Gungahlin Enclosed Oval ready for action


Released 07/04/2014

Today I joined Gungahlin football representatives to launch the eagerly awaited Gungahlin Enclosed Oval.

This spectacular community facility is an important element of the Gungahlin Town Centre that will allow local football clubs from all major codes to play matches at a high quality facility.

The multi-use oval will be shared between the Gungahlin Bulls Rugby League, Gungahlin Jets AFL, Gungahlin United Football and Gungahlin Eagles Rugby Union.

This is the best facility of its kind in Canberra, and will be a home that local football can be proud of.

Along with the senior college, community library, town park and the soon-to-be opened aquatic leisure centre, the oval forms part of a unique combination of community facilities that will bring Gungahlin residents together.

The playing surface is comprised of high quality, water-efficient turf and is lit to the Australian Standard for sporting competition.

The impressive grandstand provides seating for around 1150, of which 550 is under cover, and includes team and officials' changerooms, public toilets, canteen and storage for both users and maintenance staff.

Rooms are provided for coaches, the ground announcer and the operator of the electronic scoreboard. There is also a club room which will undoubtedly prove popular for after-match functions.
