Lighting Up Waverley

Project update!

The Waverley Hockey Club has recently been advised that the funding for our new lights has been approved by the City of Monash.  The current timetable is for replacement of the lights before the end of 2018.

The cost is a little higher than first estimated, so the contribution from Waverley Hockey Club has risen to approximately $85,000.

The project

The City of Monash have agreed to fund 80% of the cost for new lights for our hockey pitch.  Given the current lights were installed in the 1980s and only have a very limited lifespan, this is an essential project for the Club.


Waverley Hockey Club needs to provide 20% funding and this has been designated as one of the current key projects for the Club by the Executive Committee.  We are looking to raise this through our Lighting Up Waverley Campaign which kicked off in 2017 and offered the opportunity for members to contribute towards the project through the Club’s Australian Sports Foundation registration.  The project is ongoing and contributions are still encouraged.  Suggested contribution levels include:
