Lauren Jackson Sports Centre

The former Albury Sports Stadium was renamed the Lauren Jackson Sports Centre on Saturday 22 October 2011, in honour of home grown women's basketball superstar Lauren Jackson.

Lauren unveiled new signage and officially opened the newly named sports centre.

At the time Lauren said, "I'm very excited but humbled to have the sports centre named in my honour. I'm grateful to the Albury City Council and people of Albury for this recognition. Wherever I go in the world I always consider myself a country girl from Albury and it will indeed always be my home. I'm very proud to have this connection to a city I love and can represent".
