Axworthy Health and Recplex

350 Spence Street
Winnipeg, MB R3B 2S4

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.
