New facilities open at Rushforth Park

September 29th, 2020

The new facilities at Rushforth Park in Grafton will help encourage more players and other people to get involved in football, according to North Coast Football.

Football is the largest organised team participation sport on the New South Wales North Coast with nearly 5,000 players, coaches and volunteers active every week across 24 clubs and close to 300 teams.

The New South Wales Government and Clarence Valley Council today officially opened a new jointly funded $1.6 million amenities and community facility at Rushforth Park.

The new building includes changerooms for females and males, a common area, canteens, and match officials rooms. They replace smaller facilities that were decades old.

Comments attributable to Andrew Woodward, General Manager, North Coast Football.

“Quite simply, better facilities equal more and happier players.

“There’s nothing worse than going to a ground with sub-standard facilities. It can be a real turn-off. These facilities are as good as it gets.

‘Importantly, football is getting more change rooms and ones that are gender-neutral.

“The gender-neutral change rooms are a real boost for girls and women, who represent the fastest growing area of participation in football.

“These new facilities at the home of football in the Clarence will serve the area well for decades to come.

“The New South Wales Government and Clarence Valley Council are to be commended for their support of football.
