including rugby, netball and hockey.
