The temporary indoor playground at Orange Indoor Tennis Centre will be open until at least the end of winter.



The indoor playground debuted at the tennis centre last year.


Orange City Council recently sought expressions of interest to establish and operate a permanent indoor playground in Orange.

There has been reticence in the past from the business community, as turning a profit while keeping entry prices attractive enough to encourage repeated return visits is no small feat.


Orange City Council Sport and Recreation Policy Committee chair, councillor Tammy Greenhalgh, said it was "beneficial for parents and caregivers to have a warm place for children to play during the coldest months of the year".



During school holidays the indoor playground will be open seven days from 10am to 3pm. After school holidays it will be open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9am to 1pm, and on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm.

Play equipment includes jumping castles, a ball pit and inflatable obstacle course.


The playground is suitable for children aged from preschool to primary school.

Entry $10 per child for a two-hour session. Bookings not required.


"There will be a café providing coffee, tea and cold drinks, hot chips, toasted sandwiches, fish

and chips, cakes, lollies and popcorn," council stated. "Please do not bring your own food and drinks."


Orange Indoor Tennis Centre is at 9 Palmer Street, behind the Orange Function Centre.
