Published on 26 November 2022

Community sport including Little Athletics and the Mosman Cricket Club, will benefit through major upgrades to Balmoral Oval thanks to NSW Government funding, as announced today by the Member for North Shore, Ms Felicity Wilson MP, and the Minister for Sport, the Hon. Alister Henskens SC MP.

“I am very pleased to share that Balmoral Oval has successfully secured a $1 million grant through the NSW Government’s Multi-Sport Community Facility Fund.” 

“This is a huge win for our local community, with many different clubs using Balmoral Oval for their activities. Sport is such an important part of our community, and I am always proud to see investment in our local clubs and facilities through our various grants programs.”

This funding will go towards upgrading the existing oval, including playing surface redeployment, installation of 'Santa Ana' Couch natural turf surface, installation of new sub-surface drainage and automated irrigation system, construction of two new synthetic cricket wickets on concrete slabs and reconstruction of turf wicket table.

In addition to the playing field upgrade, a new perimeter path will be installed, existing floodlights will be upgraded to LED lights, and installation of Athletics surfaces to include an all-weather long jump running track, an all-weather surface for a high jump, and the installation of an all-weather 4 lane 110-metre running track.

Minister for Sport Alister Henskens said the NSW Government has now invested $200 million in new and upgraded community sporting facilities through the first two rounds of the program.

“These projects will not only provide more opportunities for people to play sport, but they will also generate a local sports facility infrastructure boom, creating thousands of jobs and delivering an economic boost for communities across NSW,” Mr Henskens said.

“Regardless of age, ability or the sport you play, this program is delivering game-changing projects that promote participation and secure a brighter future for local communities across NSW.”

Mosman Mayor Carolyn Corrigan thanked Minister Henskens and Felicity Wilson for supporting the successful grant application.

“Mosman residents can now look forward to enjoying upgraded infrastructure at this popular and much-loved oval. Clubs and individual players of a wide range of sports will benefit from the planned upgrades which can now be implemented through this vital funding.” Mosman Mayor Carolyn Corrigan said.
