Hopeful redevelopment for Bill Smyth Oval

Written by:

The renewed push by users of Bill Smyth Oval, the Oval Redevelopment Committee and Eurobodalla Shire Council is close to setting out a new master plan that will outline the future of the whole sports precinct

No clubhouse at Bill Smyth Oval, in Narooma, means training teams have to huddle around an open fire to keep warm in winter.

“Council talks about Bill Smyth Oval as being one of the most used ovals in the shire, it’s huge with big numbers using it.

“Our interest is not just the bricks and mortar and sport, but the youth, keeping kids involved with sport, establishing life values that keep them off the street,” he said.

Mr Peachey said they had been working very closely with council and to council’s credit they had been very receptive.

“Anything we do, we tick tack with them and vice versa, they do the same.”

There are no separate gender change rooms at Bill Smyth Oval which often causes angst among users.
