The Mackay Indoor Sports Arena is set to launch into new seasons and they are calling locals to get in and give indoor sport a go.

The Mackay facility hosts social competitions in cricket, netball, soccer and volleyball with the new summer season providing a fun way to stay fit across the warmer months.

Manager Kushla Ireland urged people to check out the Indoor Sports Arena to find a sport and then come down to get involved.

She said the arena offers mixed, women's and men's competitions in each sport.

"We have just started a new season and you can join any time,” Ireland said.

"Bring a team or just bring yourself and we will find you a team.”

Ireland said the competitions run on weeknights with the opportunity for players to step into Premier Leagues if the want to test themselves in a more serious standard of contest.

The arena also hosts a number of junior sports with a sign on day held yesterday for soccer and netball competitions while extra numbers are being sought for a junior cricket bash which started this week.

Ireland said further information for all competitions is available on the arena's website.
