Baldivis District Sporting Complex to become multi-use facility for current and future sporting clubs
One of the City of Rockingham’s biggest community infrastructure projects is continuing to take shape as local clubs recently toured the new facility.
Rockingham Mayor Deb Hamblin, Baldivis MLA Reece Whitby, Brumbies President Brian Emery and White Knights President Daniel Cole toured the Baldivis District Sporting Complex on Friday to see the progress of the new club grounds on Eighty Road.
The project will meet a shortage of active reserve space in Baldivis for sporting groups, with construction under way of change rooms, the district pavilion and indoor recreation centre.
Design works on the southern pavilion, floodlit multi-use outdoor hardcourts, nature play space and outdoor youth space are set to begin soon.
“Baldivis is one of the fastest growing suburbs in WA, and construction of the BDSC will be crucial in addressing the growing need for sporting and recreation facilities in the community,” Cr Hamblin said.
Mr Emery said the complex would cater for growth in both men’s and women’s football.
“The complex blew me away – it is going to be very exciting to eventually get in there. Having a clubhouse that is also a social place to come and enjoy with our families, as well having the pavilion face both ovals, is ideal,” he said.
