Wicks visits oval amenities project

Construction on McEvoy Oval's new amenities building is well underway and on schedule to be completed in July 2017, with the Umina upgrade set to support grassroots sport on the Peninsula.

Federal Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks visited McEvoy Oval on Monday, June 5, to view the progress of the upgrade said she was impressed.

"This upgrade means that local sporting groups, schools and families on the Peninsula will have access to better facilities and our local sporting clubs can attract state-wide competitions," Mrs Wicks said.

"It means more opportunities and more events for our local area.

"The previous amenities building was dilapidated and unsafe, and did not adequately accommodate the current usage."

The project was jointly funded by the Federal Government ($304,000), NSW Government ($225,000), Central Coast Council ($220,000), Woy Woy Peninsula Little Athletics ($3000), Peninsula Touch Football Association ($5000) and Southern Spirit Cricket Club ($3000).

Central Coast Council administrator Mr Ian Reynolds said the amenities upgrade would benefit a range of local sporting associations.

"A number of local codes call McEvoy Oval home including Woy Woy Peninsula Little Athletics, Southern Spirit Cricket Club and the Peninsula Touch Football Association.

"It's an invaluable community asset," said Mr Reynolds.

"This upgrade will improve the scale of events that can be held at McEvoy Oval and further promote participation in sport across the Peninsula and the wider Central Coast.

"We're home to a strong sporting culture on the Central Coast and investments in infrastructure projects like this from all levels of government can only help in developing our local sporting champions of tomorrow," he said.
