Sports field designer SPORTENG announced the successful completion of works on Randwick’s Coral Sea Park.
The upgrade of the park began in 2022 and upon its completion, the Eastern Sydney venue now boasts an impressive state-of-the-art facility that is in compliance with Football NSW Guidelines.
The new facilities not only boast a larger synthetic football field, but in the spirit of broad community engagement, the park now also features upgraded cricket nets. These upgrades are hoped to help to enhance playing and training experiences for a variety of sportspeople in the Randwick area.
SPORTENG, the firm hired by Randwick City Council to complete this project, is one of Australia’s premier Field of Play designers. They operate Australia wide and are recognised for their accuracy and strong culture of providing customers with on-time and on-budget project completions. SPORTENG has completed projects that range from community sport fields all the way to helping find surfacing solutions for professional sporting fields such as Melbourne’s Junction Oval and Paramattas Bankwest Stadium.
To meet the demands of this project, SPORTENG also worked alongside Smart Connection Consultancy and Statewide Civil, with the latter awarded to complete the project.
SPORTENG expressed their joy at completing the successful project and thanked their partners via their Facebook page.
“As requested by our client Randwick City Council, this upgrade will empower the community to make the most of this important recreational sporting hub,” they said via their announcement.
“The reconfigured field layouts and the new synthetic playing field will undoubtedly elevate the sporting experience for everyone involved.
“Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of the Coral Sea Park project – our dedicated team, our esteemed partners, and of course, the amazing Randwick City Council.
“Together, we’ve turned a vision into reality and can’t wait for everyone to enjoy this fantastic facility!”
As noted by the firm, this new facility will be a vital contribution to the Randwick community. In having a NSW football compliant pitch, the park’s readiness for play comes at a perfect time as excitement for football is set to only grow following the success of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup and Australia’s own Matildas in that global competition.
Hence, a facility like this comes at a time where participation in football is likely to continue to grow larger and it will provide many athletes both those committed and those new or trying out football to utilise world class facilities in their own backyard.
The success of this build as a predominantly football based venture will also bode well for SPORTENG as they can show their competency for building these facilities at a time when demand for new fields will deservedly be at a national all-time high.
The ball is now with all other Australian regions to recognise the opportunity and success that football has had on home soil and follow Randwick City Council by investing not only in the game, but also in local Australian firms such as SPORTENG.
