New building the perfect place for any-weather get-togethers
It was built to store all the gear a cricket club accumulates and needs to keep secure - but to call the Lobethal Cricket Club’s new building just a ‘shed’ is to do it an injustice.
The Adelaide Hills club’s latest piece of infrastructure comes with a range of add-ons that have turned it into just as much of a social hub as a storage room.
Say club officials:
“The addition of two verandahs, one facing our nets and the other facing the oval, also gives parents and spectators a shaded area to watch training and matches.
“As well, surrounding landscaping and paving gives our players a level, undercover area to prepare for training, place bags and congregate after training - all of which contribute to the 'look and feel' of training at our family-friendly club.”
In other words, for the Lobethal Tigers the new shed is as much a ‘den’ as a dumping ground for their gear.
No wonder the Tigers have such great (pardon the pun) ‘pride’!!
The $10,050 project was funded via a grant from the Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing, through Round 43 of the Active Club Program.
