Work begins on Owls’ female-friendly facilities

The construction of new female-friendly change rooms has begun at the Angle Vale Community Sports Centre.

The $1 million facility is being built to cater for the growing number of women soccer, netball, cricket and football players in the suburb.

When completed the building will service the six existing netball courts and a future junior oval/pitch to be shared by Angle Vale’s soccer, football and cricket clubs.

All four clubs currently share a single club-room building that also features two sets of home and away change rooms.

Playford Council allocated $500,000 to the project and also received a grant of $475,000 from the state government’s Office of Recreation and Sport Female Facilities program.

City of Playford Mayor, Glenn Docherty said works on the new Angle Vale change rooms are progressing well adding to the $7.75 million invested in this regional sporting hub over the past six years.

“The building is taking shape nicely, with the frame and walls being erected and underground works completed,” Mr Docherty said.

“We’re on target for our scheduled June completion and excited to see this continued investment in the Angle Vale and surrounds community growing to its full potential.”

The facility is part of the Angle Vale Community Sports Centre masterplan, consisting of the new junior oval and senior soccer pitch, along with lighting and storm-water collection to complete the facility.

A further $4.5m is required to complete the project, for which the City of Playford will seek State and Federal funding.
