The Newcastle Knights took Thursday's training session to Myuna Bay, as part of the Myuna Bay's Sport and Recreation Centre's launch event.

The Wally Miles sports field and amenities block was officially opened by Member for Lake Macquarie, Greg Piper MP, Federal Member for Charlton, Pat Conroy MP and Chief Executive for the Office of Sport, Matt Miller.

As part of the celebrations, the Knights also held a kids training session after the ribbon was cut at the Wally Miles sports field. 

Nick Rendell, Centre Manager at Myuna Bay Sport and Recreation Camp, was thrilled to have the Knights involved in the official opening of the refurbished field.

"The Knights themselves have had a long history with Myuna Bay...and it's good to have them back," Rendell said.

"It's a bit of an opprotunity for kids in the local area to get out and meet the players, get some autographs and run around and be kids.

"It's great to see the players out here and the kids having fun."

Knights coach Rick Stone reflected on the Knights' long association with the Myuna Bay Sport and Rec Camp which spans as far as the Club's inception.  

"It's been pretty important in the history of the Knights...we've had camps here for more than 20 years," Stone said.

"Obviously the facility has improved over time with the new amenities.

"It's great to come back out here and connect with the people. The boys really enjoyed it and I'm sure the kids enjoyed it as well."
