Clubhouse improvements planned

We are planning to improve the sports amenities facilities at Porter Reserve. The new amenities building will provide additional facilities as part of our commitment to support the community’s recreational needs and the growth of female participation in sport.

Porter Reserve is home to Newport Rugby Club and Newport Junior Rugby Club and is used heavily during the winter sports' season for rugby training, games and gala days.

The reserve has one rugby field, two smaller warm up areas and a recreational basketball hoop. The existing amenities building next to the playing field has male and female toilets, but only one unisex change room.

The proposal for the new amenities building located next to the Clubhouse includes a number of facilities:

  • female change room
  • first aid room
  • unisex accessible toilet
  • canteen
  • covered BBQ area

This is an opportunity to deliver better amenities to accommodate female players and people with a disability, as well as providing new facilities for the enjoyment of all players and spectators.

Thank you to everyone who provided comments. The project team is now reviewing feedback.
