The City of Marion Council has provided an update on the ongoing project works at the Cove Sports and Community Club, announcing that significant progress has been made.

The latest project update revealed the new netball courts have been completed, which will feature synthetic sports surfaces and shelters to accommodate both players and spectators.

Progress on the clubroom construction has been made as well, with important construction elements such as structural steel, roofing, wall framing, glazing, and service installations now complete, among other improvements that are aimed at providing the best sporting experience for the community.

Sports lighting, including light towers for the lower oval and lighting for the netball courts, has been installed, ensuring players experience the best conditions for their games, even during evening matches.

The lower oval area has also seen improvements, with the completion of the car park, topsoil, and turf, improving accessibility and the overall look of the oval.

Once works on the new dedicated clubhouse are officially complete, it will be equipped with a canteen, meeting rooms, storage areas, changerooms, undercover spaces and accessible toilet facilities.

The Cove Sports and Community Club at Hallett Cove serves as the home base for four sporting clubs including football (Aussie rules), cricket, and two netball clubs.

With over 1000 members actively using the facility, these upgrades are important and aim to give players and supporters the best possible experience.

As part of the wider redevelopment initiative, the BMX and soccer facilities have been moved to a new location on Majors Road at O’Halloran Hill.

Moving these facilities will best allow for the Cove Sports and Community Club to transform into a multi-sport hub, complete with additional parking facilities to accommodate the growing number of visitors, with 99 new car spaces.

Council funding of $2.5 million demonstrates the commitment to improving community sports facilities, with construction works expected to conclude by mid-2024.

As the project nears completion, excitement build for the grand reveal of the brand-new and improved Cove Sports and Community Club, set to be a premier destination for sporting enthusiasts and the Hallett Cove community.
