THE school holidays came and went as quick as a pickleball forehand, but there was still plenty of fun to fit in at the Sports Dome over the last two weeks.
There will be one more chance for the kids to run around at the dome and on the city's newest sporting grounds.
Tamworth Regional Council will officially open stage one of the Northern Inland Centre of Sporting Excellence on Saturday.
Stage one includes the new athletics track, velodrome and arena at AELEC.
There will be events and food stalls at the facilities from 10am on Saturday.
Schools return for term four from Monday.
