Thumbs up for new change rooms

Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - SPORT -

PERTH Hills United Foot­ball Club play­ers are en­joy­ing new fa­cil­i­ties at Mun­dar­ing’s Harry Rise­bor­ough Oval.

Re­cent im­prove­ments in­clude the in­stal­la­tion of two chang­e­rooms and an ac­ces­si­ble ablu­tion block along with up­grades to the ex­ist­ing chang­e­rooms, new LED light­ing in the pavil­ion and im­proved wa­ter sup­ply pres­sure.

Club vice pres­i­dent Fiona Pass­more said their se­nior teams were the first to use the new chang­e­rooms which pro­vide a more com­fort­able ex­pe­ri­ence for play­ers and vis­it­ing teams.

“When Perth Hills United hosts up to five ju­nior and five se­nior matches on a Sun­day and you add in all the vis­it­ing teams that equates to nearly 300 play­ers need­ing chang­ing fa­cil­i­ties in one day,” she said.

“With only two chang­ing rooms in the past and no fa­cil­i­ties for fe­males, this made for very over­crowded or un­suit­able con­di­tions with play­ers some­times re­sort­ing to us­ing the club­house or car park to change.

“Now, we’re able to of­fer a more ap­pro­pri­ate level of chang­ing fa­cil­i­ties for male and fe­male play­ers, with wheel­chair ac­cess where re­quired, which cre­ates a much bet­ter ex­pe­ri­ence for any­one play­ing at or vis­it­ing the club.”

She said dis­cus­sions with the Shire of Mun­dar­ing about the needed oval up­grades be­gan about five years ago with var­i­ous op­tions con­sid­ered.

“We are there­fore de­lighted to see the project fi­nally come to fruition,” she said.

An of­fi­cial open­ing will be held on Au­gust 28.

Har­ri­son Peet and un­der 11's soc­cer play­ers give thumbs up to the new change rooms.
