The Axworthy Health and Recplex will host basketball and wrestling events during the 2017 Canada Summer Games. This new, multi-use, artificial turf facility will be converted from basketball competition in week one to wrestling in week two of the Games.
The 50.5 x 90 metre soccer field will accommodate a temporary hardwood floor for basketball and then six competition and two warm-up mats for the wrestling competition. The Axworthy Health and Recplex features a climate-controlled environment and an adjacent community gym.
Temporary bleachers will be installed for spectators and the sky bridge connection to the University of Winnipeg’s Duckworth Centre provides a convenient and comfortable space to accommodate both sports.
