“The WPCA recognises its social responsibility to uplift communities by promoting positive activities, which is part of the ethos that Central Athletics stands for.

“The emphasis has always been on the enjoyment of the sport by building lasting friendships through the social interaction of individuals and families alike. It is for this reason that we as the WPCA decided to strengthen our partnership with Central Athletics by providing a facility and a home for all those in the community who strive to improve their quality of life,” explains Williams.
