Sod turned on archery complex
TUGGERANONG will soon boast one
of the best archery facilities in the
country with the construction of a
$2.1 million multi-purpose complex
near Greenway Oval.
The complex will also become the
only indoor archery facility in Can-
berra. The sod was turned on the
2300sqm building on Friday.
President of the Tuggeranong Arch-
ery Club Steve Caldicott said the club
was excited the facility would finally
be built after years of planning.
The club presented the ACT Gov-
ernment with a five-year strategic plan
for Tuggeranong archery in 2007.
The Government announced in last
year's budget that it would fund the
construction of the multi-purpose
The new complex will be home to
the archery club and provide facilities
for other sports including fencing,
trampolining, table tennis, handball
It will also provide a base for the
Tuggeranong Men's Shed.
Mr Caldicott said the Tuggeranong
Archery Club was one of the largest in
Australia and members represented the
country at events such as the Olympics
and the World Cup.
The construction of the complex
will give members across all archery
disciplines access to the facilities they
need for training and competition.
Mr Caldicott said the facility would
also be of great benefit to archers in
southern and western NSW as well as
those in the ACT.
"If you're in Sydney you have got
reasonable access to facilities but out
of there this will be the focus," he said.
"It will also be a focus point for the
development of national squads."
ACT Minister for Community
Services Joy Burch said the new
complex would give archers in the
Territory access to one of the premier
archery facilities in Australia.
She said the project was very
exciting for the community because it
gave a home to many smaller sports
that often found it difficult to get a
The Tuggeranong club is hosting the
2012 National Open Archery Cham-
pionships at the end of March and Mr
Caldicott expects about 200 archers to
"It's been several years since Can-
berra has held a national archery
championship," he said.
Mr Caldicott said the club was also
hopeful of hosting the 2013 champion-
ships during Canberra's centenary
when the facility was completed.
Construction is expected to be
finished by August this year.
