Local sport wins with upgraded Tempe Reserve

Saturday, 7 May 2022

Today Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne along with local sporting club officials opened the first stage of the upgraded Tempe Reserve sporting grounds.

The first stage of the upgrade includes:

  • a new synthetic multi-purpose sports field
  • five turf fields with new irrigation
  • stormwater drainage and harvesting
  • flood lighting upgrade
  • four new cricket nets and two upgraded wickets
  • new pathways and tree planting

Inner West Mayor, Darcy Byrne said, “This upgrade will be of massive benefit to local sports clubs as it will result in the increased use of Tempe Reserve by multiple sport including football, cricket, rugby league and ultimate frisbee. Local clubs Marrickville Red Devils and Marrickville Cricket have new home grounds for their girls and women’s team.

“This the first step in a bigger and better sporting infrastructure at Tempe. We have an opportunity to create a regional sporting precinct that will benefit the whole of the Inner West,”

“The is part of Inner West’s commitment to create more opportunities for female participation in sport.”

Future plans for Tempe Reserve include a new $2.5 million Tempe Reserve amenities building, a $2 million sport lighting upgrade, new tennis and futsal courts and a upgrade of the indoor Robyn Webster Sports Centre.

Cricket NSW CEO Lee Germon said, “The redevelopment of this facility has been made possible by the collaboration between club, council, NSW Government and Cricket NSW and means the people of the Inner West have another opportunity to play and love cricket in their area,”
