Manuka Oval

Resurfacing, Showcase

Pitchcraft was awarded the contract for the resurfacing of Canberra's premier sporting stadium Manuka Oval. Manuka Oval hosts AFL, international cricket and a range of other major events. A major influence in deciding to resurface Manuka at this time is in anticipation of Canberra's first Test Match- Australia Vs Sri Lanka in 2019.

As is the trend with sports field work within 'stadium economic structure', extremely tight time frames had to be met as part of this contract. It was full steam ahead for Pitchcraft major projects running multiple specialised turf demolition and construction processes, and managing a huge amount of machine movements through busy and confined road ways.  

An extremely pleasing result for all involved in the field resurfacing with Manuka Oval hosting Big Bash League just 6 weeks after completion of the project. This is an achievement Pitchcraft are very proud of and wish Manuka Oval surface management team all the best in the continued planning and preparation for hosting an international test match.
