Slacks Creek Rugby League Club has officially opened its new clubhouse.

The $1.4 million clubhouse is a welcome addition for a club that has been a fixture on the Logan sporting landscape for more than 40 years.

The new facility was opened in September in front of club members. 

Slacks Creek Rugby League Club Secretary Timothy Burke said the club hasn’t had a fully functioning clubhouse for a number of years.

“So the new facility will make a huge difference to our rugby league community,” Mr Burke said.

“Slacks Creek Rugby League Club enjoys incredible community support with kids growing up to be involved at committee level and then their children playing in teams.”

The club has more than 187 registered players ranging from under 6 to under 17, including a number of girls’ teams.

Minister for Sport Mick de Brenni said the new clubhouse will make a massive difference to the club in recovering from the global pandemic.

“COVID-19 threw a spanner in the works for sporting clubs across Queensland but, just like their players do out on the field, the Slacks Creek Lions haven’t stopped giving it their all,” he said.

City of Logan Mayor Darren Power said it was fantastic to see the club rewarded for all its hard work and commitment in recent years.

“I am pleased that the committee will now see the rewards of its hard work by having a new clubhouse. I know how much this means to the club,” he said.
