Intro

Esperance stadium opening
  • Esperance's new $7.8 million, multi-sport indoor stadium officially opens
  • Stadium to be used for potential State-level sport competitions and other events such as the Esperance Agricultural Show 

At the official opening, Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray said the stadium is destined to become a new regional sporting and social hub which could accommodate State-level sports events, as well as community events such as the Esperance Agricultural Show.

The new stadium includes:

  • four sprung, wooden courts for basketball/netball which can also be used by other sports such as indoor soccer and volleyball
  • change rooms
  • kitchen and kiosk facilities
  • storage space
  • additional car parking. 

The State Government invested $4.28 million into the project, including $723,000 through the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF), with the Shire of Esperance contributing an additional $3.55 million.

The new stadium was designed by local company Wells Building Designers and Consultants and it was constructed by another local company, Sime Building and Construction, which has incorporated 71 per cent local content into the final project.

The indoor stadium is Stage 1 of the Esperance Greater Sports Ground redevelopment, with Stage 2 involving a $1.63 million redevelopment of the adjacent Noel White Pavilion which is currently underway.
