Construction has commenced on a $550,000 upgrade to the sporting amenities building at Duffy’s Oval Terrigal, which will provide the community with a modern, accessible and fit-for-purpose facility.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the project was funded by the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund in partnership with Central Coast Council.


“At the 2019 NSW Election I committed $250,000 from the NSW Liberal Government to upgrade the Duffy’s Oval amenities, and am proud to be delivering on this promise,” Mr Crouch said.


“The amenities are used all-year-round by Terrigal United Football Club’s 1,300 members throughout the winter months as well as the Terrigal Wamberal Little Athletics Club during summer.


“This upgrade will include redeveloping the male and female toilets, change rooms and showers, a new disability-accessible toilet and shower, a revamped canteen area and a club function room.”


“I want to thank the members of Terrigal United Football Club and Terrigal Wamberal Little Athletics Club for first alerting me to the need for funding in 2018. Literally thousands of local residents will benefit from this fantastic upgrade.”


Mayor Lisa Matthews said these upgrade works to the sporting amenities building at Duffy’s Oval Terrigal will provide the community with a modern facility with improved safety and functionality.


“We are thankful for the NSW Government’s funding contribution to enable this much-needed facility upgrade that will benefit both local and visiting users of this popular sportsground,” Cr Matthews said.


“This project is one of many infrastructures upgrades we are delivering across the Coast to support our community’s love for sport and promote active lifestyles.”


The Stronger Communities Fund is in addition to $20 million the NSW Government provided to Central Coast Council in 2016 to kick-start delivery of community infrastructure.
