Waraba takes shape with new sports club

The new city of Waraba already has its first sports club and with an expected future population of around 70,000 people, there will be no shortage of players to sign up.

Waraba Sports Club is a multi-sport organisation which has an established cricket club and a specialised baseball coaching arm, and plans to add baseball and AFL over the next 12 months.

A launch celebration event is planned for Sunday April 20 to introduce the new club and mark the start of the local 2024 cricket season.

Lilywood Landings, the first residential community to get under way in Waraba, has announced a sponsorship of Waraba Sports Club to help the club grow and make sport accessible for everyone in the region who wants to play.

Waraba Sports Club Director Jeremy Donahoo said the club had been formed by a group of keen sportspeople and already had around 38 members of its cricket club, including some father and teenage son duos.

“We are determined to ensure there is vital community support for a huge range of sports to be held in this new satellite city to complement and add to the local parks, gardens and recreation areas planned,” he said.

“The Waraba Sports Club open day and season launch will have a host of family friendly activities including displays, food, drinks and activities for the kids.”

The launch event will be held from 12pm to 5pm at the Lindsay Road Sports Complex in Morayfield, with everyone welcome.

Lilywood Landings sits at the gateway to Waraba, formerly Caboolture West, and will provide more than 700 new homes on completion.

Lennium Group Development Manager Ian Worthington said Waraba Sports Club had wasted no time adopting the new city name as its own and putting in place an ambitious plan to foster regional participation in sport.

“We are very pleased to have entered into a community partnership with Waraba Sports Club and look forward to watching their growth over the coming years,” he said.
