New Clubrooms on the Horizon

Hamersley Rovers will soon enjoy brand new facilities and clubrooms as part of a Carine Hall redevelopment to commence next year. After years in the planning the greenlight has been given on this exciting City of Stirling project which will be a huge boost to the club.

More changerooms which will be brand new and larger, a larger storage area and a new larger bar/function room facility closer to the pitch will all feature in the new plans.

Upgrades to the Carine open space pavilion will be completed by mid-2014 after a funding boost from the State Government. The City of Stirling will receive more than $858,500 towards the multimillion-dollar expansion and refurbishment project under the Government's Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund.

Stirling Mayor David Boothman said the funding was a terrific show of support to develop the extremely popular area.

“Current facilities have struggled to cater for the existing nine sporting clubs that use the reserve,” Cr Boothman said.

“Membership numbers have reached close to 2700 and they continue to rise, with more and more youngsters getting involved in local sport, so the upgrade is much-needed.”

The overall work is set to cost more than $3 million and includes converting the existing clubrooms building into storage and changeroom areas. A new multi-use facility will also be built. Carine MLA Tony Krsticevic said the space was one of the most used reserves in the City.

“Sporting, recreational, social, tourism and environmental needs are all accommodated within the approximate 87ha open space,” Mr Krsticevic said.

“Sport and recreation is an essential element of community life.”

The project was one of 46 to receive funding under the scheme. Construction will start in July next year.
