Community building through sport

Organized sport, whether for adults, our children or as spectators, is a great way to get to know other local families and build community. At Pennant Hills we have such amazing facilities thanks to years of investment and reinvestment by Hornsby Council and good governanced not-for-profit sporting clubs run by volunteers.  

I took a wander through Pennant Hills Park recently and from top to bottom, here’s a smorgasbord of the wide range sports in our backyard, and details of how you can contact them.
