Bathurst Hockey Centre will have upgraded toilets and change rooms ahead of the next season’s competition thanks to the NSW Government granting Bathurst Hockey Association $7,500 for the upgrades as part of the Local Sports Grants program for 2021-2022.
The Bathurst Hockey Centre is a sporting destination for competitive players with a state-of-the-art water-based field and two hybrid turf surface fields all under lighting. The complex accommodates up to 2000 spectators and will now have upgraded toilet and change room facilities to house such large crowds.
Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said the funding means the complex will now have amenities to accommodate local and visiting teams.
“Bathurst Hockey Centre is home to some major hockey tournaments and now there will be change room and toilet facilities to accommodate for such large numbers of teams and spectators,” Mr Toole said.
“This will make weekend sports more enjoyable and bring even more tournaments to the region which is great for the sport and for the local economy.”
Bathurst Hockey Association President Kent Bestwick said the club is excited for the upgraded facilities.
“We have had a lot of work done to the fields in the past years and now it is time for the rest of our complex to match the high quality of facility we have to offer local and visiting teams,” Mr said.
