A collection of magnificent trophies won over the years for a variety of sports, housed in the Warialda Visitor Information Centre, attests to the rich sporting background of Warialda.
The town is the birthplace or schooling centre of several sporting identities who have gone on to represent Australia at an international level including Troy Bayliss (Motor Cross, Super Bikes, Motor GP and V8 car racing), Ray Stehr, Noel and Les Cleal and Stan Jurd (Rugby League) and Col Cleal (Rough riding) to name a few.
Among the variety of sports available are golf, bowls, tennis, horseback riding, polocrosse, basketball, football, touch football, netball, swimming, martial arts, squash, and exercise classes.
A sample of the sporting facilities in Warialda include: a well equipped gym with 24 hour access, an Olympic size swimming pool, an excellent and challenging 9 hole grass golf course with couch grass greens and two very well maintained grass bowling greens. Set amongst beautiful bushland surrounds, the golf course is often enjoyed by the local wildlife, adding that unique charm found only on country courses. In addition, Warialda has four tennis courts, an indoor sporting arena and minor and senior rugby league football ovals.
Warialda skate park has been professionally constructed with the individual modules able to be moved around to provide different layouts when needed.
Warialda Clubs include:
Basketball Club, Bowls, Carriage Driving, Cricket, Darts, Dog Trials, Fishing, Golf, Jockey Club, Little Athletics, Netball, Off Road Association, Physical Culture, Polo Club, Polocrosse Club, Pony Club, Rifle Club, Rodeo/Campdraft, Rugby League Club, Squash, Swimming Club and Tennis Club.
