Norman Griffiths Oval
Artificial Turf Project
Norman Griffiths Oval is one of just 2 full sized football pitches that West Pymble Football Club has access to using as a home ground during the winter competition season. Our club has over 860 registered players and current lacks the number of pitches required to adequately meet the training and competition match demands of these members.
The artificial pitch proposal will greatly increase the capacity of our club to host training and competition matches for our members. Additionally Kuring-gai Council provides our club with very limited access to Norman Griffiths Oval for summer football and during the pre-season as typically they repair and recover the ground during this period.
A typical grass pitch it weather dependant and quickly becomes unplayable after rainfall. This is the oval ranging from a lake to lush grass equally as difficult on play on.
An artificial pitch would allow the club's members and players from other clubs to enjoy usage of the ground during periods outside of the winter football competition season.
It would also enable matches to be held in wet weather when turf grounds are closed.
The all weather surface would be a transformation indeed.
We are seeking donations to assist in getting this project off the ground (so to speak).
