After years of having to cram our footballers onto any vacant inch of grass around Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, Maccabi NSW is thrilled to announce it has secured the use of part of the brand new Waverley Oval for our football and rugby clubs this winter.

Waverley Oval

Our football and rugby clubs will benefit from the major re-development that Waverley Park has just undergone, providing more training and playing facilities for our football and rugby players and spectators.

Having previously had very limited access to Waverley Oval and the adjoining fields, Maccabi will now benefit from use of these new facilities. The new pavilion includes sporting facilities (club rooms, change rooms, and a multi-purpose indoor sports court), community facilities (community room, public toilets and provision for a cafe) and a separate area with storage areas and public toilets.

Maccabi President Max Futeran said of the great news: “It provides our clubs with much needed extra space to train, along with truly first rate facilities.”

Maccabi Rugby Club, which will hopefully feature a second team in 2012, will play their home games on the oval this season. Spectators will enjoy the comforts of watching the action from the spectacular new grandstand (pictured), protected from the elements, or you can watch the game from the newly developed cafe.

Waverley intends to completely re-lay the grounds adjoining Waverley Oval, to be ready for the 2013 season.

It is proposed that our two top senior ‘All Age’ football sides, AA1 and AA2s, who we hope to be playing in Premier League from 2013, will use Waverley as their home ground as well, while it is hoped that our junior footballers will be use the fields for small-sided games.

Max thanks, in particular, Vice President Danny Hochberg and CEO, Mick Vasin for their hard work. “These two individuals have been nurturing our relationships in order to achieve access to the fields. These achievements are a direct result of their hard work and commitment”. He also expressed thanks to Waverley Council for their long-standing support of Maccabi clubs.
