Hockey field ready for play

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport -

Greater Shep­par­ton City Coun­cil con­trac­tors have com­pleted the new syn­thetic hockey field as part of the re­de­vel­op­ment of the Greater Shep­par­ton Re­gional Sports Precinct.

The new syn­thetic hockey field will pro­vide teams and play­ers with a great sur­face for matches and will serve as a flex­i­ble all-weather sur­face.

Ex­ist­ing build­ings have been re­tained and will be in­te­grated via path con­nec­tions and land­scap­ing as­soci- ated car parks, as well as the ad­ja­cent soc­cer, ten­nis and multi-use field as part of the larger Greater Shep­par­ton Re­gional Sports Precinct de­vel­op­ment.

The hockey field com­po­nent of the Greater Shep­par­ton Re­gional Sports Precinct has been funded by the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment through the Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Grants Pro­gram $265 000, Greater Shep­par­ton City Coun­cil $327 000 and Goul- burn Val­ley Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion $75 000.

‘‘It’s great to see the first com­po­nent of the Greater Shep­par­ton Re­gional Sports Precinct tak­ing shape; the new hockey field also in­cludes a warm-up area, and I am sure by hav­ing the new field it will help at­tract larger sport­ing groups and com­pe­ti­tions to Greater Shep­par­ton,’’ City of Greater Shep­par­ton Mayor Dennis Pat­ter­son said.

‘‘I would like to thank the hockey clubs for their pa­tience while the new sur­face was be­ing laid, I am sure the wait has been worth­while.’’

The next stages for the Shep­par­ton Sports Precinct will in­clude re­de­vel­op­ment of the Com­mu­nity Football Com­plex.
