New lights shine bright at the West Lakes Football Club

Media Release

28 April 2017

  • New lights installed at West Lakes Sports Club in South Australia
  • Lighting upgrade will allow the club to schedule more night training and competition matches
  • The Coalition Government invested $200,000

Today the community of West Lakes Shore celebrated the reopening of the SMOSH West Lakes Football Club oval, following upgrades to improve the ground's lighting.

Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said the upgrades have ensured that the ground complies with the South Australian National Football League's lighting standards.

“This means that the club can now have more night competition matches and training sessions,” Minister Nash said.

“I aim to help build the kinds of communities our children and grandchildren either want to stay in or come back to, and having a sporting facility with high quality lighting does just that.

“This upgrade will significantly improve visibility and security around the oval precinct at night.

“This is a welcome improvement—particularly for young players and families attending training and matches—which should encourage increased participation by young people in the local community.

The project involved removing the ground's old light poles and installing an underground cabling system and four new light poles featuring more powerful and efficient LED lights.”

The project was jointly funded with the Coalition Government providing $200,000 and West Lakes Sports Club Inc contributing $2,500.
