Overview

Sport is a huge part of our culture here on the MidCoast, from the traditional team sports to aquatic pursuits and a range of things in between.

To cater for this, we operate a large number of sporting facilities, and work with community sporting groups to deliver great places for people of all ages to participate in sport.

Across the MidCoast we have 58 full size playing fields, 26 sporting complexes, 10 chlorinated pools and two ocean pools.

We work with community groups and the State and Federal Government to invest in improving our sporting facilities.

Currently we are working towards the following improvements, thanks to funding from the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program:

  • Storage shed for Little Athletics at Harrington $75,000
  • Grandstand roof at the Wingham Sporting Complex $400,000
  • Reconstruction of the netball court at Gloucester $300,000
  • Canteen and storage at the Gloucester Recreation Grounds $250,000
  • And the following thanks to the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund:

  • Old Bar Sports Storage and Netball Court - $445,000
  • Recently we have completed upgrades at the following sporting facilities:

  • Lighting at the Lansdowne Oval
  • Upgrade of eight netball courts at the Taree Recreation Grounds
  • Lighting at Jack Ireland field, Bulahdelah
  • Canteen, amenities, storage shed and clubhouse at Aub Ferris field, Nabiac
