Hawks pleased with renovated clubrooms
The Augusta-Margaret River Hawks Football and Netball Club has welcomed newly renovated change rooms, training space and bar.
Shire of Augusta-Margaret River Cr Ian Earl officially opened the space last month at a well-attended opening afternoon.
The Gloucester Park Hall has been converted into a training space with heavy-duty rubber flooring, a physio and first aid room, disabled toilets and an umpire’s change room.
Showers and change rooms were also renovated, and the bar received a new ceiling. Hawks president Steve Cummings said the renovations were well received by club members.
“You can feel the vibe is different .... the camaraderie between players has lifted,” he said.
“And gone is the old smoke-stained ceiling from the days when you could smoke in the bar.”
Cr Earl said he remembered playing football for the club when there was only one room for two teams.
“Both sides and the umpires changed together with only a sheet screen between us,” he said.
The club will also celebrate the official inclusion of netball into its name with a ladies’ day tomorrow, with drinks and nibbles from 3pm.
The home games against Bunbury tomorrow start with colts at 12.10pm, reserves at 2.20pm and league at 4.30pm at Gloucester Park.
