  • Two sideline shelters and security cameras installed at Vic Zealand Oval in Shoalhaven Heads, NSW
  • The shelters will reinforce Vic Zealand Oval's reputation as one of the best sporting fields in the region
  • The Coalition Government fully funded the $19,220 project

Two new sideline shelters and security cameras at Vic Zealand Oval in Shoalhaven Heads, NSW, have delivered a boost to the local sports scene, providing cover for players and better security at the oval.

Minister for Regional Development, Territories and Local Government John McVeigh said this was another example of the Coalition Government's continued investment in regional communities.

“The installation of the sideline shelters and eight security cameras will complement the facility's excellent drainage, and will reinforce the Oval's reputation as one of the best fields in the region,” Dr McVeigh said.

Federal Member for Gilmore Ann Sudmalis said she was pleased to see the upgrade complete, providing local clubs with better facilities to host games.

“The upgrades at Vic Zealand Oval will provide local sporting teams with improved shelter for players and enhanced security at the oval, which we hope will boost local football participation,” Mrs Sudmalis said.

“As a result of these improvements, the Shoalhaven Heads Berry Football Club hopes to attract NSW State Titles and High School Championships to the region, providing the chance for our local sports stars to compete against some of the nation's best emerging athletes.”

The $19,220 project was fully funded by the Coalition Government.

Several local businesses provided in-kind contributions towards the project—Unreal Rocks laid the concrete slabs, Diamond Sporting Supplies installed the sideline shelters and Infinity Energy connected the cameras. The project created three jobs during construction.
