Work in progress

Middle Head Oval has been undergoing extensive upgrades to its playing surface, with works having commenced in early September.

Turfing works were completed mid-December and contractors will be scarifying, broadleaf weed spraying, fertilising and top dressing in late January. The turf species is used was Couch, known for its tendency to keep its green colour better than other varieties throughout winter and is more tolerant to wear which will assist with the its usage demands.

The oval will be finished by mid-February, with it open and available for use from 16 February.
