The three sports ovals known as ‘Carlingford High School Ovals’ have had little investment or genuine ground improvement in decades.  These ovals are used all year round for active sport and recreation by students at one adjoining High School and two adjoining Primary Schools plus community sports of Football, Cricket and OzTag. 

But these ovals have NO proper drainage, NO proper irrigation and a playing surface that does not adequately meet the needs of competitive community sport. During any wet weather and due to such poor drainage, these ovals are the first to close and the last to re-open in the district.

2022 has seen the wettest start to a winter season on record. The adjoining schools have not been able to use the fields for physical education for the entirety of term 1. The end of the Summer season saw disruptions to Cricket and OzTag competitions. Since the start of preseason, players from Roselea Football (soccer) Club have had NO training or match-play on these fields and all weekend games of North west Sydney Football Association have been either cancelled or relocated. 

With the 2022 Federal election imminent, now is the time to send a message to Canberra.  Have your voice heard, make your vote count.  Support Roselea FC, along with the schools, cricket and OzTag as we call on both Labor and Liberal Party candidates for the seat of Bennelong, to publicly back our application for a major community investment grant to help bring these grounds up to an acceptable standard for local community use.

Put your name on our petition to help us tell our political leaders what the children, youth and adults in our district need in order to gain the benefits of an active sporting and recreation lifestyle as well as the use of a quality passive outdoor space for all residents.
