Fraser Park Turf Upgrade

October 01, 2021

We are very excited to advise that the New Zealand Community Trust (NZCT) has recently confirmed a very substantial grant of $400K towards the upgrade of Fraser Park to a water turf . As you will probably all be aware, the playing surface at Fraser Park was due to be replaced later this year and WHA and the Stadium Trust have been working hard to raise the funds to allow us to upgrade the pitch surface to be a water-based turf. This grant from NZCT will allow Hockey to get the upgrade underway later this year and is a very significant step towards creating an international standard surface in the Hutt Valley. We would like to acknowledge NZCT and their visionary support for a legacy community asset. We will be coming out with more detail on the project once WHA and the Stadium Trust have pulled together a project plan but we wanted to let the hockey community know that are now planning with confidence to bring this exciting project to life.
